Guys with your dad's background (I have his resume) are hurtin', their line of work (specifically in his area of expertise) is gone, and isn't EVER going to come back in numbers. His only choice would be heavy truck or aerospace. It's sad.

I think if more people didnt have the unemployment security blanket a lot of them would get off their ass and FIND work, not just look for what they have always done.

I am behind that asshole 100% even if he is doing it for the wrong reason.
