The impact of the general strike close to home

January 14, 2003

From my brother the Tyromaniac the impact and reality of the general strike hits very close to home:

It’s official: I’m unemployed. It is the first time in my life, or at least the first time since 1981 (when I was 19) that I do not have something to do and a stable income… I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I could go back to being a researcher in Math. I could try to do consulting, or I could just try to get another job (preferably outside Venezuela)… It’s going to be tough, but I guess the first thing is not to despair. I would dedicate a couple of weeks to talking with people to see what options they see for me… I’ll keep you posted…
