Thanks to our free trade agreements I was laid off in 2007 from the hosiery industry. I had worked at the same mill for over 24 years and was making a good wage. Since being laid off I retrained by earning a degree in Digital Effects and Animation. I found work, but got laid off again a year later. I am now back in school studying Web design. I would simply like to have a job that will allow me to keep my current home and live comfortably. To have free time to enjoy doing things other than working or going to school.
