claudio portrait
»Much has changed for me. I've lost the power to fight and you must always fight and sacrifice yourself to achieve something. For the last two or three years I am feeling this and it will get even worse.
I am frustrated, feel restless and become stingy. I can no longer afford the things I would like to have, as I must save money for the future.
The news on TV turns me indifferent and destroy my empathy.
I don't know who exactly is responsible for the crisis, though in the end we are all jointly responsible. Many people in the middle and upper social class earn a lot of money without any effort and spend it on useless things. For example, football players are getting insane salaries only because they move a ball, this is incomprehensible to me. I don't trust the politicians and am very uncertain, how things will continue.
I previously worked as a locksmith, but I was made redundant as a result of the crisis. I'm looking for a job now, but there is nothing. I would love to have a good income to live reasonably.«
