Re “We may be bruised, but we’re better off than we were” by Jim Miara (Letters, Sept. 10): Better off? Seriously? I don’t think so.
Those who think we’re better off today than we were four years ago must not have to worry going into work every day, wondering whether they are going to lose their job. They must not have to worry about how would they would pay their mortgage if they do lose their job.
They must be one of the fortunate folks who only do the work of ONE individual instead of two or more because there’s no funding available for another new hire after a co-worker left.
Miara views the economic collapse of 2008 as a “rogue wave” that no one would want to ride again. But I am thinking that that wave may have tossed him around a bit too much, because he certainly does not speak for me.
