UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE WEEKLY CLAIMS REPORT decrease to 414,000

Post by Guest on Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:41 am

In the week ending June 11, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 414,000, a decrease of 16,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 430,000. The 4-week moving average was 424,750, unchanged from the previous week's revised average of 424,750.[b]

This figure continues to be over 400k! A very high figure in a so-called recovery. Of course, since this report shows a decline from last weeks figures (not sure what the economists were expecting), the government will jump for joy and say we are headed in the right direction!

I absolutely agree with youjmain. Anything over 50k doesn't signal a recovery to me when the (-) column far outweighs the (+) column we are not recovering. If there is anything good to come of this right now, the news is running the jobs story and talking jobs every day, every show, so if it spotlights the unemployed and 99ers then maybe it helps. It's a lousy way to get it but we need real help and people need real jobs.

I know this is not a positive statement, but I feel I have to say it. And, I know how self-centered it may seem, but these supposed good statistics on unemployment or the economy only make me feel worse. While I know they are just statistics it leaves me feeling more worthless.

Most of the jobs here are minimum wage. So this is what I spent all this time and money for is to work in call centers and such at minimum wage where I have to beg to get a restroom break. I just feel so down about the whole job market.

Government continues to push people to go to school. I have a high school diploma, an associate degree and a bachelors degree. I have taken extra courses. I know a big part is selling myself, but noone cares, there are at least a dozen applicants for every job.

I feel so disappointed in myself saying this, but while I apply for jobs, I do it mainly to just be able to say I did. I can hardly get the guts anymore to make followup calls and such.

WHile I know I have to stay positive, put out energy, it is hard when physically I am so wiped out as well. If I did not have a nagging voice in me, I would sleep till noon. Eat and maybe go for a walk, and sleep the rest of the day. I guess I have lost motivation, I guess I never had enough being that I could not land any work.

Man I am sorry for being so down. I have a hopeful heart, but its getting beaten down by the daily routine.

Wishing everyone better days ahead.

Thanks for listening.

Im sorry you are so down, wausauguy. I completely understand and its a part of the process. The important thing is that you are still looking. It is important to keep to a routine even if you are only going through the motions.

Don't ever give up. One of these times you will get the job you so deserve!!

No need for thanks...that's why we're here! To listen to each other and offer support. I'd say we have pretty good reason to complain. I dont see it as complaining though, we all need to vent.

but yes, we should keep track of things to be thankful for as well. I think it helps.

Wausauguy,

You're not alone. There are 10's of millions of people in as bad or worse shape than you. Eventually, once this country gets over it's collective madness, all unemployed people who want to get a permanent fulltime job that pays a living wage, like yourself, will again find the work they are looking for.

It has nothing to do with you, and don't let anyone make you feel otherwise. It's the economy. Anyone who will make you feel otherwise has no clue what's going on around them.

wausauguy,

You certainly are not alone. jmainframe said it best. I am so glad you do recognize that regardless of our awful situation, we do have some things to be thankful for. We are all here whenever you need us.

When you really get down or mad, join us on twitter or advocating elsewhere, vent to those who are really not helping. It helps me, maybe it will help you. Don't shut yourself off, but when you need to, walk away. Sometimes it gets overwhelming. When you take a break, sometimes it give you a clearer head. Just stay with us, we appreciate your efforts and enjoy having you hear with us.
