Layoffs, layoffs, and layoffs. Everyday you hear about more companies laying off. Reasons?
The economy.Companies wanting to compete with others going offshore. Overhead is too high. I mean come on. Keep jobs here. Americans need the jobs. You will go out of business and not get ANY new projects when this happens because nobody will be able to afford to create business. People won’t be able to buy anything and again the economy will continue to tank.
Why bring departments to other countries? Why help their economies? We need to think about America first and foremost. That is what matters. What about our people? Our government is giving tax incentives to businesses to go oversees. Why? What the hell is the reason for that? Hell… tax them for going over there.
More and more people are loosing jobs in the Oil and Gas industry which is a huge job industry. Bring that industry back home. Find it here. Such as the Keystone pipeline. Why are we not approving it? Lets break it down. How many jobs will it create to build it? Then, how many jobs will it save to maintain it? Vehicle Manufacturers. Why not stop importing so many cars? Bring back building more vehicles here at a reasonable price? How many jobs will that create? How much money will we save for the importing fee and tax from the other countries?
What about government getting the hell out of out private business? I mean the taxation is ridiculous. All companies should have a specific tax. And it should not be so much that the company spends so much that they bring home just a little bit of profit. Further more, taxing citizens? UM, no. How about let us, go ahead and drop the governments wages. Why should ya’ll make more than the average citizens? Exactly what the hell do they do that proves they should make as much as they do, when half the time, they do not do what we have asked?
And Welfare? Again, UM, No. This was meant to be a temporary help. Nobody should be on it for life. Especially a non-citizen. Get them the hell off. That will help the economy. Why is it the citizens are suffering the most? Why is the wage so driven down? None of this is right and the government is getting all of this back ass backwards.
Personal story, which happens to be mine. Both my husband and I, are in the Oil and Gas industry. My job is going offshore. My husband’s job (well lack thereof) is projects. And there isn’t any at this time. So what does that mean? We are in fear of loosing are job at any given time. We bought our house in December of 2015. We have a ten year old and a 5 year old. Both their birthdays are in a few weeks. What the hell are we going to do? What other experience we do have. We both have been looking for months for other jobs. But who is hiring? And if a company is, they want a specific qualification that neither of us have. Or a specific degree that neither of us have. OR we just don’t have as many years. OR they decided on somebody else. I mean we have done so many applications and looked on so many websites. We are practically begging for a chance. Any chance that can keep us afloat to keep our house and bills paid. I don’t have a degree. My husband has TWO. My husband has take jobs that have nothing to do with his degrees just to keep us afloat while waiting to get something.
What else can we do? I know there are so many other people in the same boat. And I truly feel sorry for them. Where can they go when this is all they know. When they are a certain age and companies don’t want to pay what they deserve?
This country and these politicians can do better. They can fix this shit. They can go and change this before its too late. This president can get his head out of his butt and change his stances and stop making certain groups happy and others unhappy and left jobless.Other than screwing people that are still working paying for others who have to live on welfare and unemployment, living off the government. That is the last thing many people want to do. Some people, like myself and my husband love working. Love to have that to be proud of and it looks like we won’t have that. We want to raise our kids this responsibility.
Its stressful. Every single day, to wonder if this will be the last day. If i will come home with a job. If i will go to work and still have a job. OR it i will get called into the office to be told I no longer have a job, insurance or benefits.
