61. Not anytime
But after a disaster like Katrina I think the rich mans rules can stand to be relaxed a bit.I mean what would you do in THIER situation.Look a bit AHEAD..What can they DO?? We got a crisis now and in the near future for a good while it will be a problem..all those people that are freaking out now, will be looking for a place to rent, looking for a place to work and where have the workplaces gone,they've been smashed,Condemned...There will be very still competition for any job now....Also rents around the area for lower incomes will go up because of demand,with a million homeless and alot of wrecked cars what can you do? There will be lots of poor homless trying to get out of NO and looking for work..The nearby jobs won't come easy unless you can getfarther OUT of the area ,far enough(costs money)to where there are jobs left or unless you are able to do construction/salvage and usually outside contractors are hired for this work not locals...What's a 20 year old temp to do when all the offices are gone?
How will shetend her traumatized kids, find shelter and find work with no work clothes,no money or shelter to go to? Can she show up at a job interview in Texas in disaster chic? in tattered scummy clothes with her kidsand no resume? No! She has to prepare herself to present herself to propective picky conservitive self centered employers who like to pretend it's all the poor peoples fault they can't get out of poverty..
