Robbing Retirement to Pay the Mortgage detail 2

Inspiration: Robbing Peter to Pay Paul
It’s a scary economic world these days. Job loss, foreclosure and bankruptcy are worrying citizens who have worked and paid their bills on time for the first time in their lives.
The heavy black line is the Dow Jones Average from April, 2008 through February, 2009. Note the big dip in late September. Actual headlines were transferred onto the fabric using printable t-shirt transfer material. All headlines are from The Alexandria (LA) Daily Town Talk, where my husband was employed from May, 1977 until his position was eliminated in December, 2008.
