Quote of the day: unemployment and the loss of dignity

Unemployment is not only the loss of a job. It is the loss of dignity. A loss of the present and, over time, the ability to imagine a future.

We build our lives in this looming loss, because what else can we do? We build our lives, and hope their disposability is not confirmed.
