Dreaming Big Again, March Stay Thirsty column


Sam and I rode Amtrak from New York to Washington, D.C. and back last month because we had two screenings of Set for Life in the capitol city. The crowded train rumbled along this portion of the nation’s heavily populated Northeast Corridor at a middling pace, not a rapid, smooth roll. The WiFi reception onboard this time was respectable, thank goodness. It is never lightning fast, but sometimes it is nonexistent.

Along the route, we passed hundreds of abandoned buildings – former homes and businesses – crumbling, decaying, surrounded by heaps of trash and filth. The passengers concentrated on their laptops or conversations and ignored the depressing view that could be seen through the train’s windows. They seemed to have acclimated themselves to the gloomy vista of struggling cities within the context of a weak national economy.  To read more, click here.

I've been out of work for almost 2 years. Doesn't seem that a college degree, years of experience, or an impeccable work history (never call in sick) matter anymore. Jobs I've applied for (hundreds of resumes & memberships in websites) don't generate responses, yet I've seen the same positions come back around again only after a short time. Who are these people hiring? Also, several interviews have resulted in no responses (letters, calls, or e-mails). The older worker is being snubbed for younger workers who, in most cases, require hefty training dollars. Why not save the money and pay an experienced, reliable 50+ employee?
