The way companies paly with your life
I worked for an insurance for ten years. In the middle of a work day I was told they were going to lay me off. Complete surprise. One day I was gainfully employed and the nexit I was collecting unemployment checks. In the mean time I;m fifty years old.
After a great deal of difficulty I get another job and I stay working for six years. The company did a merger and voila. I'm unemployed again. Now I'm fifty eight.
OK I finally get yet another job with the state and after three and a half years they decide to lay whole departments off. by now I'm sixty three.
OK now no one wants to hire me. I'm too old . I take social security and live on savings and like I said social security.
Had I been able to retire form the insurance company where I had worked so hard and well I would be collecting a pension.
If I had been able to work till I was sixty six I would be collecting a small annuity at least and I woud have been able to use state health insurance.
Getting old isn't fun if your a billionaire much less being p*** poor like I am.
