Being unemployed sucks. It happened to me when I was 23 and 30. In this economy the official number is around 7.8%, but the real unemployment number (people actively looking for work, the underemployed, AND discouraged workers who have given up searching) is more than double that number. Unfortunately, Balaram Stack can now be included in that number. We reported
that Stack was cut by Quiksilver two months ago. Now Surfer Magazine has an interview with Stack here
where he explains how it happened, and what his current plans are. Keep your head up Balaram, New Yorkers are tougher than anyone else out there. If any of our readers is hiring, check out his video resume below.
