employed vs. unemployed (e.g. what is the current employment status for those responding?)

This isn't in the political forum, so disregard the philosophical debate concerning employment.

It's a poll to determine the employed VS. unemployed of the r4x4 crew. Check employed if you have a job or check unemployed if you don't have a job?:banghead:

The results will be included in an e-mail to Ensign and Reid with hope of clarifying their positions concerning the current economic depression.

I couldnt agree more. Today I came to realization that savings are not infinite. I've been unemployed for a little more than a month. Fortunately, between Uncle Sam and savings I wont be going to the poor house anytime soon, but time to tighten up.

I was "unemployed" for 9 months a couple of years ago.
I worked my butt off the whole time.
Took any job I could find on craigslist, drove patients for a company doing workers rehab.
If it was a possibility to make a few $$$ legally, I was there in a hurry......
(I was not eligible for unemployment)

But I agree, it sucked not having a regular job, have place to go everyday, and know you had a paycheck coming up

How true that is, I have tons of plans on stuff to do, but no cash flow for most of it.

I have been out of work since August of '08, things are damn tight in our household, I tend to do without many things so as to make things good for my kids.

Yes, if you have an employer that's giving you a paycheck be it p/t or on call you're still employed.

I was thinking people were being, well for a lack of a better word retarded. Until I saw you didn't edit your post until "4 hours ago". Either way seemed like a simple enough question to me, stop over thinking everything! :thumbsup:
