I think there are just so many people “fighting” for the same jobs. And the problem is for people who have been in the field for years, is that companies are going for younger less experienced workers so they do not have to pay as much. My husband is in networking and there is just nothing in this area. For the past 6 months he has been doing contract work for a local school system. We are still praying they will hire him full time just because of our need for benefits. He actually would make more money doing contract work, but once you figure out that they are not taking taxes out, so we will have to pay all of that, plus he is a diabetic and his insulin is over 800.00 a month, we would come out better if he were full time getting paid less. It really is just a messed up world we are living in now.
