  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:35.260
  • WHEN I WAS OUT SWEEPING THE STREETS, I WAS
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:37.040
  • TELLING MYSELF THAT I GOT TO STOP THE NONSENSE.
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:40.150
  • THE GAME IS OVER.
  • 00:07:40.170 --> 00:07:41.270
  • IT'S TIME TO FOCUS, LISTEN, LEARN, AND DO
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:44.140
  • EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO DO TO GET YOUR LIFE
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:46.000
  • ON TRACK.
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.240
  • OTHERS HAVE DONE IT.
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:49.030
  • SO CAN YOU.
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:50.110
  • - YOU WILL SEE THEM WITH THE BLUE BUCKETS AND THEY
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:52.050
  • WILL BE STREET CLEANING.
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:53.140
  • THEY DO SNOW AND GRAFFITI REMOVAL AND MAKE SURE THE
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.270
  • COMMUNITY STAYS CLEAN.
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.070
  • - AND GETTING PAID $13.50 AN HOUR HAS THE
  • 00:07:57.090 --> 00:08:00.080
  • BENEFIT OF A PAYCHECK.
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:02.020
  • - AND THE PRIDE IN EARNING THAT FIRST
  • 00:08:02.040 --> 00:08:04.190
  • PAYCHECK WAS OVERWHELMING.
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:09.090
  • - THE SELF-WORTH AND SELF-ESTEEM THAT A
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:11.090
  • MAN GETS FOR WORKING THAT THEY EXPERIENCE THAT'S
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:14.190
  • IMPORTANT TO THEM.
  • 00:08:14.210 --> 00:08:16.100
  • - THE FIRST TIME I GOT A PAYCHECK I WAS SO HAPPY.
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:19.100
  • - WHEN YOU GET AN HONEST PAYCHECK YOU DON'T GOTTA
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:21.060
  • LOOK BEHIND YOUR BACK.
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:22.130
  • THERE'S NO GUILT TRIP.
  • 00:08:22.150 --> 00:08:24.090
  • YOU'RE WORKING TOWARDS SUCCEEDING.
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:26.290
  • - I REMEMBER WANTING TO SEND MY WHOLE PAYCHECK TO
  • 00:08:27.010 --> 00:08:31.250
  • MY KIDS, TRYING TO FIX EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:31.270 --> 00:08:34.170
  • BUT IT GAVE ME THE RESOURCES TO BEGIN A
  • 00:08:34.190 --> 00:08:37.250
  • PROCESS OF BEING A PART OF THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:40.070
  • NOT JUST FINANCIALLY.
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:41.190
  • JUST IN BEING THERE AND DEVELOPING A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.190
  • THAT HAD BEEN TORN APART AFTER YEARS
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:48.070
  • OF SEPARATION.
  • 00:08:48.090 --> 00:08:50.220
  • - AFTER THREE MONTHS OF CLEANING THE CITY STREETS
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:53.110
  • AND PARKS, THE DOE FUND'S CLIENTS HAVE AN
  • 00:08:53.130 --> 00:08:56.010
  • OPPORTUNITY TO TRAIN FOR A CAREER.
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:59.050

  • THE CULINARY TRACK IS ACTUALLY ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:08.260
  • SUCCESSFUL TRACKS. THE CULINARY PROGRAM HAS
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:11.010
  • A VERY VERY INTENSIVE PROGRAM.
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:13.210
  • - A LOT OF OUR GUYS DID A LOT OF COOKING WHEN
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:16.130
  • THEY WERE UPSTATE INSIDE IN THE MESS HALL, AND WE
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:19.170

  • GET A JOB, A REAL JOB IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY.

  • WE MAKE ABOUT A THOUSAND MEALS A DAY.
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:27.190
  • THAT'S 400 MEN THAT HAVE TO EAT EVERY DAY.
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:30.070
  • - YOU LEARN ABOUT SAFETY, YOU LEARN ABOUT
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:32.140
  • KNIFE SKILLS, HOW TO PREPARE A MEAL, HOW TO
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:35.080
  • MAKE AN ENTIRE MEAL FOR 200 HUNDRED GUYS.
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:37.280
  • I BEGAN TO FALL IN LOVE AND ENJOY WHAT I WAS
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:40.160
  • DOING SO IT WAS LIFE-CHANGING.
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:42.090
  • - MOST OF THEM ARE GONNA GET A JOB AS A PREP COOK,
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:44.130
  • A SIOUX CHEF, MAYBE $13, $15 DOLLARS AN HOUR.
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:47.270
  • - THE DOE FUNDS READY WILLING AND ABLE PROGRAM
  • 00:09:47.290 --> 00:09:50.120
  • HAS ONE GOAL IN MIND FOR THESE FORMER PRISONERS.
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:54.120
  • - THE END GOAL OF ALL OF OUR TRAINING FOR
  • 00:09:54.140 --> 00:09:56.230
  • THE DOE FUND IS STABLE EMPLOYMENT; STABLE, GOOD,
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:59.130
  • LONG-TERM EMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:09:59.150 --> 00:10:01.020
  • - I DID TWO YEARS IN PRISON.
  • 00:10:01.040 --> 00:10:02.280

  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:05.070
  • KITCHEN AS PART OF THE CULINARY COURSE, GOT MY
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:07.140
  • FOOD HANDLERS CERTIFICATE.
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:09.130
  • - TYREE WORKS AS A PORTER FOR US.
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:12.200

  • SO TEN YEARS DOWN THE LINE, THAT GUY'S NOT
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:24.100
  • GOING ANYWHERE.
  • 00:10:24.120 --> 00:10:25.280
  • I THINK THAT'S WHAT OUR EMPLOYER PARTNERS KIND OF
  • 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:28.190
  • LIKE ABOUT OUR GUYS THAT THEY COME EVERY DAY, THEY
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:32.230
  • SHOW UP FOR WORK, AND THEY'RE GONNA WORK.
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:34.250
  • - TYREE SHOWS UP.
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:37.190
  • HE SHOWS UP LIKE 110 PERCENT.
  • 00:10:37.210 --> 00:10:39.190
  • HE HAS TAUGHT ME HOW SILLY MY PROBLEMS ARE.
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:44.000
  • - THE PRIDE THAT COMES WITH MAKING AN HONEST
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:47.100
  • LIVING FOR A LOT OF GENTLEMEN WHO HAVE
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:48.230
  • FAMILIES AS WELL, THEIR CHILDREN NOW HAVE A
  • 00:10:48.250 --> 00:10:51.000
  • DIFFERENT TYPE OF ROLE MODEL TO SEE.
  • 00:10:51.020 --> 00:10:52.230
  • THEIR FATHER IS NOW IN THE PICTURE AS OPPOSED
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:55.050
  • TO BEING BEHIND BARS.
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:56.260
  • - GOING THROUGH THIS PROGRAM WAS AT THE POINT
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:11:00.250
  • WHERE I FIRST HAD CONTACT WITH MY CHILDREN.
  • 00:11:00.270 --> 00:11:04.280
  • I HAD NOT BEEN IN THEIR LIVES FOR OVER 19 YEARS.
  • 00:11:05.000 --> 00:11:09.110
  • AND TODAY I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL SONS,

  • INVOLVEMENT IN THE DOE FUND.
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:26.110
  • - I GOT MARRIED LAST YEAR AND WE JUST BOUGHT A
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:27.280
  • HOUSE WITH A BACKYARD.
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:29.240
  • - IT HELPS YOU BUILD A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:31.170

  • - ONCE I ENROLLED IN THIS PROCESS, IT BECAME THE
  • 00:11:46.230 --> 00:11:50.090
  • TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE. TODAY I'M ALSO
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:53.100
  • ADJUNCT PROFESSOR AT NEW YORK UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:55.290
  • - WORK ISN'T JUST ABOUT MONEY.
  • 00:11:56.010 --> 00:11:57.260
  • WORK IS ABOUT DIGNITY, AND FOR THE MEN THAT WE
  • 00:11:57.280 --> 00:12:02.190
  • SERVE, THEY HAVEN'T HAD A LOT IN THEIR LIVES
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:05.020
  • TO BE PROUD OF.
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:06.210
  • - I FINALLY FOUND MY LIFE.
  • 00:12:06.230 --> 00:12:08.190
  • I FINALLY FOUND A FUTURE.
  • 00:12:08.210 --> 00:12:09.280
  • I FINALLY FOUND MY CAREER.
  • 00:12:10.000 --> 00:12:12.040
  • - THAT'S THE POWER OF WORK.
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:13.130
  • PEOPLE GET HOOKED ON IT.
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:15.090
  • - READY WILLING AND ABLE IS MY FAMILY.
  • 00:12:15.110 --> 00:12:18.070
  • THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS TO ME.
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.140
  • - A RECENT SURVEY FROM PAY SCALE FOUND THAT
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.170
  • 46 PERCENT OF WORKERS, OR ROUGHLY 22 MILLION
  • 00:12:22.190 --> 00:12:25.080
  • AMERICANS, THINK THEY'RE UNDER EMPLOYED.
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:28.040
  • NOW UNDER EMPLOYED AMERICANS HARDEST HIT IS
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:30.250
  • THE MILLENNIAL WORKFORCE MADE UP OF 20 AND 30 YEAR
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:34.020
  • OLDS. TO UNDERSTAND THEIR CHALLENGES, WE TALKED
  • 00:12:34.040 --> 00:12:37.000
  • WITH JESSICA LUTZ WHO THROUGH THE INTERNET
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:39.240
  • HELPS UNDER EMPLOYED MILLENNIALS.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:42.050
  • - MY PODCAST IS CALLED OVERCOMING UNDER EMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:44.250
  • THIS EPISODE WILL BE ALL ABOUT DEALING WITH
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:47.070
  • RELATIONSHIPS WHEN YOU'RE UNDER EMPLOYED.
  • 00:12:47.090 --> 00:12:49.070
  • UNEMPLOYMENT IS YOU GO TO SCHOOL AND YOU GET A
  • 00:12:49.090 --> 00:12:51.220
  • DEGREE, AND YOU CAN'T FIND A JOB IN YOUR FIELD,
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:54.040
  • AND YOU END UP TAKING LESS MONEY AT A JOB
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:56.240
  • NOT GETTING AS MUCH AS YOU COULD HAVE
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.140
  • WITH YOUR CREDENTIALS.
  • 00:12:58.160 --> 00:13:00.170
  • DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF UNDER EMPLOYED?
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:02.230
  • - I DO YOU FEEL VERY UNDER EMPLOYED.
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:04.180
  • IT CAN BE REALLY DISCOURAGING WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:08.020
  • REALLY LIKE, YOU GET YOUR PAYCHECK AND THE COST OF
  • 00:13:08.040 --> 00:13:11.290
  • LIVING IS GOING UP AND SALARIES ARE NOT.
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:15.170
  • - WE HAD COLLEGE KIDS MOVING IN WITH THEIR
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:18.190
  • PARENTS, MOVING HOME, TRYING TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:21.290
  • THEY HAVE AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF DEBT.
  • 00:13:22.010 --> 00:13:26.050
  • - JESSICA LUTZ: PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING DIFFERENT
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:28.010
  • FACTORS IN THEIR UNDER EMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:13:28.030 --> 00:13:29.210
  • IT'S GENERALLY THE SAME SITUATION, JUST IT LOOKS
  • 00:13:29.230 --> 00:13:32.260
  • SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FOR EVERY PERSON.
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:34.240
  • TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND.
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:37.060
  • - I GOT MY BACHELOR'S IN COMMUNICATIONS FROM
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:40.140
  • TEMPLE UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:42.010
  • I WORKED IN A RESTAURANT RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE AS A
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:44.000
  • HOSTESS, BUT IT CERTAINLY WASN'T TAKING ADVANTAGE
  • 00:13:44.020 --> 00:13:48.030
  • OF THE DEGREE THAT I HAD JUST PAID FOR.
  • 00:13:48.050 --> 00:13:51.030
  • - THE HIGH COST OF COLLEGE AND THE LOW
  • 00:13:51.050 --> 00:13:52.260
  • PAYING JOBS FOR GRADUATES ARE CREATING STUDENT LOAN
  • 00:13:52.280 --> 00:13:55.190
  • DEFAULT RECORDS.
  • 00:13:55.210 --> 00:13:57.180
  • MORE THAN ONE MILLION STUDENT LOAN BORROWERS GO
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:14:00.020
  • INTO DEFAULT EACH YEAR.
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:02.070
  • STUDENT LOAN DEBT IS NOW THE SECOND HIGHEST
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:05.010
  • CONSUMER DEBT CATEGORY BEHIND ONLY MORTGAGE DEBT
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:08.190
  • AND HIGHER THAN BOTH CREDIT CARDS AND AUTO LOANS.
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:12.140
  • - THEY HAVE THIS DEBT.
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.000
  • I TALKED TO A YOUNG LADY, SHE HAD DEBT WHEN SHE
  • 00:14:14.020 --> 00:14:17.270
  • GRADUATED COLLEGE OF $45.000 DOLLARS.
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:21.170
  • SHE WAS DEFERRING IT, DEFERRING IT,
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:23.170
  • DEFERRING IT, DEFERRING IT.
  • 00:14:23.190 --> 00:14:25.230
  • SHE GOT A PRETTY GOOD JOB NOW.
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:28.040
  • HER COLLEGE DEBT IS $210.000 DOLLARS.
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:31.140
  • $210.000 DOLLARS.
  • 00:14:31.160 --> 00:14:33.160
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE DEFERRAL IS NOT A FREEZE.
  • 00:14:33.180 --> 00:14:37.210
  • THE DEFAULT ON TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS, TRILLIONS
  • 00:14:37.230 --> 00:14:40.260
  • WITH A "T" NOW ON STUDENT LOANS IS A CATASTROPHE
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:46.070
  • FOR AMERICA POSSIBLY WAITING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:49.220
  • - A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE DEBT RANGING FROM MAYBE
  • 00:14:49.240 --> 00:14:52.170
  • $20.000 DOLLARS A YEAR ALL THE WAY UP TO $100.000.
  • 00:14:52.190 --> 00:14:55.180
  • THE BIGGEST STRUGGLE WAS GRADUATING AND KNOWING
  • 00:14:55.200 --> 00:14:57.090
  • THAT YOUR STUDENT LOANS ARE GONNA COME DUE.
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:14:59.050
  • - UNDER EMPLOYMENT IS A BROAD TERM THAT GENERALLY
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:01.290
  • REFERS TO THREE TYPES OF WORKERS.
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:04.190
  • HIGH-SKILLED EMPLOYEES WITH LOW-SKILLED JOBS.
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:07.280
  • PART-TIME WORKERS WHO WANT FULL-TIME JOBS.
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:11.050
  • AND SKILLED WORKERS WITH LOW PAYING JOBS.
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:14.180
  • AND WHILE THESE WORKERS TECHNICALLY HAVE JOBS,
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:18.050
  • THEY DON'T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:20.100
  • AS MUCH AS THEY CAN TO SOCIETY.
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:22.250
  • BEFORE JESSICA LUTZ WAS HELPING OTHERS DEAL WITH
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:25.200
  • UNDER EMPLOYMENT, SHE HERSELF WAS ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:15:25.220 --> 00:15:30.070
  • - I ENDED UP GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL FOR
  • 00:15:30.090 --> 00:15:32.030
  • ACADEMIC ADVISING. IT'S A MASTER'S PROGRAM.
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:34.060
  • THE GOAL WAS TO GET A JOB IN ACADEMIC ADVISING.
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:36.200
  • - SHE WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:36.220 --> 00:15:37.270
  • SHE WANTED TO GO OUT AND HELP OTHER PEOPLE FIGURE
  • 00:15:37.290 --> 00:15:39.200
  • OUT WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:15:39.220 --> 00:15:41.150
  • AFTER SHE GOT HER DEGREE, WE BOTH HAD THE
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:43.170
  • EXCITEMENT OF HER FINDING HER FIRST REAL JOB.
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:45.260
  • - I WAS HOPING TO MAKE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN
  • 00:15:45.280 --> 00:15:48.080
  • $30-40.000 DOLLARS A YEAR.
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:52.090
  • I'D BEEN APPLYING TO JOBS AND I WASN'T GETTING
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:54.080
  • CALL BACKS. IT WAS A LITTLE FRIGHTENING.
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:57.270
  • - THE HARDEST PART WAS WATCHING HER LOSE
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:15:59.240
  • FAITH IN HERSELF.
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:01.070
  • - IT HAD BEEN THREE MONTHS AFTER I GRADUATED
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:04.020
  • FROM THE MASTER'S PROGRAM, I WAS LOOKING
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:06.020
  • FOR JOBS FRANTICALLY, AND MY STANDARDS HAD
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:08.290
  • GRADUALLY BEGUN TO GET LOWER AND LOWER.
  • 00:16:09.010 --> 00:16:11.120
  • I LITERALLY JUST NEED A JOB SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:13.140
  • AND I ENDED UP GETTING A JOB, BUT I WAS ONLY
  • 00:16:13.160 --> 00:16:15.280
  • WORKING FOR MINIMUM WAGE PART-TIME.
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:18.090
  • I DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY MY BILLS.
  • 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:20.110
  • FULL TIME MAKING MINIMUM WAGE, IT'S AROUND
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:23.000
  • $18.000 DOLLARS A YEAR.
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:25.240
  • STARTING OUT PART-TIME, MAYBE EVEN HALF OF THAT.
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:29.050
  • AT THE JOB IN RETAIL, I WAS WORKING THE CASH
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:32.130
  • REGISTER, I WAS STOCKING SHELVES, I WAS CHECKING
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:35.080
  • IN MERCHANDISE, I WAS PRICING THINGS.
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:37.240
  • A LOT OF VERY LOW LEVEL THINGS THAT A HIGH SCHOOL
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:41.010
  • STUDENT COULD DO. I FIGURED I WOULD JUST
  • 00:16:41.030 --> 00:16:45.140
  • BE IN THAT JOB FOR SIX MONTHS TOPS.
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:49.140
  • THAT'S WHAT I KEPT TELLING MYSELF.
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.120
  • AS TIME WENT ON AND I WASN'T MOVING ANYWHERE,
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:54.240
  • I WASN'T MAKING ANY PROGRESS, I WAS
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:56.210
  • EXPERIENCING DEPRESSION, ANXIETY.
  • 00:16:56.230 --> 00:17:00.210
  • I BECAME EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED WITH MY SITUATION.
  • 00:17:00.230 --> 00:17:04.190
  • I GOT REALLY INSECURE ABOUT MONEY BECAUSE EVERY
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:06.230
  • MONTH I WAS LOSING MONEY INSTEAD OF MAKING MONEY.
  • 00:17:06.250 --> 00:17:10.270
  • - SHE JUST WASN'T HER USUAL WARM SELF, JUST
  • 00:17:10.290 --> 00:17:12.270
  • BEING DOWN ON HERSELF, NOT REALLY WANTING TO
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:14.220
  • LEAVE THE HOUSE, NOT REALLY WANTING TO DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:17.110
  • IT WAS A GRADUAL KIND OF DECLINE TO JUST SEE HER
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:20.190
  • PULL BACK IN HER SHELL.
  • 00:17:20.210 --> 00:17:23.110
  • - I HAD STUDENT LOANS FROM GRADUATE SCHOOL
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:25.080
  • AND UNDERGRAD.
  • 00:17:25.100 --> 00:17:26.240
  • I WAS ON AN INCOME BASED REPAYMENT PLAN, AND THEY
  • 00:17:26.260 --> 00:17:28.170
  • ACTUALLY ASKED ME FOR ZERO DOLLARS A MONTH
  • 00:17:28.190 --> 00:17:31.040
  • BECAUSE I WAS MAKING SO LITTLE MONEY.
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:33.010
  • I KNEW THAT THE INTEREST WAS BUILDING UP, THE
  • 00:17:33.030 --> 00:17:35.110
  • LOANS WERE GETTING BIGGER EVERY MONTH AND
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:37.010
  • I WASN'T MAKING A DENT IN THEM AT ALL.
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:38.260
  • I ALWAYS HAD THAT FEAR OF RUNNING OUT OF MONEY.
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:41.100
  • - DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES.
  • 00:17:41.120 --> 00:17:45.290
  • JESSICA FOUND HER ROCK BOTTOM IN A BOOKSTORE
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:49.210
  • SEARCHING FOR DIRECTION.
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:51.220
  • - IT WAS SO INTENSE AND EMOTIONAL, AND I'M LIKE
  • 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:55.080
  • KIND OF HAVING A CRISIS OF SORTS.
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:58.070
  • I'M WANDERING AROUND. I DON'T LIKE MY LIFE.
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:18:01.140
  • I DON'T LIKE THE PERSON I'M BECOMING.
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:04.010
  • SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE.
  • 00:18:04.030 --> 00:18:07.000
  • SO I DECIDED TO START FOCUSING ON MYSELF INSTEAD
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:10.110
  • OF I NEED TO FIND A JOB, I NEED TO FIND A JOB.
  • 00:18:10.130 --> 00:18:12.140
  • I KIND OF WENT INWARD AT THAT POINT AND STARTED
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:15.040
  • FOCUSING WAY MORE ON MYSELF.
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:17.130
  • THAT WAS A REALLY PIVOTAL MOMENT FOR ME IN
  • 00:18:17.150 --> 00:18:19.250
  • THAT TRANSITION.
  • 00:18:19.270 --> 00:18:21.170
  • I WAS THINKING OKAY, I DON'T HAVE TO LOOK AT
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:23.030
  • REJECTION AS I'VE FAILED.
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:24.190
  • I'M FAILING.
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.000
  • I CAN LOOK AT THINGS IN A DIFFERENT WAY AND CHOOSE
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.190
  • TO LEARN FROM THEM INSTEAD OF JUST GOING TO
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:29.270
  • A DARK PLACE WITH IT.
  • 00:18:29.290 --> 00:18:31.230
  • - I WOULD SAY HER WELL BEING IMPROVED
  • 00:18:31.250 --> 00:18:34.000
  • PRETTY DRAMATICALLY.
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:35.170
  • SHE WAS EXCITED TO GET UP IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:37.090
  • SHE WAS PUTTING MORE EFFORT INTO BEING
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:39.040
  • HERSELF AGAIN.
  • 00:18:39.060 --> 00:18:40.270
  • - WITH JESSICA CARING FOR HERSELF WITHIN, SHE
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:44.020
  • BEGAN A JOB SEARCH WITH PASSION FOR A CAREER.
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:47.150
  • - MY LIFE TODAY IS A COMPLETE 180 FROM WHAT IT
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:50.130
  • WAS WHEN I FIRST GOT OUT OF SCHOOL.
  • 00:18:50.150 --> 00:18:52.130
  • I HAVE A JOB THAT I ACTUALLY REALLY LIKE.
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:54.110
  • IT'S DOING SOMETHING THAT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO.
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:56.170
  • THE POSITION I WORK IN NOW, I WORK IN A TRIO
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:59.110
  • STUDENT SPORT SERVICES PROGRAM.
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:01.140
  • SO WE HELP STUDENTS WHO NEED THAT EXTRA SUPPORT
  • 00:19:01.160 --> 00:19:03.160
  • WHEN THEY GET TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:19:03.180 --> 00:19:05.040
  • SO I GET TO WORK WITH STUDENTS ONE-ON-ONE.
  • 00:19:05.060 --> 00:19:07.040
  • I GET TO HELP THEM FROM THE TIME THEY GET TO
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:09.030
  • SCHOOL UNTIL THEY GRADUATE.
  • 00:19:09.050 --> 00:19:10.230
  • WORK NOW IS WONDERFUL.
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:13.190
  • I ACTUALLY LIKE GOING TO WORK.
  • 00:19:13.210 --> 00:19:15.000
  • MY LIFE IS A LOT MORE STABLE.
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:17.000
  • I'VE GOTTEN MARRIED SINCE THEN. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE.
  • 00:19:17.020 --> 00:19:20.240
  • - IN JESSICA'S NEW HOUSE IS SPACE FOR HER TO HELP
  • 00:19:20.260 --> 00:19:23.240
  • OTHER MILLENNIALS GETTING OUT OF UNDEREMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:27.160
  • - I REALLY JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:29.200
  • HELP MORE PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:31.110
  • UNDEREMPLOYMENT IS VERY REAL TO MILLENNIALS TODAY.
  • 00:19:31.130 --> 00:19:35.130
  • IT'S SUCH AN ISOLATING EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:19:35.150 --> 00:19:37.120
  • IT FEELS LIKE I'M DOING THIS ALONE.
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:39.070
  • SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH ME.
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:40.210
  • BUT IT TURNS OUT IT'S HAPPENING TO
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:41.290
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.100
  • IT'S NOT JUST YOU.
  • 00:19:43.120 --> 00:19:44.210
  • - ONE OF THE CHALLENGES TO FINDING YOUR CAREER
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:46.210
  • JOB IS TO GET THROUGH THE ONLINE
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:48.140
  • APPLICATION PROCESS.
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:50.240
  • - TODAY WE USE ALL OF THESE AUTOMATED SYSTEMS,
  • 00:19:50.260 --> 00:19:52.250
  • AND WE USE SOFTWARE AND IT PICKS OUT WORDS
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:55.270
  • FROM THE RESUMES.
  • 00:19:55.290 --> 00:19:57.220
  • SO IF YOU SOFTWARE DOESN'T LIKE YOU, BUT
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:20:00.020
  • YOU'RE QUALIFIED, IT WILL THROW YOUR APPLICATION
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:02.080
  • OUT, AND NO ONE WILL EVER ACTUALLY LOOK AT IT.
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:03.250
  • SO IT'S HARD TO BREAKTHROUGH THAT
  • 00:20:03.270 --> 00:20:05.130
  • AUTOMATED SYSTEM TO EVEN GET TO A HUMAN BEING TO
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:07.290
  • LOOK AT YOUR RESUME' OR YOUR APPLICATION
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:09.180
  • OR YOUR COVER LETTER.
  • 00:20:09.200 --> 00:20:10.260
  • YOU WOULD THINK THAT WE'VE GOTTEN PAST THE OLD
  • 00:20:10.280 --> 00:20:13.090
  • "PUT A WORD IN FOR ME", BUT IT REALLY IS STILL
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.130
  • THAT WAY IN A LOT OF INDUSTRIES WHERE YOU NEED
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:18.120
  • SOMEONE TO SAY, HEY, I HEARD THIS PERSON I
  • 00:20:18.140 --> 00:20:20.200
  • KNOW APPLIED FOR THIS POSITION.
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:22.130
  • KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THEIR APPLICATION.
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:24.060
  • IT REALLY DOES HELP A LOT MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:31.020
  • - ANOTHER DEMOGRAPHIC HARD HIT WITH
  • 00:20:31.040 --> 00:20:32.270
  • UNDEREMPLOYMENT IS THE OLDER WORK FORCE.
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:35.240
  • DURING THE GREAT RECESSION, YOUNGER AND
  • 00:20:35.260 --> 00:20:38.030
  • CHEAPER WORKERS REPLACED THESE OLDER MEN AND WOMEN.
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:40.190
  • TO SURVIVE, OLDER WORKERS TOOK LOWER PAYING JOBS.
  • 00:20:40.210 --> 00:20:46.030
  • - WHEN YOU ARE 50 YEARS OR OLDER, THE
  • 00:20:46.050 --> 00:20:49.030
  • UNDEREMPLOYMENT PROBLEM IS PROBABLY GREATER THAN
  • 00:20:49.050 --> 00:20:51.250
  • ONE WOULD THIS.
  • 00:20:51.270 --> 00:20:53.120
  • CORPORATIONS ARE UNFORTUNATELY LOOKING AT
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:55.140
  • THE BOTTOM LINE.
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:57.030
  • SO IF THEY CAN HERE SOMEONE THAT IS AT HALF
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.280
  • PRICE AND YOUNGER, THEY'RE GOING TO HERE
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:01.140
  • THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:01.170 --> 00:21:03.020
  • - MANY OLDER AMERICANS ARE STILL FEELING THE JOB
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:06.090
  • CHALLENGES TEN YEARS AFTER THE
  • 00:21:06.110 --> 00:21:08.010
  • GREAT RECESSION BEGAN.
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:09.230
  • - THAT 2008 RECESSION WAS DEVASTATING
  • 00:21:09.250 --> 00:21:12.150
  • FOR OLDER WORKERS.
  • 00:21:12.170 --> 00:21:15.280
  • - MARCH OF 2009 WAS THE DEAD BOTTOM OF THE STOCK
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:18.110
  • MARKET, AND THAT'S WHEN THEY WERE GOING TO ALL
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:20.230
  • MAJOR COMPANIES, AND THEY WERE CUTTING 10%
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:22.260
  • ACROSS-THE-BOARD.
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:25.070
  • THE REASON WHY UNDEREMPLOYMENT HASN'T
  • 00:21:25.090 --> 00:21:27.160
  • IMPROVED SINCE 2009, CORPORATIONS WANT
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:30.080
  • TO MAKE MORE MONEY.
  • 00:21:30.100 --> 00:21:31.260
  • - DAN SATO WORKED FOR A COMPANY THAT WAS DOWN
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:33.240
  • SIZED IN 2009.
  • 00:21:33.260 --> 00:21:36.000
  • HIS JOURNEY FROM FULLY EMPLOYED TO UNEMPLOYMENT
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:38.290
  • TO UNDEREMPLOYMENT IS STILL A REALITY.
  • 00:21:39.010 --> 00:21:42.090
  • - FROM 1984 TO 2009 WORKING FOR A CONSUMER
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:47.040
  • ELECTRONICS COMPANY IN THE SALES AND MARKETING
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.050
  • AREA, I WAS AT THE COMPANY 25 YEARS.
  • 00:21:49.070 --> 00:21:52.040
  • ACTUALLY DID THINK THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO RETIRE
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:54.180
  • THERE, SO I WAS ACTUALLY LAID OFF -- SO IT'S
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:57.010
  • LOOKING AT A PROBLEM AND TURNING IT
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:22:00.160
  • INTO AN OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:02.170
  • - SEARCHING FOR A JOB TODAY IS MUCH DIFFERENT
  • 00:22:02.190 --> 00:22:04.110
  • THAN IN THE 1980S.
  • 00:22:04.130 --> 00:22:07.010
  • DAN SHARES SOME TIPS HE HAS LEARNED.
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:10.090
  • - I DID THE NORMAL THING.
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:11.240
  • I LOOKED AT MY RESUME, REVISED IT, BUT IT HADN'T
  • 00:22:11.260 --> 00:22:14.140
  • BEEN REVISED IN 25 YEARS, SO THAT'S A LEARNING
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:17.000
  • EXPERIENCE, AND I LEARNED REAL QUICK.
  • 00:22:17.020 --> 00:22:19.200
  • NUMBER ONE IS NO ONE'S GOING TO LOOK AT YOUR
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:21.130
  • RESUME', IT'S GOING TO BE SCANNED.
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:23.150
  • SO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RESUME' IS SUCH
  • 00:22:23.170 --> 00:22:26.100
  • THAT IT HAS ALL THE KEYWORDS, SO THAT'S
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:28.020
  • NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:29.190
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE KEYWORDS.
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:31.030
  • YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:32.130
  • THE SYSTEM WORKS.
  • 00:22:32.150 --> 00:22:34.020
  • YOU LOOK AT THE JOB REQUIREMENTS, AND YOU PUT
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:37.180
  • THOSE SAME KEYWORDS IN YOUR RESUME'.
  • 00:22:37.200 --> 00:22:40.140
  • SO WHEN THEY DO THE SCAN, THEY LOOK AT THE JOB
  • 00:22:40.160 --> 00:22:43.010
  • DESCRIPTION, IT MATCHES YOUR RESUME'.
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:45.190
  • NUMBER TWO TO FIND THE JOB, YOU NEED TO POST
  • 00:22:45.210 --> 00:22:50.170
  • YOUR RESUME' ONLINE, AND WHEN YOU POST IT ONLINE,
  • 00:22:50.190 --> 00:22:54.130
  • YOU JUST DON'T DO IT ONCE.
  • 00:22:54.150 --> 00:22:56.120
  • YOU HAVE TO UPDATE IT EVERY WEEK.
  • 00:22:56.140 --> 00:22:58.280
  • YOU UPLOAD IT SO YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'RE NEW
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:01.070
  • MERCHANDISE ON THE MARKET.
  • 00:23:01.090 --> 00:23:03.000
  • I HAD TO PUT OUT MORE THAN A COUPLE HUNDRED RESUMES.
  • 00:23:03.020 --> 00:23:06.100
  • IN FACT, IT'S ALMOST LIKE A SALES JOB.
  • 00:23:06.120 --> 00:23:08.230
  • FOR EVERY HUNDRED JOBS THAT YOU APPLY FOR, ONLY
  • 00:23:08.250 --> 00:23:12.120
  • ONE WILL GIVE YOU AN INTERVIEW.
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:14.270
  • BUT THAT ONE INTERVIEW IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:23:14.290 --> 00:23:17.020
  • GET YOU THE JOB.
  • 00:23:17.040 --> 00:23:18.180
  • YOU NEED LIKE TEN INTERVIEWS.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:20.010
  • SO DURING THE LAST TEN YEARS WHERE I WAS
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:22.020
  • UNDEREMPLOYED AND TAKING CONTRACT JOBS, I WOULD
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:24.170
  • SAY I SENT OUT 800 TO 1.000 LETTERS.
  • 00:23:24.190 --> 00:23:31.020
  • - A BRIGHT SPOT FOR DAN TO GET OUT OF
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:32.270
  • UNEMPLOYMENT WAS TAKING CONTRACT LABOR JOBS.
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:35.270
  • - CONTRACT WORK LET'S YOU GET EXPOSURE TO
  • 00:23:35.290 --> 00:23:39.120
  • DIFFERENT COMPANIES.
  • 00:23:39.140 --> 00:23:41.020
  • SO I'VE BEEN IN THE INSURANCE BUSINESS AREA,
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:43.200
  • THE WIRELESS INDUSTRY AREA, THE LIGHTING AREA,
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:46.140
  • THE SECURITY BUSINESS AREA.
  • 00:23:46.160 --> 00:23:49.010
  • SO IT ALLOWS ME TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES
  • 00:23:49.030 --> 00:23:51.260
  • BUT USE MY COMMON SKILL SETS FOR THOSE
  • 00:23:51.280 --> 00:23:54.010
  • DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES.
  • 00:23:54.030 --> 00:23:55.260
  • IN REGARDS TO THE SALARY OR THE HOURLY WAGE,
  • 00:23:55.280 --> 00:24:00.020
  • USUALLY IT'S COMPARABLE -- IF YOU WORK 40 HOURS,
  • 00:24:00.040 --> 00:24:03.260
  • IT'S COMPARABLE TO WHAT I WAS MAKING PREVIOUSLY.
  • 00:24:03.280 --> 00:24:07.030
  • BUT UNFORTUNATELY, CONTRACT WORK IS SPORADIC.
  • 00:24:07.050 --> 00:24:10.060
  • IT COULD BE SIX MONTHS, EIGHT MONTHS, TEN MONTHS,
  • 00:24:10.080 --> 00:24:12.220
  • 12 MONTHS, 24 MONTHS.
  • 00:24:12.240 --> 00:24:14.250
  • SO THERE'S SOME DOWN TIME.
  • 00:24:14.270 --> 00:24:16.220
  • SO ACTUALLY, WHEN YOU CALCULATE EVERYTHING OUT,
  • 00:24:16.240 --> 00:24:19.200
  • IT'S BASICALLY YOU'RE WORKING FOR HALF THE PRICE.
  • 00:24:19.220 --> 00:24:22.090
  • - FOR THOSE THAT ARE OVER 50 YEARS OLD STILL
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:25.020
  • STUCK IN UNEMPLOYMENT OR UNDEREMPLOYMENT, THERE IS
  • 00:24:25.040 --> 00:24:28.080
  • STILL HOPE ON THE HORIZON.
  • 00:24:28.100 --> 00:24:31.020
  • - THE OLDER GENERATION IS CATCHING A BREAK RIGHT
  • 00:24:31.040 --> 00:24:33.230
  • NOW BECAUSE THE 50 YEAR-OLD AND UP IS A VERY
  • 00:24:33.250 --> 00:24:36.260
  • DESIRABLE EMPLOYEE.
  • 00:24:36.280 --> 00:24:39.030
  • I TALK TO MORE AND MORE CEO'S EVERY DAY THAT ARE
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:41.270
  • SAYING, WE NEED SOMEBODY THAT UNDERSTANDS WHAT
  • 00:24:41.290 --> 00:24:45.080
  • BUSINESS IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:24:45.100 --> 00:24:47.010
  • - FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE 50 AND OVER THAT ARE
  • 00:24:47.030 --> 00:24:49.210
  • UNDEREMPLOYED, THE WAY TO DIG THEM OUT IS ACTUALLY
  • 00:24:49.230 --> 00:24:52.190
  • SIMPLY MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:24:52.210 --> 00:24:55.000
  • ACTIVITY, ACTIVITY, ACTIVITY.
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:57.080
  • IT SOUNDS LIKE A SALES JOB, BUT BASICALLY YOU
  • 00:24:57.100 --> 00:24:59.180
  • WAKE UP AT 7 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING, HOP ON THE
  • 00:24:59.200 --> 00:25:02.160
  • COMPUTER AND START APPLYING FOR JOBS, AND
  • 00:25:02.180 --> 00:25:05.290
  • YOU KEEP ON DOING THAT.
  • 00:25:06.010 --> 00:25:07.210
  • YOU TURN OUT MAYBE 10 OR 15 EVERY DAY.
  • 00:25:07.230 --> 00:25:11.160
  • - TO THOSE OLDER FOLKS, MY HOPE WOULD BE THAT
  • 00:25:11.180 --> 00:25:17.230
  • THEY WOULD GET RE-ENGAGED, BECOME
  • 00:25:17.250 --> 00:25:21.290
  • INVIGORATED ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS ECONOMY.
  • 00:25:22.010 --> 00:25:24.120
  • I WOULD SUGGEST TO THEM NOW TO GO BACK AND GIVE
  • 00:25:24.140 --> 00:25:26.120
  • IT ANOTHER SHOT.
  • 00:25:26.140 --> 00:25:29.030
  • I THINK THEY MAY BE SURPRISED.
  • 00:25:29.050 --> 00:25:30.270
  • - WE NEED THOSE PEOPLE TO START COMING BACK INTO
  • 00:25:30.290 --> 00:25:32.130
  • THE WORK FORCE.
  • 00:25:32.150 --> 00:25:33.290
  • - I HAVE HOPE, AND THE REASON WHY I HAVE HOPE IS
  • 00:25:34.010 --> 00:25:36.120
  • BECAUSE I HAVE FAITH THAT SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN FOR
  • 00:25:36.140 --> 00:25:39.220
  • THOSE INDIVIDUALS, BUT THERE'S A SAYING "THOSE
  • 00:25:39.240 --> 00:25:42.020
  • PEOPLE THAT PRAY AND DO NOTHING, IT'S JUST A DREAM.
  • 00:25:42.040 --> 00:25:45.270
  • TO PRAY AND TAKE ACTION, SOMETHING WILL DEFINITELY
  • 00:25:45.290 --> 00:25:49.260
  • HAPPEN GUARANTEED."
  • 00:25:49.280 --> 00:25:52.180
  • - GETTING PAST BEING UNEMPLOYED OR UNDEREMPLOYED IS
  • 00:25:52.200 --> 00:25:55.210
  • NOT ALWAYS EASY.
  • 00:25:55.230 --> 00:25:57.200
  • HOWEVER, THERE IS HOPE IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:25:57.220 --> 00:26:01.170
  • - A JOB HELPS TO FIND A PERSON'S PLACE IN
  • 00:26:01.190 --> 00:26:04.240
  • SOCIETY, AND PRODUCTIVE WORK HAS LONG BEEN
  • 00:26:04.260 --> 00:26:07.030
  • UNDERSTOOD AS ONE OF THE KEY ELEMENTS FOR
  • 00:26:07.050 --> 00:26:09.000
  • A HAPPY LIFE.
  • 00:26:09.020 --> 00:26:10.250
  • PERSISTENT UNEMPLOYMENT OR UNDEREMPLOYMENT CAN
  • 00:26:10.270 --> 00:26:13.030
  • LEAD TO ILLNESS, MARITAL STRIFE,
  • 00:26:13.050 --> 00:26:15.020
  • INSECURITY AND DEPRESSION.
  • 00:26:15.040 --> 00:26:17.090
  • UNDEREMPLOYED HOMELESS AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN
  • 00:26:17.110 --> 00:26:21.040
  • IN PRISON STRUGGLE TO ATTAIN A RELIABLE SOURCE
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:23.030
  • OF INCOME.
  • 00:26:23.050 --> 00:26:24.280
  • BEING ABLE TO PAY ONE'S BILLS, PROVIDE FOR ONE'S
  • 00:26:25.000 --> 00:26:27.030
  • FAMILY AND CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY ARE ESSENTIAL
  • 00:26:27.050 --> 00:26:29.260
  • FACTORS IN MAINTAINING A POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON LIFE.
  • 00:26:29.280 --> 00:26:32.220
  • THERE ARE STILL OVER SIX MILLION PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED
  • 00:26:32.240 --> 00:26:37.210
  • IN THIS COUNTRY, AND SADLY, THE UNDEREMPLOYED RATE IS
  • 00:26:37.230 --> 00:26:40.000
  • DOUBLE THAT NUMBER.
  • 00:26:40.020 --> 00:26:41.240
  • FINDING EMPLOYMENT CAN SEEM LIKE A DAUNTING TASK.
  • 00:26:41.260 --> 00:26:44.160
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE ARE MANY ONLINE RESOURCES
  • 00:26:44.180 --> 00:26:47.200
  • THAT PROVIDE TRAINING AND HELP WITH THE NECESSARY
  • 00:26:47.220 --> 00:26:50.070
