financial stability = a building block

A struggling economy has taught us all some valuable lessons. Whether or not our neighbors have jobs that can support their families matters — to all of us. A stable Income is one of the building blocks to a good quality of life. When more people are gainfully employed, the brighter our economic outlook will be.
