Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.
It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Whyyyyyyyy do I suspect I’ll be hearing that more than once in the next couple of months, DESPITE checking doc’s names on Humana’s website before buying in, AND reading on the doctors’ websites that they take Humana POS? POS indeed, as I’ve been saying for years.
Time to ask the facebooks for a new gyno recommendation! Yay. At least I can run my own damn lab tests.
- my ring from D, my key from S, my kickass superhero knitted cuffs from K - and scream “You have no power over me” into the wind, maybe I’ll be okay
