    Unemployed, Now What?


    I was laid off from a Federally funded agency this past March. A cutback in funding necessitated the layoff. I have been paying the bills mostly because I qualified for unemployment compensation....the first time I have ever had to do so! I guess I can thank Paul Ryan? Things will be bleak at best, now, ironically just a few days after my daughter found out that she has been accepted into the Chemical Engineering Department at CMU. Now, though, there is no way to pay for her education, and I do not know what to do.
