‘I Am Not a Statistic’: The Invisibility of the Unemployed

Post by Guest on Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:04 pm

As Joseph Stalin reportedly (although perhaps apocryphally) said, one death is a tragedy; one million deaths is a statistic.

Here is the full text of her letter, printed here with permission:

Dear Ms. Rampell,

I read with interest your recent column, ‘The Unemployed Somehow Became Invisible’ (July 9).

I am unemployed. I am not a statistic. I am not one of fourteen-plus million. I am me. I have a life. When authors use such big numbers, it’s easy for us unemployed to feel invisible.

Very well-written letter. Thanks Tina for writing it. Hopefully now this government will stop ignoring our cries and take action to relieve our suffering.
