the problem with the people caught in the unemployment trap is the layoffs of this recession hasn't hit enough people for the majority of people to actually understand the depth of the problem.<quoted text>
I have been looking for work since January, I quit a job because I got a better paying one and after two weeks they let me go. I know I shouldn't have quit that job, but even though I am highly educated made over $35,000 a year I can not even get hired at Wendy's or McDonalds they think I am either too old or way overqualifed. So those of you that think some people on unemployment are just lazy you are wrong. I have a stack of over 200 resumes I have sent out just since January and have filled out over 200 applications at grocery stores, fast food chains, etc. SO SCREW YOU!!!!
for most people, some prices have gotten a little higher, some taxes have gotten a little higher and they have had to listen to more negitive news than they want to hear....but, other than that they haven't really been effected.
so, they don't care and don't believe there is much of a problem.
americans have reached a point that 23 - 25 million people are without an income and that doesn't count in their families, is not a problem as long as they still have their income and tickets to the next football game.
that's exactly the reason this country will never recover the ground it has lost.......10% unemployment will become an acceptable level of unemployment and higher if obama and congress allows illegals to become legal.
