My husband lost his job....what should we do, where should we start?

He was making $15 an hour as a Sales/Service Writer for an automotive company. Well, they let everyone go and are hiring people in at $8.00 an hour and part time so they don't have to give them benefits, so they fired my husband. It's terrible, I know, but we have to move on and don't have the time/money to get a lawyer and fight it. No union. ANYWAY, my husband has 45 credit hours towards an associates in Criminal Justice and has mostly retail management experience (which he hated). He's like to get into something to do with the law, but does not want to be a cop. He'll have to find another job asap. Any suggestions? PS- We live in Michigan....the state with the WORST economy and job market in the country!!

I've heard how bad the unemployment is in Michigan, sorry to hear it. For starters, he should go to the unemployment office and start collecting some money while he looks for a job. I know Michigan's a big state, but would it be possible to try to find a job in one of the automotive factories up there? Those people... More
