I keep having people post things on facebook regarding people on unemployment and how they are slackers and "should go work at McDonald's" and stop sucking off of working people/government. I know none of these posts are directed at me as a person, but being unemployed for the first time since I was 16 years old (NOT by my choice) and have been desperately searching for a job in my field for the last 5 months has NOT been easy. I've even broadened my search to outside of social work, and still nothing.
I think the fact that this unemployment is happening right before my wedding and everyone is assuming I'm not taking a job so I can be a housewife is making this much worse (I'm not just assuming this, its been said to me). I'm just annoyed and have new sympathy for the people who are unemployed and looking for work.
