The Casino layoffs helped tremendously in creating the now almost 4,000 properties in Atlantic County in some stage of foreclosure. There may have been some vacant properties before the layoffs, however coupled with low wage jobs the home market in Atlantic County has been hit by the Foreclosure Bomb.
Job markets are opening up and some people are getting back to work but not enough and not enough higher wage earners. Now you can also do what my best friend’s baby sister did. She’s been looking for a job for a while and couldn’t find what she really wanted and would offer her a better salary. She decided she wanted to learn how to drive the big rigs and that’s what she did. She found a training program through unemployment. It only lasted 4 weeks before a snafu and the program ended. However, she didn’t give up and found another program where she could finish her training and now she is on the roads making very good money. She just changed her life and her quality of life. She now has a skill that will always keep her employed at a great salary. This is what happens when you don’t give up. Persistence Pays Off!
