Context: Transition of a worker back to the job market
Jamie had spent more than half of his life in that textile factory and seeing it get closed and all his friends let go had a huge impact on him. He felt very isolated, depressed and insecure for a while. But high life expenses pressured him to put himself together and start looking for a new job.
His daughters are helping him to write up a resume, and he is handing them out to all the local stores, factories, and businesses. He feels that he is already too old for many jobs and also his lack of experience with computers doesn’t help his situation. Last week, he had an interview for a cashier position. Even Though he was wearing his glasses, he couldn’t see the register’s screen and had to get close to it, and had to spend so much time finding the right keys on the keyboard. He sees many obstacles on his path to start over.
