I lost my job as mental health case worker almost six months ago and just turned 53. As a social worker in rural ohio i have never made more than $32000 a year. Now i am living on unemployment which is $264 a week but is due to end mid December. Ive had three interviews in that time and in two instances much younger women were hired. I have some health issues and no health insurance. If i dont find emplyment soon i will be forced to move in with my newly married daughter. I am depressed and scared.
