Laid Off - Again

 

continued

But most of those interviewed for this article want to stay in the area, even if it means waiting longer for a job. And hard as that is, it does happen: though Smith, Bianchi, and Erdman are still looking for full-time jobs, some repeatedly laid-off workers are now getting paychecks again.

Madeleine Borthwick, who's in her mid-fifties, spent almost a year looking for a job. She was fired from Republic Parking, she says, after a coworker wrongly accused her of using profanity, and then lost a job at a fast-food restaurant. During her long jobless spell, she did volunteer work-and was grateful that her husband still had his job. "He has been so supportive, my rock," she says.
