Tent Cities

I just watched a story on CBS news about tent cities cropping up around the nation.

This is not a new phenomenon by any means but it’s still rare you see the evening news focus on things like this. The part that was really unsettling to me was the couple they interviewed. They had both worked and lived in a rented house. The husband had been a forklift operator, when they both lost their jobs, they ended up homeless, living in a tent.

I guess what scares me most is the fact this guy’s work experience is similar to mine. They briefly looked over his resume while interviewing him. Where he’s at there just isn’t any jobs to be had. At least not for him or the other people in the tent city.

It makes it really scary knowing when you wake up tomorrow, you won’t have a job but not knowing what you can do about it.
