Joblessness And Hopelessness: The Link Between Unemployment And Suicide

Post by Guest on Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:19 pm

The researchers found the most prominent correlation between economic cycles and suicide among people ages 25 to 64 – or those most likely to be working or needing to work. The current economic downturn has been particularly hard on America’s workers, as millions of Americans have found themselves unemployed, sometimes for very long periods of time.

For any new members who haven't seen this yet, here is "Mark's" story, a member of UFF1. There was also another member, "Al" who took his life last July after giving up all hope. RIP, Al and Mark.

So sickening. God Bless them. Sad part is the government could not care less. They won't be the last ones if something doesn't turn around in this country. Crying or Very sad

Joblessness And Hopelessness: The Link Between Unemployment And Suicide

Gerry DePietro, who says she lost her job as an accountant in 2008, became one of a cadre of long-term unemployed who share their troubles with others online. DePietro, who is in her mid 60s and lives in Norristown, Pa., says she got a job this week after 30 months of unemployment. She's no longer one of the "99ers" -- people who've exhausted all 99 weeks of their unemployment benefits without finding work -- but she says she'll continue to be an advocate for their cause.

"You wonder why I am so passionate about my fight for the 99ers?" wrote DePietro in a February email, one of dozens she's sent to reporters and Congressional staffers. "I just received word of YET ANOTHER 99ER WHO TOOK HIS OWN LIFE! A young father with a wife and 2 young children! THE SUICIDE RATE IS HIGH, BUT YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT THAT."

Mrs. DePietro's story was told on The Ed Show in February on the day HR 589 was introduced. In the segment, "Damn you Republicans, you have no heart and you have no soul", Ed speaks about Mrs. D's plight and the tough decision she had to make to sell her wedding rings after the death of her husband. This was a very passionate speech by Ed, and worth watching:
