Jobless and Stressed but Holding Out Hope

THURSDAY, Aug. 19 (HealthDay News)-- There were no smiles on the faces at the WorkSource Center office in Salem, Ore.

The people waiting on line for help from the Oregon Employment Department were drawn and tense. One person who jumped the line received a lecture from a middle-aged woman, who leaned in close and whispered angrily. "You have to be careful," the woman said.

Pamela Austin, 25, said she had been out of work for a little more than a year. She was doing office work for a metal roofing and siding company, but, when orders dropped, much of the company's workforce was let go. She was at the office to have someone go over her resume.

"I've been working ever since I was 14," Austin said. "It's never been this hard to get a job."

Austin, who's single and has no children, said she worries a lot about paying bills. And she has trouble sleeping. "Your mind, all night you're constantly stressing over what's going to happen," she said. "How am I going to get a job? If I get one, will they have to lay me off next?"

She recently came close to getting a job. There w
