Did you ever study economics?

Dear George:

Did you ever study economics while getting your MBA? My daughter is an MBA but cannot find a job after being laid off in April. She is also suffering from complications from an ectopic pregnancy. Her husband was laid off last week, because his sales job was outsourced. They now have no health insurance, and she may need surgery in the coming months.

We live in a country where we cannot afford healthcare, workers have no rights, our air is polluted, as is our government. It think it is time you came out of your bubble, opened your eyes, and realized that ‘underprivileged’ includes anyone in the lower 80% of your economic population.

    You should move from Mexico to America, we spend more on the health care of our citizens than anyother country in the worldbr/>b>
    Both my parents got laid off they seen it comming for months and instead of looking for another job they waited till it happened. They had new jobs that week that didn't pay much but now they make as much as they did before it just took a couple of months for them to find something they liked but at least they got jobs right of the bat that paid thier bills and had insurance. There are job you just may have to move to find a good one and if you don't want to move then its no one elses fault is it?
