Hmmm…have you noticed the gas prices lately? They are up again. Not surprisingly. My mother just found out that her oil company won’t let her lock-in at the not-so-low price that kerosene is going for at this time. Food prices continue to rise. Bill rates continue to rise. People continue to lose jobs. More and more people are being forced to utilize food cupboards, and the FoodStamp rate has actually gone up again.
Things are not looking so good. I am out of work again, and can’t seem to find anything local. I will be posting for babysitting again, but even that won’t pay my bills. Of course, with more people out of work there is less need for childcare.
Even with the little bit of money that I make monthly freelance writing. Food is the only thing I seem to be able to afford these days.
My income tax refund didn’t go all that far either.
I had read that it seemed as though we are coming out of the recession. I’m not so sure about that. It just doesn’t seem so. I am wondering about a full-blown depression in this economic downturn.
It seems like almost everyone is living the low-income life these days.
Anyone want to sound off on this? Feel free to leave comments.
