Regarding the American 99ers's Union - Changes in the works!

Post by Guest on Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:47 pm

As some of you may have noticed, the American 99er's Union's website is down. I received this email from Gregg Rosen, President, a short time ago:

Good Afternoon ****,

The American 99ers Union website is in the midst of upgrades that will provide a greater feature rich and easy to navigate experience.

We are also be adding new members to the site. While our primary focus shall always remain on the longest-termed unemployed, we have made the business decision to expand our focus to include greater emphasis on the rebuilding and state of the U.S. Economy. This lateral growth will allow the American 99ers Union to create new strategic relationships with organizations, who have in the past not included the long-term unemployed as part of their agenda.

The hope is the that site should be up within the next 48 to 72 hours (our new web design team is working at a fever pitch). Any critical updates will be posted via twitter (Amer99ersUnion) or the American 99ers Union on Facebook.

Regards,
Gregg S. Rosen, CPNLP
President/Co-Founder

I am not sure what to make of it. I actually always thought he was doing it as a business to be honest. But he does say that the primary emphasis will be on the longest term unemployed (I am guessing 99ers). I guess we wait and see. In the meantime, we continue our fight.

Our president and member/leader has always insisted upon using this verbage and conducting the site and its main premise/vision as a business.

If happen to listen to him speak, or if already have, you likely would realize this of course, and it is what it is, we are in a time where we have to be professional and a business, non-profit or whatever, we are in this systemic process together advocating, adjoining coalitions, selling ourselves, educating, etc.. in our quest to gain attention all way up governmental chain.

I think the premise of attempting to adjoin forces in WORKING WITH people, like the governmental leaders, colleagues in various fields etc... allows us to properly conduct and operate as a business, not to mention all the volunteer time it takes for many to assist in our efforts, and in helping establish a more credible and reliable organization, hence the terminology BUZZZINESS.

Well in my book this is a "CAUSE". A business entails, PROFIT and profit entails mismanagement and GREED. The very things that created this mess in the first place.

Maybe we'll one day have our own committees and subcommitees, like the governmental agencies do (legislatures predominately). In all honesty, not bad thing perhaps as there's now a new economic subcomitte formed by the McKenzie group (which includes 3 of the 6 panel of experts that talked last Thu. on Cspan on Job creation/economy. We have to keep up with times and move forward, right?

Well, point well taken on some levels indeed. I guess though at same time there are many non-profit or not-for profits out there that conduct business legally correct, with proper moral and ethical fiber, including such as those organiz's that focus on less privaleged/at risk population that don't take a penny of income for their own personal use, and receive grants from government in many cases while having a very successful pay structure system for its employees.

Still one NEEDS to keep an eye open for people with sticky fingers in any business. But yes in this beginning it could have a helpful effect on things but like all good things, it take ONE to bring it all crashing down. Sorry, being untrusting of those with power is now in my DNA. Can't change that.

Hey friends, perhaps we can be in position to generate funding on some levels, (as grants?) if we do indeed become technically a business or corporation of some kind? Taht sure would help our CAUSE, even more. I imagine even more legitimate existing advocacy groups would adjoin along with us in some capacity by helping us become a bigger and more noticeable 'VOICE', which in way is what Robert Reich was kind of mentioning what/how we are lacking overall just be nature of 'unemployed'.

Solid points of concern, as long as we keep our main focus as we have been doing and play our individual roles, whatever that niche may be and offering new creative ideas and helping implement them, thus keeping within the framework of our objectives and goals, we'll be fine. I just wish I could get to my local workforce center somehow with all 99ers in one of conference rooms etc... Only really met 1-2 over past year or so unfortunately, imagine lack means to get there or dont' have requirements to be there.

1929... I wonder what that year was actually/really like. All the cool cars, hardened people/hard way of life, everyone got along, small amounts of greed, co's being established across US, midwest/NE/south. all the revered stories from our grandparents era, oh just yesterday, and the stories themselves get fatter and fatter, further from the truth, LOL.

We need a larger voice and more notoriety anyway we look at it, and unless I get a microphone (or all of us) and spent 4 hours every day on each of our US reps door steps chanting 'help the 99ers' we're likely better off gaining support with business type tactic.

I don't think Mr. G trying to make the organization as big as AARP. We do need an organization that will advocate for the long term unemployed. Perhaps he will get additional support from such organization like the AARP. This will give the American 99ers's Union some credibility when working with Senators and Congressman.

Hopefully enough credibility to be a BIG pain in the sides to clowns like Camp and Hatch so we can run guys like them out of DC on a rail.

do you guys just not get it!!! It has gone past any point of NO return!!!We're done.
This is turning into a joke! Lee skipped town just like stabenow . It has taken the same path! Sorry! I read all of the OH boy when this or that person speaks , they listen! I am not knocking anyone for any thing or comments. But Its over as far as I'am concerned. Nothing is going to get done and it will be next year before they really take unemployment serious! Then it will be all about politics!
Ok, OK! I am open for comments that show me otherwise, with facts! Hum! No body! No dem. is in the repubs. face saying they demand that camp gets 589 out of committee. Why the heck are they so passive and mum! Maybe Lee can't get movement but why the hell can't she keep shouting from the rooftops saying " get 589 out of committee now". Helllo! She may be really heard then!

That would be great if it is AARP! They should have taken a stand on this a long time ago. We hear all kinds of proposed job creation plans that will benefit younger people, like the one the President prosed on Saturday, but we never hear one word about people in their 50's.

Update from Gregg Rosen, President and Co-Founder of the American 99er Union:

Good Morning ***,


I was notified that some members of UF2 were questioning the term, “business decision” in the statement provided on 6/14.

From its inception, the American 99ers Union was built upon the foundation of a professional organization taking a business approach to the business of saving lives, rebuilding the American economy and getting Americans back to work without delay.

We shall continue to build upon the aforementioned foundation, until every American realizes the “American Dream” as part of their reality.

Gregg S. Rosen, CPNLP

I think this provides solid clarity and is quite congruent to what the overall intent and purpose has seemed to be just in my viewpoint as being a member and affiliated with this site and as active listener to our presidents blog talk radio show and (his guess appearances on others').

Hopefully this is answers and/or reassures whatever questions or concerns those who questioned the 'business' aspect from couple days ago were perhaps concerned about.

I just thought id maybe add, for whatever it may be worth at all, that we are dealing in some ways either indirectly or directly with state and governmental agencies, (or eventually are likely headed that way on some levels) such as Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, Office of Workforce Security, Labor & Industry, Office of Unemployment Compensations, and of course constituents (representatives) themselves at state/federal levels, non-profits, & professional analysts (workforce/economists etc..)
