Going On 3 Years

I have been bouncing around temp work for the last few months. I haven't worked a full time job in nearly 3 years. I am single and live with my folks. The only assistance I get is Food Stamps and those went down from $200 to $180 due to the cost of living. I realize that Unemployment should not be used as a crutch but like alot of other people I have a stack of bills and no money to pay them.

I really hope that the government will decide to approve this extension and maybe I'll land a job. It's gotten so bad that I cannot even get a job in the retail field just to put some money in my pocket.
