DH might loose job - insurance in MI? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
Its not just the auto industry -
They are talking about closing a school in our district - and all those teachers have way more seniority than I do.


*hugs*

We all need to hold on, kiss our babies and do what we can.

Yeah it's not just the auto industry. My dh is a carpenter and has been laid off since the end of September. I'm kissing my babies everyday and just trying to be greatful for what we do have.

Good luck to everyone on this thread whose struggling in this terrible economy. We're not alone in this. I certainly am not happy that others are facing the hard time we are but sometimes it feels good to know we're not alone. Then I realize that we didn't mess up, that this is bigger than all of us.

Hugs to all

I think that is what the rest of the country doesn't get: All of Michigan will suffer if the Big 3 doesn't get help. It makes me sick when I hear people saying to let the big 3 go - they don't realize that the little people will suffer. Hugs, mamas!

Yes, let's all start a commune, a little paradise where we live off the land and share everything and no one needs money.

We need fantasies at a time like this.

Not just Michigan, either...most of the Midwest will be devastated. They just don't get that it spreads out into everything.

We are ok for now but we no longer own our own home, which is emotionally so scarring for us. And the hit on my DH's self-esteem has been ENORMOUS. His job is tied to the Auto Industry but not at a Tier 1 level, more like Tier 2-3. He does tech support for the software engineers that contract to the Big Three. So the less engineers there are to support, the less tech support that's needed. He's just working his butt off and we're praying and praying.

Anyway, to the OP...I'm sorry to hijack. I just couldn't read this thread without responding, too.

((((hugs to all))))

I'm sorry, too, to hijack this thread. I just think that all this has opened such a vein in everyone. I wanted to mention a book I read last year or so, The Disposable American by Louis Uchitelle. I thought of it because he talks about the effect of lay-offs on the very self-esteem of the people the effect. Your dh is NOT alone. Give him this book and tell him that it's not his fault!

Sometimes I hope that all this downsizing leads to anger and a renewed labor movement in this country. But that's certainly REALLY off topic, so nevermind!

OP, have you had any luck with finding insurance?
