RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I do feel that I will soon be on my own. I was layed off March 1, 2009 so it has been 14 mos. Unemployment benefits have been great but resumes and online applications have yielded nothing. Companies rarely even acknowledge your application and resume. I can assume there are so many applicants these companies are overwhelmed themselves. My benefit extensions should be cut in half this month unless there are other extensions available. We will not be able to continue. My COBA health coverage ends this month.
At 55 and my husband 60 yrs. old (lead carpenter 30+ years) also unemployed in Bend, OR leave us with few choices.
We can sell our upgraded 1500 sq.ft home of 15 yrs. We can ask my mom to move in and help us now that she is a widow. Staying in Bend does not look like an option for us.
