I worked for a construction company for over 30 years. January 9, 2014 the company shut down with no warning. I was told to go on unemployment while looking for a new job. The unemployment benefits ran out before I could find work. It seems no one wants to hire an experienced man over the age of 40, I'm 52. I can still work but while I'm not working the bills keep coming. I had my car reposessed last month but I still need a car for when I do find work. I can't afford to buy a car right now, maybe if I get a job near home.
