Sad Stock Market Day

August 4th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

My dh was watching the stock market numbers for the last half hour before it closed...dropping almost 513 points...newscasters claimed it was the biggest drop since 2008.

Tomorrow the unemployment numbers come out...I'm wondering if we need to fasten our seatbelt for yet another drop. I hope not, but things are looking grim. We were watching the news and they said veterans who have returned from oversees are coming back and having problems getting jobs. One gal said she has applied for 300 jobs -- she wants to be a chef, but said she'd be happy at a fast food restaurant, just to get a job and her foot in the door.

I hope tomorrow is a better day.

    Didn't the companies they worked for before have to hold their jobs for them? I thought it was illegal for them not to get their jobs back. Unless these are people that went straight into the military from school and never worked.

    The news report didn't say, but I bet you are right about going straight into the military from high school. They looked pretty young.
