State we are in
I would like to comment on Ms Terry Healy's letter ('State we are in', Irish Independent, February 4). I totally agree with everything she said.
I am a 48-year-old woman, working since I was 13, paying tax and PRSI all of my life. I have recently found myself out of work and have been searching websites and newspapers for the past three months, but to no avail.
The other day, I received a letter from the Department of Social Protection, urging me to attend a course to brush up on my job-seeking skills.
