This story out of Massachusetts is a bad omen. It seems that the number of homeless families there has increased dramatically in the wake of the economic downturn. There are so many homeless families that the state is forced to put them in motels because the shelters are filled to capacity.
As a somebody who is looking for a full-time job, I can relate to what these people are going through. I am worried that the economy will take another nose dive and the $700 billion bailout package will not be sufficient. But I also hope things will turn around soon. We'll see.
