The sequester blues is upon us. So many Americans going out and about do not understand it nor choose to deal with it. We the American people are hearing abject and dismal predictions for cut backs but we are not seeing them immediately. Does this mean that we should put frequent sadness and hopelessness aside? Not on your life. It is a slow trickle down effect as we are absolutely hearing of furloughs and layoffs and cut backs on tourist attractions, private and public sectors following suit. Strong arming and scary predictions are not just pie in the sky, they are wake up to reality issues. Jobs are scarce but in addition they are not keeping up with the costs of living even on a farm in Alabama. Employers are milking the bad news by overworking those that can land a position.
Today you work until you drop and do not dare to sass your boss or a partner in the business or you will be out of a job like gas in the wind.
Also, keep the word "vacation" out of the mix when you are on a job interview.
