Well, you heard the latest debate between McCain and Obama. They wrangled a little bit (At least we know John McCain is still kicking), and did a whole lot of finger pointing. But what were the two issues that weighed most in the debate? The economy and health care.
The economy is obviously in poor shape. McCain mentioned that over 900,000 jobs have been lost this year. The financial crisis, outsourcing, restructuring, government corruption and other complicated factors are the culprits. You can’t point your finger at just one thing. If you don’t have a job, having healthcare is going to get a whole lot tougher. So what to do? What if you’ve been laid off, or are looking at a potential layoff in the near future?
I’m no expert, but there are some obvious possible solutions that would allow you to deal with the economy and healthcare at the same time. As the saying goes, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Getting into the healthcare field itself could be a solution. There are jobs in healthcare that are in high demand, and the shortages are at a critical stage. Obviously, it takes a certain kind of person to work at these types of jobs, but if you just happen to be one of those people, checking out some lpn schools could, for some, be an absolute savior in this tough economic time.
Now is not the time to sit back and wait for Uncle Sam, or some other entity to “save” you. Folks, we’re on our own, and if you don’t do something, you’re likely to be a very unhappy person, very soon. I mentioned a nursing degree, because once you get that-you’re practically guaranteed a job somewhere. You can’t say that about very many professions.
