I think that amongst my circle of good engineer* friends and
acquaintances, someone has been out of work and having trouble finding
any for *all* of the last ten years, so I am unmoved by their plight.
And "not able to find any work" usually means "not able to find any work
that I like and that pays lots of money", so I am moved even less.

sysadmins and net-wookies are engineers
