the weekend before last i wasn't expecting him home & he travelled home just to spend a few hours with us before he had to leave in the early hours of the morning to go back! was so happy to see him :)

Tell me about it...there's literally 100's of applicants for every position now, it's hard to find any work, so everyone is downgrading, just to be able to pay the bills.

The problem is, with more people losing there jobs, it sets insecurity with spending, therefore businesses then begin to suffer and the cycle of unemployment continues to grow. :-(

The stress of finances is getting too much for everyone at the moment.

Hi, I think its happening in most industries. My Oh works in IT and he can only find work in mainland Europe now. Its hard as we only see him 4 days a month. But at least it pays the mortgage!

I work in a school, and the kids here do not have a clue of how difficult it will be for them when they leave. So many of them actually believe that their parents will support and pay their way forever!

i was in the building trade in london and hurt my back 3 years ago as it was starting to go down hill.. im actually lucky i done my back in as i walked , well hobbled into a network controllers job.. i would go back on the tools 2mora if the work and my back held up but i feel its all over... why would some one pay say 120 a day for a bricklayer when they can get a monkey for 40 a day?
admittedly the work is standard is double poor but ppl are so skint they'd rather have a slap bang polish or what ever the region they come from then a good ol english builder..

mps are telling us, if we want work , go abroad?!?!?! cheeky c###ts

Had the same problem around January-March time at our work. Some people including myself just took holiday to build up the work.
Thankfully, for everyone the orders have come back and all is good again.
I hope this happens for you gap:thumbsup:

My dad was in the same position, he's been on a very good wage earning anything from £500-£800 per week for several years and then the doors opened for eastern Europe and suddenly, no one wanted an excellent carpenter, even at a cut price but would prefer someone that thinks they can do any job but it's of terrible quality.

Since then, my dad has practically been unemployed the whole time and hates being out of work but he's now willing to do practically any job at any price and still struggles.

Who would of thought the country's situation would of changed this drastically in such a short space of time? :?

Make some flyers and distribute them around door to door in your local area, see if your local doctor/dentist/school/council notice board will allow you to leave some there for people to pick up...

I am self-employed too.. this yr is really hard, things are *just* starting to turn around but i think people's confidence has taken a knock and it'll be awhile before they start throwing money around willy nilly again.

Good luck with everything x

This is a strange situation for me as i have never struggled for work, i am very thorough, professional in what i do, i have never had to 'beg' for work.

Thing is though this was going to happen sooner or later, but i have always stayed one step ahead of this recession, now i need to stop bleating and face facts that things aint what they used to be.

Funny when i have earned good money for the last few years.

You arent begging... you're marketing your many skills so that more people can know about them and have the opportunity to contact you :)

Look on it as self advertisement :)
