AN UNCERTAIN SOUND (MIDDLETOWN, OH 61-0315)
There’s no certainty in national security any more, because you can’t dig far enough under the earth to keep them from blowing you out. You can’t–there’s nothing to do. We’re just at the end of the road. And we take then and some of the other things there’s no certainty.
I was hearing on the newscast coming up here, that there’s more jobless people now than there was during the time of–of President Hoover’s depression time, more jobless people than there was during his administration and during the time of 1930, along in there. Many of us of that age, remembers it, when we’d eat little bit–bit of potatoes with little jackets on them and eat jacket and all, because just got them once in a while and have them breakfast, dinner, and supper–how hard it was. And now, because they can say that, there’s almost a third more people in the United States than there was then.
THE UNCERTAIN SOUND (BLOOMINGTON, IL 61-0415E)
So there we have no–no sound of security in national defense. Our jobs, we have no security in our–our jobs. It’s all uncertain. Let a man pass about thirty-five years old, they’ll root you out. They’ll get a young man so they won’t have to retire you. And after you pass forty years old, you try to get a job even digging a ditch; you’ll have to have a high school diploma before you can do it. And they’ve got a little button they can press, and then take care of that anyhow. Your jobs–you ain’t got no security in your jobs. I don’t know how true this is, but I’ve been told that there’s more people out of work right now, than there was during the time of President Hoover’s depression, because there’s more people. What’s the matter? It’s just a place where there’s no certainty in these things. You’re not certain of your job. Somebody can take your place in the morning.
