One man I know was laid-off in mid November and has nothing saved. I don't know how long he can get unemployment, $252.00 a week, but he told me that when that is gone, he is done. He has already stopped paying his credit card and TV cable. Next will be his utilities and phone, then rent $450.00 a month. I don't know what he can do and I'm not in a position to help him. I wish I could tell him something that would help. He isn't really a friend, I just know him.
