At different stages in our lives we move into and out of employment situations. We may work part time, full time, or sporadically. We may be self employed. We may stop out to care for children, aging parents, or disabled family members – or go through personal health challenges. We may go to school. We may go to jail. We may quit, be laid off, or fired.
