~Unemployed Friends Letter for the 99ers & All Exhaustees~ Updates and suggestions ~

Post by Guest on Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:36 pm

We, the Unemployed-Friends are writing today to ask you to please hear us.
Many of us are without benefits since March 2010. Most of us are without jobs since the 1st quarter of 2008. We need your help.

We are an organization that has kept each other strong, lobbied for extensions and most importantly lobbied for jobs. For the best part of 2-1/2 years we have applied, emailed, faxed and pounded pavements looking for work. We have joined organizations, registered with temporary and permanent employment agencies, registered with on line job searches as well as the states unemployment-jobs agencies. We have not stopped actively searching for work as we hear on an almost constant basis. Our resumes, applications and phone calls for all intents and purposes have disappeared into thin air. The reason for that is companies large and small are not hiring. You can and will draw your own conclusions, however, we are looking actively, we have no choice. Sadly, so many jobs have gone overseas. Why?

Many of you have indicated you need our support to get legislation passed to extend benefits to what we now know as the "99ers". You have also indicated that you need our help to get the Small Business Bill passed. Well ladies and gentlemen, we are here and reporting for duty. What is it you need us to do. We are ready, willing and able to do it.

Let me explain a little about us all in a general fashion. We met on the Unemployed-Friends forum. We have shared employment histories, interview results, resume writing techniques, "how to survive" stories and ways to shop and save on unemployment. We have lobbied for benefits extensions and bills for jobs. We are from every state no matter what the unemployment rate. We range in age from 18 to over 63. We are receptionists, secretaries, lawyers, teachers, real estate agents, financial managers, mechanics, machinists, contractors, carpenters, electricians and plumbers. We are a true representation from all classes. What we have in common is the desire to be gainfully employed again and enjoy raising our families. Not one of us here is looking to make a fast buck on the back of someone else. We are a "family" of people who have never personally met, but are closer than most blood relatives. We have worked together, supported one another in our every day lives. If someone needs a car fixed, a ride, prescriptions filled, resume advice, interview advice, help with homelessness and sadly suicide, we have been there for each other. It used to be the American Way. Most importantly, we are together and not leaving until we get the help we are entitled to. I realize entitled is a dirty word, however, we did our jobs and did our parts for over 30 years. We are not asking for a lifetime of income, but for a lifeline until an effective jobs program is created and we are all working again.

We are a talented bunch. We write, sing, play instruments and as I mentioned above have many enviable job skills. We have a fantastic work ethic, if we didn't this forum would have died three weeks after it started. Take advantage of our talents. What do we need to do to prove to all of you we need jobs and we need benefits as well?
Who do you want us to contact?

Those of us who exhausted our benefits worked tirelessly to get H.R. 4213 passed knowing it would not benefit us. Those that benefitted from 4213 are still working with the 99ers to get this bill passed.

Most importantly, we need jobs created. Real jobs. It is very disheartening to hear many of you give your dailly sound bite telling us that jobs are available. I am here to tell you, they are not. Certainly, there are a few. I am registered on 11 different agencies and internet sites. I have had three interviews out of 1241 applications sent. Bloomberg reports this morning that Walmart and Home Depot are keeping ahead for two reasons: they don't bonus out their managers at any level and they are keeping their current work force of full time and part time employees. No additional hiring this year as well as last. Minimum wage jobs are not readily available, as some have said and a minimum wage part time job will help, however, for most families it continues them on TANF, Food Stamps and Medicaid. How does that help cut spending?

We have suffered through most of the summerof 2010 without incomes and benefits while you have taken two vacations with no help to those who need it. Now you are gearing up for the fall campaigns. Do you not think advertising $22 million dollars for ad buys is a slap in the face to people who have no income. Do you think we won't remember?

Tonight brings us to the State of the Union 2011. For the 99ers the State of the Union sadly brings us a new year with no help. Not one of us is asking for anymore than the Banks, the Auto Industry and the Mortgage Industry has asked for, far less actually. We need your help until jobs open up at a greater rate than they are currently. We all wait every single day for phone calls and emails that never come. Over 14 million people are not lazy, untalented, untrained individuals who couldn't hold down a job. Many of us were employed for over 30 years. What we need is your help and for the truth to be told about just how many unemployed Americans there are. On a weekly basis, the 99er numbers grow and the unemployment numbers decline. Mainly these numbers decline due to the number of people who are no longer counted among the unemployed because they have in fact exhausted all benefits, not because we have become disinterested in seeking employment. We cannot afford to do that.

This morning at 9:45 AM Rep. Lee and Rep. Scott held a Press Conference to introduce the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act. This would give a much needed 14 weeks of benefits to the 99ers who have exhausted all benefits. Today is February 9, 2011, some members will "celebrate" their one year anniversary next month with NO benefits. H.R. 589 is a lifeline and hope for exhaustees and should not be ignored. Your support for this legislation is very important and the moral thing to do. As of today, we see very slow job creation. Although any job creation is a great thing, we need massive efforts to get ALL the unemployed back to work in jobs that will pay a living wage and afford people the ability to obtain healthcare, shelter and food; a wage that would enable them to be removed from all programs the Federal Government and the States Government funds.

If American companies want to hire dedicated workers who will give it their all, retrain for positions out of their field, keep open minds and remain loyal to companies, they have to look no further than the 99ers of the United States. Through the worst of times that can be described only by those who are living it, we have stayed together and kept each other going with nothing more than posted words, but two and one-half years in, we are still together doing just that.

Living in a country such as ours, for all of us it is unthinkable that we would not help countries like Haiti who are so in need. How is it that you can forget people who until 2008 helped our country help others and yet, not even kind words are lent to the American 99ers. We now need your help and have needed it for well over eight months.

We are all here now waiting for you to tell us what help you need. The ball is in your court. I think at this time you are aware that there are more unemployed than the numbers truly reflect. That is a great deal of votes. We are asking you now to help us secure employment.

You asked for our help, we are here waiting for your response. What do you need us to do? You cannot keep telling us NO!!! We need a plan of action and we need it now. Winter is too cold to have families without heat and food and benefits and the 99ers are families not just individuals.

Here we sit in June 2011, still searching for that job that will get us the financial help we need for ourselves and our families, while bills sit in committee and our lives hang in the balance. We aren't disappearing, our numbers are growing. You can't ignore us forever.

Today, July 6, 2011 well over a year with no benefits for most 99ers, the President held a twitter town hall. Not one mention of the unemployed directly or the 99ers. We are invisible, not counted. Can you afford to lose the votes of the unemployed and 99ers for ignoring us? We are part of this country, a major part of the unemployment picture and our missing tax dollars do add up. Our deficit grows daily, revenues don't. Can you afford to continue ignoring us?

Tell us, what will you do, a jobs bill, a real one this time, in the meantime, benefits are necessary. What help can we give you? We are willing, but now it's time for you to act responsibly. Actions not words are needed.

This weekend, Labor Day Weekend 2011, the second summer ends for most of us who are living with no benefits and no job prospects. Thursday, a really poor jobs report and a Congress who is more interested in sound bites, a Republican Debate, fourteen months before an election and a squabble with the President over dates to hold a joint session of Congress. You set a wonderful example for children who will study this in the future. You behavior is horrible and quite frankly in poor taste. You have American Citizens, Voters who are starving and desperate and you worry about budgets. Should you, of course, but not at the expense of human lives. We need your help, we have needed it for two years and now it's time for all of you to roll up your sleeves, get to work and make something happen for us. We are more than willing to help, but you MUST help us. We can't sit by and patiently request your help any longer, you MUST HELP US.

Now we find ourselves in October of 2011. We have Presidential Candidates, OccupyWallStreet, Debates and still no Jobs Plan. Are you starting to see what we mean now. This letter will get longer and longer and yet still no real plan of action. There will be a test vote tonight on the Senate Floor. Will you vote to bring the American Jobs Act to the people who elected you and really need this legislation, if not, will be present a similar plan of action that will help the PEOPLE? I think you know by now, we are NOT going away. Why can't we all work together on this? Let us help, start by listening, then tell us what you need for us to do. We can't wait much longer. If things don't change soon, you all may be part of our group. We have nothing left to lose, you still have much to lose. Please, hear the messages, work together, get a plan of action.

Here we sit Monday, November 21, 2011, three days before Thanksgiving. Many families have NOTHING to be thankful for. The Super Committee has proven to be a failure and with a downgrade, a shakey economy and no Jobs Bill, those without benefits for almost two years are hopeless. Just how long do you think people can depend on the kindness of friends and families before their money gives out. A thought that apparently doesn't occur to most of you. If you don't want class warfare, don't continue to add to it. People need your help and they need to believe in the people who they elected. What will it take? We have many times offered our help and very few have responded, so again we ask, what do you need us to do? We are waiting.

In addition, do you truly not believe that November 2012 is an election year not only for the President, but for many of you as well. Right now, it's not Democrat or Republican, it's about cleaning house. Party will not matter to many, they will vote for whoever will help them, many will vote just to clean house. The people are waiting for leadership, help and a government that works for the Country, not for your particular needs and wants, they will vote for theirs.

It's the end of January 2012, we are still here. You have collectively done nothing to help us. For many this is the start of their fourth year. Another election campaign is upon us. It would be wise to start working on issues that people care about. It's a disgrace that after this long, many, many reports, many, many months, nothing, NOTHING has been done. Please remember, we VOTE.

~~~May 29, 2012 Update~~~

Okay, so apparently the game of chicken is scaring both parties. Please remember, you are playing chicken with the lives of millions of American Voters. We may not be able to find suitable employment, we may be down but we will never give up this fight. You can continue to ignore us and things will get worse until, once again it blows up. Europe is close. We refuse to give up, help us so we can help get this country back to where we should be. Help us to get jobs so we can contribute to taxes, benefits, social security. Help us so we can pay bills, buy goods, get proper medical attention. Stop playing chicken with peoples lives. We remember and we vote.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Getting the same thing sometimes ss, however, doing nothing makes me feel worse. My zip is 08051 calling from South Jersey.

I am constantly contacting Crew of 42 and Rep. Barbara Lee, I can't stop, could be my need to keep on trying, but it's too important to me to stop. Will we see benefits? I have no idea, but I sure would be happy if EVERYONE at least knew about us and our two year fight and the real unemployment rate along with the real lack of jobs. It won't pay the bills, but people who are so quick to bash will know the truth.

Good to hear from you.

I am working on a local level as well. VP Biden - see the link. The Mayors conference every year, they spoke out for us last year, keep contacting them as well. They as a whole, are feeling the crunch too.

Hoping all are well and staying cool, it's starting to get really humid and hot here.

So far successfully emailing away. Phones seem to be busy, not sure why or what that's all about.

Does anyone know if anything is happening on twitter.

Mostly busy signals on the phone.

Hi ss, I had the same problem about 4 months ago and then the attacks started. With everything that was going on with my Dad, I just didn't have the head to deal with it. I shouldn't let it bother me, but the whole hacking thing is impossible to stop so I went on right after my Dad died but the crap storm started again, so I backed away. It had seemed to me that it really died off too.

Hoping you are well.

I've been hacked on twitter. It was that stupid link I clicked on that says "you should hear what so and so has said about you, it's terrible!" as soon as I clicked the link it sent the same message to as many follwers twitter would allow them to. I couldn't get into my acct to stop it for 24 hours. I changed the pw and moved on. I change it frequently now and have had no other issues since accept some of tweets being sent into the abyss. Usually ones that contain the OWS hash. It's very disappointing.

SnT....I did learn to change out my Twitter password off & on to keep from getting hacked. But I just wonder if politicans with twitter feed flock us and we don't know it? I am still calling mostly, then emails too.

I am sure they block what they want to block. I print out my fax register at the end of every day to see what went through and what rejected. I don't honestly get many blocked faxes. Don't know about emails. As far as the phones. All calls are logged. I say keep calling. We just can't do nothing.

Hope you are all having a great day.

OH YES!!!! MK...I say keep calling too. I still Email & Fax as well....I was just talking about Twitter. Not my favorite way to communicate with Both Parties. I keep calling my local mayor & LA's Mayor Villarigosa along with my state senators, & Governor. I agree DOING NOTHING, GET'S NOTHING DONE!
& to borrow from my own quote from Dr. Seuss.....

Will start the calls in about an hour. Should be a busy day on the Hill with contempt votes and healthcare announcements, I am sure they are all there.

I am working the phones in the morning and emailing and faxing this afternoon.

Thanks all for the help.

Thanks to all as well for the prayers. Settlement on Mom and Dad's house went well, just a few issues which were settled easily. I think we are lucky that three weeks ago we staged and filmed and yesterday we settled. We think Dad's daily mass schedule must have helped.

Once again, many thanks. It's a great comfort to me to have all of your support and many kind messages and thoughts. Love to all.

Stay cool, we are going back in to the soup again for the next five days, high heat warnings and alerts. Hydrate.

Good Morning All Friends. Happy 4th to all of our family!!! Hope you enjoy and stay cool. It's like chicken soup here and it's 9:28 AM.

Once again, I find I have to post this so our Members are clear on this:

If I, or anyone here has made anyone feel they needed to participate in this letter, let me be clear, I never intended for anyone to feel this way, nor did Jobless, Sick n Tired, Desp. In RI. This was here for willing participants only. I am continuing to send this out daily, even if it does fall on deaf ears as I cannot sit back and do absolutely nothing. Unemployment and Jobs has to get back into the focus, not repealling all business done in the last 3 years. Any of our new members who wishes to sign, please just post your name and I will add to the list when I email. If you don't, please do not feel pressured to do so. That was never our intent. Our intent was to let people in DC know of our struggles and the length of time we have been struggling.

Today, in Philadelphia, Occupy is having a national march for jobs, tax fairness, ending wars etc. They are slated to rally at the same time the Tea Party is rallying at the big July 4th celebration. Let's see if we get early fireworks. When the 6abc link appears, I will post.

Again, Happy 4th and I hope that this letter didn't make any of you feel you needed to sign.

I doubt anyone is working in DC but I will be emailing this morning.

Have a few things to deal with regarding the family and Dad's paperwork so I am tied up this afternoon.

I don't think we will hear much this week, but next week should really heat up with the "repeal" vote.

We need to change the conversation once again, but they will play chicken with this until the election, if we let them.

Please all stay cool and keep an eye on pets and the elderly, it's going to remain brutally hot here until Monday. Be well.

Today I am working the phones and sending out emails. I just can't believe that we are still talking (in DC) about repeals and taxes. People need to work!!! Why isn't everyone just screaming mad about this? If I worked in DC I would think my constituents would be beating me daily?

Any ideas are welcome!!!
