How 9/11 affected our interviewees

The lives of our Over 50 and Out of Work interviewees have intersected with many of the past half century’s seismic  events, including the Sixties, Vietnam, the civil rights movement, the decline of U.S. manufacturing, Reaganomics, corporate mergers and restructuring, outsourcing, globalization and 9/11.

A decade ago, two of our 100 interviewees were in Manhattan on their way to work on the morning of Sept. 11 when planes struck the twin towers.

Take a look at these two brief videos on our blog about their experiences:

I was watching the two buildings burn, when they collapsed … Steve Borton, Valley Cottage, N.Y.


Now it’s September 2001, and I’m walking from my home in Greenwich Village towards the World Trade Center, and I see a plane go into the North Tower…Janet Falk, Manhattan

If you are 50-plus and your employment was affected by 9/11, please add your comment to this blog post.

cartierlovejesduas I have owned 4 Triumph 2000s the first being an ex Oxfordshire police car that was a mk1 and a 2.5 but the injection had been replaced by 175 cds because they did not trust the injection system. I then hankered after a mk2 and purchased one but it was a proper rot box. This was due to the body panels being of foreign origin and were rusty when it came out of the factory. My 3rd one was an estate and I really loved it. Its main fault was it was a 1973 car and I had to pay road fund license on it. I sold it in 2007 for very little money. Last year I purchased a mk2 auto in a very sorry state but I have persevered and it is now fully restored. The only problem with them now is that body spares are very hard to come by. This is due to the banger racers smashing them up and suppliers do not want to hold stocks. I love these cars as they are smooth, heavy and are different to anything else on the road. van cleef sautoir réplique [url=]van cleef sautoir réplique[/url]

These memories bring back the tears and the realization again how we are all the same in loss be it jobs, or the horror of a beloved life lost.
