Welcome to the real world. Michigan's real world at least.
My Little Brother (all of 18 months younger than his gray haired old Big Sis) is being downsized today. I think this is his first time on unemployment. Unbelievable in Michigan. Although he was fortunate to work for the county's largest employer. Again it is a tale of the family company being sold to foreign conglomerates who wanted the company name. And then sold again, and again, always to foreign companies.
I never did quite figure out how a baby food company could be attractive to a chemical/pharmaceutical company, but I digress.
So anyway, Little Bro is going the growing ranks of Michigan's unemployed.
I guess when the campaign promised we would have change, what they really meant was--that would be all we would have in our pockets.
