I don’t think its fair, the way you guys focused on people living in poverty with the safelink phone systems available to us.
I work a day job and my annual earnings are less than 16,000.00 a year. I applied for one of these phones, and no I’m not on welfare.
I’ve been looking for a second job to go with my day job, but there are none out there.
Every time a large cooperation lays off hundreds or thousands of people, the unemployment lines get longer and the chances of people like me getting a second job becomes more and more difficult, as such jobs are quickly taken by people that are totally unemployed.
I’d love to have a forty hour job sitting in a television studio making fun of poverty, but then I don’t think I’m strong enough to poke fun at poor people.
Picture yourselves in our shoes without the job you have.
Making less than 16,000.00 a year, no benefits, no health insurance, living in an apartment with limited heat, driving a rusted out 16 year old vehicle.
I don’t think this was fair or considerate at all.
I’ll tell you something else. Where would you be without the poverty employees that surround you? The guy that bags your groceries, the woman that takes your order at a burger place, the car wash employee that vacuums out your car, or the janitor that cleans the bathrooms you use at work.
Poverty doesn’t always carry the label ‘WELFARE’, most of us have jobs we can’t live off of without some sort of help.
I’m not mad.
I feel good, because of the way you made yourselves look on television. It’s your faces that are on television when you degrade or attack innocent people for no reason at all.
Why don’t you go down to Wisconsin Avenue and take a shopping cart away from a homeless person. That’s the direction you’re headed with your station.
Have a nice day.
