You Will Overcome by Amanda Butler

Local Author helps others to master their fears about the economy & careers so they can achieve success & happiness with new book – You Will Overcome 

Unemployment rates have only slightly dropped in the last couple of months in Michigan and fears continue to increase while hope decreases. According to 19 Aug 2010 article, David Resler, senior economist at Nomura Securities in New York states, "We've had increases (in jobless claims) the last couple of weeks, when most of us thought they would be decreasing. The number of people claiming benefits is now disturbingly high. For those who doubted it will be a long, drawn-out period, they can't doubt it anymore." 

"In a way, the perpetual fear of unemployment can be worse than actually losing a job", says Sarah A. Burgard, associate professor of sociology at University of Michigan in article. "With job loss, the worst is over and you can cope, but for many people, the anticipation of a negative event is worse than the event itself. It has measurable impact on people's psychological well-being."

With hundreds of thousands of men and women across the country having fears about losing their jobs or having lost it, most are concerned for their financial well-being while battling anxiety, depression and inertia. Fear of being thrown out of work is so widespread that equal percentages of higher- and lower-income workers, 47%, worry about losing their jobs. Nearly 71%, say they know someone – a friend or a relative – who has lost a job in the past six months, according to AP-GfK 2009 poll.
