The Unemployed, Organized Online, Look to the Midterms

Workers march to protest for jobs legislation. (Rasdourian/Flickr)

Sometime this spring, Republicans turned against unemployment. In Nevada, Sharron Angle (R), the candidate facing incumbent Sen. Harry Reid (D), told local reporters, “You can make more money on unemployment than you can going down and getting one of those jobs that is an honest job.” (Untrue.) Angle also called the unemployed “spoiled.”

[Economy1] Rand Paul, a candidate for a Kentucky Senate seat, made similar statements, and politicians in Washington followed suit. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said on C-SPAN that extending unemployment would discourage “individuals that are out there to actually go out and go through the interviews.”

But unlike most comments from politicians, these criticisms did not diffuse into the generic noise of political chatter. They began reverberating in what might be termed the unemployed netroots — a system of highly trafficked, influential blogs and sites connecting the jobless and updating them, often in minute detail, about the ins and outs of Congress’ work on unemployment issues.

When Jordan, a former programmer living in Nevada, lost his position with a local university, he began sending out resumes, but he also found himself following the eight-month battle for an unemployment extension closely — each failed Senate vote, each new House proposal. (He requested I withhold his last name to avoid impeding his job search.) Online, he started surfing list-servs, posting on message boards and using resources from the unemployed. A few times, he has worked up the courage to call his legislators’ offices.

Jordan has searched hard for a job and is now considering moving away from his family for a few months, if it means he can send home a paycheck. “I have voted Republican my entire life,” he says. “I don’t want to vote for Harry Reid. But I don’t want to be told I’m lazy, and I’m dumb, and I’m living high on the hog, collecting [unemployment insurance] because I want to.”

There are more than 30 million people left without work at some point during the course of the recession; 14.6 million are currently unemployed. As many as 4 million people have exhausted the maximum weeks of federal and state unemployment benefits. In each case, Jordan is among these millions, and for an uncountable number of people like him, the experience with income insecurity has led to a political awakening.

Among the biggest sites in the unemployment netroots is LayoffList, managed by Michael Thornton, a native of Rochester, N.Y.  Thornton started LayoffList in 2008; five months ago, he began writing articles and posting legislators’ information on the Rochester Unemployment Examiner. He now receives hundreds of emails and has logged more than a million hits at the Examiner. Thornton is finding that, rather than losing interest in politics since the end of the fight for extended benefits, the unemployed are “energized and motivated” and have started looking forward to the fall.

“Even Republicans say they aren’t voting Republican anymore,” the soft-spoken former technical writer says. “You have millions of unemployed people out there. If even half of them voted, they could swing a nationwide election.”

Paladinette — the online “zealot for the unemployed” also known as LaDona King — has taken the battle over the unemployment extension as more of a call to arms. She routinely publishes phone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses of lawmakers to target, rallying her thousands of online supporters to the cause. King personally calls 25 or 30 legislators’ offices a day. Sometimes, when she posts lawmakers’ numbers or picks out a particularly egregious example of a legislator blocking a vote or putting down the unemployed, her followers flood a Senate or House office with phone calls. The same goes for LayoffList. At one point, Thornton published the name and number of a House staffer working on unemployment legislation. Soon after, the staffer called and begged him to take it down, he says.

“They’re all concerned about their re-election,” King says. “We’re making sure the Republicans get blasted for their obstructionist behavior. … We have tons of people calling, faxing, emailing.”

“We’re lobbyists in training,” she laughs. “Without all that money!”

During the eight month battle to extend unemployment insurance, with the unemployment rate peaking over 10 percent, huge online networks of the unemployed came into fruition. Now, coming into the fall and the midterms, King and other grassroots organizers for the unemployed are hooking up with formal organizing groups to add institutional oomph to the effort. They say they do not want to let the long battle for simple extensions go to waste.

Already, a number of unions and other organizations have created dedicated working groups or online organizations for the jobless. Last year, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, a labor union, founded the Ur Union of Unemployed, or U-Cubed, for jobless workers. Additionally, the AFL-CIO’s Working America affiliate has launched Unemployment Lifeline, an online site to rally and organize the unemployed.

Working America is “the biggest organization for the unemployed,” according to spokesman Robert Fox. By the union’s own count, 500,000 of its 3.2 million members are currently jobless, and the group is going door-to-door, recruiting more members from the ranks of the unemployed.

“We spend most of our time demanding the reform of banks, demanding good jobs, and trying to make sure that there’s investment being made in our communities,” says Fox. But come this fall, “We’re going to be engaging our members fully, making sure they’re aware of which candidates to support.”

“We have the ability to make sure a lot of unemployed folks know where politicians stand, who is voting against making investments in jobs, who needs to hear from unemployed workers and who needs to hear from them twice,” he says.

Likewise, U-Cubed is readying unemployed workers to call out politicians and candidates stumping in their home states during the August recess, planning to visit events in Wichita, Ks., and the west coast.

The push from the unemployment netroots has already started. Upon hearing that Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) might attempt to move legislation for unemployed workers who have exhausted their benefits this week, Paladinette urged her followers to start calling possible swing votes — Republican Sens. Olympia Snowe (Maine), Susan Collins (Maine), Scott Brown (Mass.) and Charles Grassley (Iowa).

And she says she is gearing up to push her followers to attend rallies starting next week. “We don’t want to be like the Tea Partiers,” she says, noting their small-government views, “Just sort of.”

99er legislation seems to be getting ignored again. No problem. I know I wont be voting republican this year. Its sad that we voters have to threaten a persons position in life in order to get some thing done when it should come out of the persons heart to want to help the unemployed. I am all for taking these lazy losers out of office and with enough of us, we can make that happen. GO!

At 15-million strong there's no doubt the unemployed can be a game changer come November. Organization is the key. And attacking the unemployed will be the downfall of Angel and Paul.

I'm one of the lifelong Rs who is very offended by the party's position on this issue. I am not unemployed but I do a lot of dog and cat rescue and have dealt with many pets of people who have had to give them up because of unemployment so I have seen the collateral damage. I have stopped contributing for now to candidates until I see some humanity reestablished.

Sharron Angle has a boat load of grandchildren (10) and like most of us that love our grandchildren, Mrs. Angle refuses to burden these kids with a lifetime of poverty because they will have to pay for our foolishness one way or the other. Therefore, she only supports programs that are fully funded before they go int effect. She is not without concern for those who can't find a job. She promises to work to repeal many of the costly programs and regulations that force employers to be reluctant to hire additional workers. She simply prefers to pay for things that congress proposes not just “print” more money to solve a problem today and then hand the problem over to subsequent generations. Is this such a radical concept?

What a lame attempt at spin. So if the extension of benefits were paid for by a surtax on billionaires, Angle would support it? Not a chance. She opposes extending benefits because she's a heartless right-winger who believes the unemployed are lazy parasites.

So she would rather burden the children of today with hunger, homelessness and poverty? I am pretty sure her 10 grand children are well financed. Stop the BS, it's not going to work. we kept telling them that this issue will not be forgotten. Where was her response 4 weeks ago, 2 weeks ago? Hi, meet the lazy, uneducated, drug addicted people you threw away. We're BACK… and we ain't going nowhere but the voting booth.

Does she ask that tax breaks for the ultra-rich be fully deficit neutral?

Of course not.

Does she support cutting defense spending?

Of course not.

No Republican is concerned about the defict for our grandchildren — they are only concerned about taking care of their richest, most powerful supporters. If you haven't noticed this, you haven't been paying attention.

Hangtown are you ignorant, working for Ms. Angle or just that dumb?

Of course she supports things that aren't paid for! Extending the Bush tax cuts would be the most egregious example of this….2 Trillion dollars over ten years to provide tax cuts to some of the wealthiest in the country.

But who doesn't support a tax cut for a millionaire so they can put in a pool or buy a second home? They worked hard, didn't get laid off and now since they have more than 97% of the country lets give them a little more.

However, if you are unemployed and need to provide clothing, food and shelter to your family……..go F@*K off you lazy ass. You are just so spoiled sitting around doing nothing, collecting checks so that you can throw that money away and never look for a job.

The tea party and the GOP continue to frighten me….what will they do if they actually take over. Cannot let that happen. Thankfully with buffoons like Sharron they have made our jobs a little easier.

I'm all for deficit reduction and think it needs to happen. However, this is the wrong issue to use as a poster child against the deficit.

I find it pretty sad that those who are spinning this issue to be the fault of the Dems and President Obama have no idea what will happen if Republicans regain power.
Forget workplace safety. That's if you can find a job that pays a LIVING wage. Don't mind the boss, he's an a**hole, but he holds all the cards, and can FIRE you in a HEARTBEAT if your “honesty” isn't in line with his. Saving for your kids? forget that, too, because you damn sure won't be making enough to do that. But hey, you'll be choking on smog and gas fumes, because oil will be cheap, just until it runs out, then what will happen? You'll also be working til' you're 80, or maybe til' you die, because you won't have Social Security or Medicare. Freedom? Forget that, because Corporations will be telling you (forcing you) what to do, what to eat, what to think, and guess what? you'll HAVE to do it, or be forced to live somewhere you don't want to, or just be homeless. Oh, if you ARE homeless, forget about handouts, no one else will have the money to give, unless it comes from a rich SOB who happens to pity you just at that moment.
Buy American? there won't be any American products, because we'd have outsourced ALL the manufacturing jobs, in favor of service jobs. Don't worry, BE HAPPY………..with that Mc Donalds uniform, and don't piss off the customers, who will all be rich, because they will be the only ones who can afford it, anymore.
The rich will run this country, and the rest will be “the small people” to quote that BP exec. There will be NO social safety net, so you'll be on your own, if ANYTHING happens to you unexpectedly. What's happened to the unemployed will be the norm.

If you liked any of the above, vote Republican. Or tea bagger. The choice is yours…………

Thank you Annie for this informative and helpful article, I am emailing it to some friends.

The 99 weekers are left behind to abject poverty, homelessness, desperation, hopelessness. I pray Sen. Schumer will attempt to move for legislation extending more tiers, hopefully a 5th and 6th to the 99 weekers as soon as possible. We need to knock on all Senators doors, but particularly Schumer and the possible swing vote Senators.

Also, the millions of those currently receiving benefits are prohibited from volunteering, a great way to help out and a great pathway to a permanent job. All benefits are stopped, usually forever, if the individual is honest and puts down on their form they volunteered, even if it is specifically to get a permanent job. This has to change.

The danger with being dishonest is someone working with you could report you to whatever state employment office you receive benefits from. It is better to be honest. But sad that none of us can volunteer without being penalized.

If republicans truly were legitimately concerned about their grandchildrens future – aside from the deficit, don't you think they'd actually have interest in new growth industries, clean energy, climate change, education, election reform and reform of the banking industries?

Republicans just seem to grooming their future generations – “Heck, the republican party screwed me for 40 years, now it's your turn.”

The whole “leaving our children a mess” mantra from the right is complete hyperbole. They don't give a rat's patootie – they got theirs.

So the country their grand kids will inherit, will be in massive debt, won't manufacture anything, still be running on dirty and expensive fossil fuels, the top 2% will hold the majority of the wealth, the elections would be decided by corporations, businesses could trash the environment as long as their profits stay high, and the financial industry will have free reign to destroy our economy at their will.

Thats' some America! That's the republican future – that's “their” America.

I have grandchildren..in fact I am a single grandparent raising them alone…when I lost my job I had to go on unemployment. Because my job was somewhat outdated …the mortgage industry …I returned to school to get an associates in IT…a high recognized and suggested Dept of Labor field to be trained in by the way. I used my unemployment to help support myself and the kids while going to school.
The children and I live in the here and now…as for their future they will have one but for right now for them the present is it. They need me trained now so that I can assist with their college educations and just get them through school and graduate before we are evicted and have to live in a shelter or under a bridge.
Please Please get this. You are only looking at this woman who has a job and not people like myself. Hopefully, if you are able to think you will understand there are more people and children like my situation than Sharon!

I'm self employed and was never eligible for unemployment. There are lots of us too. Hanging in, trying to be creative but I have health problems after chemotherapy so I don't know if I could work a 9-5 anyway. But we need to be counted. I've worked hard since I was kid and I've never been lazy. I'd love to see how long song of the GOP would last walking in my shoes. Shameful behavior.

Great to see your article Annie,

We at nojobsurvivor.com have been in operation a year and a half and get 15-20000 visitors a month and have an online petition open to lobby for a Tier 5 UI extension and since we have collected some 2000 signatures and a similar number of heartbreaking stories from our visitors. We are publishing these stories as an addendum to an open letter to Congress we are publishing on our site. We contacted the house, the senate and the whitehouse after the July 4 weekend pointing them to the stories and signatures we have collected. So far only the WhiteHouse has responded with a disappointing form letter. We have published the response on our site for all to see. We collect more and more stories every day and we will not let up on passing on these stories to Washington and reminding them that these stories represent just a small fraction of the 15 million unemployed and 8 plus million underemployed who ALL are eligible to vote. I personally work over 100 hours a week running this site while looking for a job and trying to earn as much as I can form small part time jobs and yes I am a 99er.

Thanks again for publicizing the movement.

The way official 10% (unofficial estimates of 20% at some point in time) unemployement is appearing in media it is now obvious that US economy needs new direction as given below:-

The problem of unemployment can easily be solved if USA gets freedom from the tyranny of its misconceived notions & prejudices and US Federal government directly gives jobs to the unemployed in an ‘Employment Guarantee Program’ (EGP). After all heavens will not fall on the capitalist (as opposed to socialist) economy of USA if 10 % of unemployed Americans are given job directly by US govt.

In the name of creating jobs and removing unemployment in the wake of on-going economical crises so much dirt has been unnecessarily created by both republican and democrat administrations (by way of bailouts, allowances and stimulus to even to inefficients & shirkers) that it has not only destroyed the reputation of USA world over as a competitive and free market economy and created crony capitalism, wasted interests and lobbies for perpetuating these unethical and predatory policies but also without any worth while result regarding eradication of unemployment from USA.

Of course EGPs in some countries has not worked successfully for the simple reason that people who can not run a factory or other industrial / business activities efficiently and profitably aspire and claim to run the country and become Ministers in those countries. But USA will not face this problem and will find capable Fed Ministers to run this EGP efficiently.

The answer is simple, NO REPUBLICANS IN OFFICE. Kick them out. If you vote for them you are voting for greed driven capitalism and corporatism. Both don't need greed to survive. Americans need to decide what agenda we take for the next 20 years. It doesn't have to be deceit drivin legislation. We are all going to have to sacrifice to get out of this mess. We are all going to have to be humble so next generations can have a country to work in. GREED needs to be excommunicated from American Values. So many points about slimmy republicans you can write a book about it. Vote for anyone but republicans, let them go home and get old. They obviously want to.

As you well know, many Republicans wanted to vote for unemployment extension if just half would be paid for by the remaining “stimulus” money.

(Obama is keeping the rest of the “stimulus” to use as a slush fund to help his re-election.)

The Dems decided to demagogue the issue, not to pay for even half of the extention, and leave the unemployed hanging for a month.

If the unemployed are dumb enough to believe Barry, Harry, and Nancy, they will never work again.

You can't spend your way out of the enormous debt that the Dems and statist Republicans created. The subprime mess was created when the Dems gave free money to people of color to buy houses. Bush joined the party to create the “ownership” society. So much for 'compassionate' conservatism. To give him credit, Bush wanted to stop the casino at Fannie and Freddie, but by 2006 the Dems controlled congress and refused to stop the free money giveaway to their voters.

If the unemployed think following the Dems money printing and tax hiking schemes will create jobs, they are being played for fools!

No tax increase you propose. So we are going broke. What do we cut. Not one so call deficit hawk can tell us what they propose. “Pork” is not a defined proposition. What do we cut specifically. Republicans keep say we need to cut spending, but have no clue what to cut. Why? Because they have not freakin idea. And some want to vote them back into majority? Why? So don't let the tax cuts expire, which will reduce the deficit. Cool. But that does nothing to their deficit hawk balking. They say we need to cut, tell us what they want to cut. Short answer, they are clueless. Don't vote for democrats? Fine. But if you vote for republicans you will be voting the worst political party in US history. The choice is always individually yours. Enjoy your decisions result if you vote republican. Republicans are attempting to make us fascists. The writing is on the wall, make sure your friends, neighbors, everyone understands this.

I like how the author of the article refers to the maximum number of weeks of unemaployment, without actually stating what the max is. There are 7 states where the max is 46 weeks. 11 states where the max is 59 weeks. The remaining 32 states offer unemployment for more than 72 weeks. While difficult, at some point the American worker does have to consider other career paths and other geographic locations. I know it looks easy for me to say do something else, go somewhere else, but at some point, long before you reach 10.5 months of unemployment, a person needs to get his you know what up off the couch and make a change. Because the needs of the few are running the many into the ground with every newly printed dollar they accept in benifits.

Well, it could come from repealing the Bush tax cuts and putting taxes for incomes above 250K back at the pre-Reagan level. Or, we could kill the WTO and the host of bad trade deals, starting with NAFTA, and bring our jobs back home. Or you could throw them in the streets and let em die while you throw your tea bags at them.

But you cannot move if you have a house that you cannot sell. This has been one of the largest causes of problems. Republicans voted against allowing cramdown, which would have allowed judges to force banks to take a cut on the value of the home in allowing short sales. This type of activity takes place in bankruptcy proceedings all the time, but Republicans wouldn't allow it. What's more, the banking system is still flush with bad loans that are crippling the economy. Until those bad loans are flushed, America is going to be in the toilet.

Thats the sacrifice you make when you buy a home vs renting your home. Perhaps the unemployed home owner should have squirelled away some of his mortgage interest deduction, which is a really nice benifit of homeownership. Life is full of tradeoffs and sacrfices.

* More than 84 percent of the subprime mortgages in 2006 were issued by private lending institutions.

* Private firms made nearly 83 percent of the subprime loans to low- and moderate-income borrowers that year.

* Only one of the top 25 subprime lenders in 2006 was directly subject to the housing law that's being lambasted by conservative critics (called the Community Reinvestment Act).

Or they inherited their wealth from the people who won, such as their parents or their grandparents. I believe in competition among human capital for rewards, which is exactly why the estate tax needs to be increased. People who have never competed against others for their wealth are not true human beings and contribution nothing to society.

You are alluding to Reagan, but there are two problems. First, this Recession is nothing like Reagan's. We're facing deflationary pressures not inflation of 15%. Second, Reagan instituted a policyt of deficit creation that haunts Washington to this day (http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A26402…). Unprecedented peacetime deficits increased debt held by the public from $789 billion in 1981 to $3.0 trillion (48.1% of GDP) in 1992.

Third, even though GDP grew, the average American was worse off. By the late 1980s, middle-class incomes were barely higher than they had been a decade before – and the poverty rate had actually risen.

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/20/rea…

Here is what Reagan brought:

1) Less compensation for productivity gains

2) A greater split between the haves and the have nots

Smokin' mirrors…
…… cheap labor is the primary cause for outsourcing, low shipping and communication costs contribute; companies can produce goods overseas and then ship them back to the United States WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT TAX.

“Any worker whose job does not require daily face-to-face interaction is now in jeopardy of being replaced by a lower-paid, equally skilled worker thousands of miles away,”
said Paul Craig Roberts, an economist with Institute for Political Economy who worked for President Reagan in 1980s.
……high paying jobs once thought safe, such as software engineers, data processors, phone bankers and software designers, are now at risk of being outsourced.

A better question to arise, long before you reach a year of unemployment, should be something along the lines of … “What can I do get myself a productive job, because in my current location and vocation, there are no opportunities”.

The Dems and the Republicans neither are the answer. As a 99er I am not blind by the fact that the politicians have ignorned the 99ers. They feel they have pushed thier agenda and that the unemployed who got the extention will walk away happy. The 99ers are not fooled. Job creation didnt take effect during the 99 weeks I received checks. Job creation after the battle and the speeches in congress still is not a priority in Washington. They are both to blame. Even our own President doesnt have anything to say to the 99ers. What they are doing is playing a political game with peoples lives and I for one am not fooled. I will support someone who get help for my family and creates some job creation. I will support a politician who will stand up and fight the fight even if its not a popular choice. Thats the politician I will stand for the one who wants to do the Right thing not the Popular thing. Unemployment is not for a popularity contest its peoples survival. Where are the democrats now that the extension is passed for the 99ers? Why was that an emergency when they was fighting for the extension to begin with. The Republicans are no better with calling people lazy. We didnt make this mess but we darn sure are suffering for it. If they wont do their jobs none of them should be in office.

It's trickle-down economics that's to blame, and that's what we need to vote against. That means voting against Republicans first and foremost. Even the worst Democrat is better than a Republican. Later on you can primary the crummy Democrats.

The economy did NOT take off like a shot, Denise. What happened was that the economy finally recovered from the actions of NIXON who took us off Breton Woods and caused the inflationary spiral that started all this.
That did last a little while ( it had to after all if Western Civilization was to cotinue) but reagan's VooDoo econoics ( a term used by his own VP> GHW Bush) eventually resulted in a terrible, terrible recession, the Bush I recession. Bush was summarily dumped by the voters. Clinton came into the White House, raised taxed slightly, and THEN the economy took off like a shot.

WHY did the economy talke off like a shot? Because the rich reinvested in business instead of paying it out in taxes.

This last shock (W's recession) has been enough to open everyone's eyes to the moronicity that is the “cut the taxes for the rich” and “deregulate business” mantras.

Everyone knows who the Republicans are working for and who is looking out for the Dems.

And…we'd all be working now if the republicans would stop blocking.

The Repubs need to stop their Union Busting, Midle Class hating, holier than thou, elitist ways. They need to stop lying to Americans ( HA! FAT CHANCE!) l AND THEY NEED TO STOP BLOCKING LEGISLATION TO HELP AMERICA. THEY NEED TO DROP THE FILIBUSTERS IN THE SENATE AND START WORKING TO HELP THE COUNTRY, NOT THE CORPORATIONS.

And hust exactly what was with it about the eight years of American peace and prosperity during the Clinton Administration that offends you trolls?

The real failure is in regulation. Trickle down has been functioning and growing for 25 years and was really undercut by regulations which have been repeatedly reduced by republicans and and democrats alike.

Supply side theory is the only way to build a sustainable economic growth engine. We have a front row for a trillion dollar failure in Keyensian economic theory. Its why Krugman and other Keyensian theorists were calling for a larger stimulus last year, they knew that not nearly enough money was being put in the consumers hands. And the reasoning is simple … You can put money in a person's pocket, but if they don't think they are going to have a job next week or next month, they aren't going to spend that money. Conversely, enabling business to spend on capital improvement and hiring breeds confidence among potential consumers. Obama has not only failed to enable business to hire, he's created a hostile environment where big business is hoarding cash and not expanding their payroll.

I am 54 years old and a 99-er. I have been sending e mails daily to the White House and I urge everyone reading this to do so. My home is in forclosure and I spend 10+ hours per day looking for work. In 2008 I made $58,000 per year. I currently have no food, a sofa, an old car that is empty on gas and 28 cents in my pocket. I applied for emergency food stamps this week because I had no other option.
I am so angry that people (Republicans) think we are lazy and enjoy living under these rock bottom positions. My job moved to China. Is that my fault?
Do you think anyone in Congress will allow any of us that are just days away from homelessness to live in their mansions in Washington while Congress and the President are away on yet another vacation in August 2010?

The more I learn about Sharron Angle and the Tea Party the more iritating they become. Part of the purpose of government is to “promote the general welfare.” Letting millions of Americans be either unemployed or under employed is not good for the country and does not “promote the general welfare.” For us to stay competitive in the world market it is important that all americans are able to fulfill their potential. Be able to contribute to the GDP as effectively as possible. Cutting costs on education and allowing our fellow citizens to languish in unemployment hurts all of us.

We're talking about people who have been unemployed for 99 weeks. That's almost two years! How much mortgage interest deduction do you get on your home? Enough to pay your mortgage for 6 months? Not even…. Any money that they might have had from their mortgage interest deduction was also probably in the stock market, which means it was just cut by 40% thanks to these idiots on Wall Street.

The issue is that Americans homes in the belief that there was not a group of jerks secretly trying to run the economy off the cliff in order to get bonuses.

The Goldman Sachs/Paulson issue that recently led to a Justice Dept. settlement was just one example of a firm KNOWINGLY selling a car that they knew would blow up on the unsuspecting customer, then buying life insurance on the driver. The activity was criminal, and dangerous for the nation.

Toyota has a few hundred sudden acceleration issues and is forced to recall 8 million cars on their own dime. Banks have millions of faulty mortgages and false investment products that bankrupted communities and even nations (e.g., Iceland), and not only recall.

By your rationale, “I guess that's the sacrifice you make when you live in the 'I got mine, screw you' America that Ronnie built.”

There is zero empirical evidence that supply side economics has ever worked. Demand side economics is the only thing that works.

What are those holding capital going to supply, if they do not know demand? Give money to the poor and middle class and they will consume, informing the capitalists where to apply their funds.

Supply side tax policy has never paid for itself. It has always increased deficits, and you will not find a credible economist who will disagree.

Greg Mankiw, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under George W. Bush, has responded to the view that broad-based tax cuts would pay for themselves, as follows: “I did not find such a claim credible, based on the available evidence. I never have, and I still don’t.” Indeed, he has referred to those who believe this as “charlatans and cranks.”

So which are you?

This has caused me to lose the best man I have ever been with. How do I move with no money and no gas, no family. I am returning cosmetics to the store just so I can buy gas. So, if I do get a call for an interview, I will not be fresh and with no make-up on for a professional like me for 16 years, that is a NO GO. I don't own a house, thank God !! Yeah…I made it to the food pantries yesterday with my daughter and her 10 mo old son (MY GRANDSON) Do these morons know what we are going through. Obviously NOT ! I live out in the middle of nowhere and no public transportation here (Saint James City, FL). I look for a job every day and apply for at least three. I went to an interview about a month ago and there was 4 more people waiting. The guy didn't hire me because he accidentally took his keys out of his pocket and a bag of marijuana came out with it. I did not say anything, but he knew I saw it along with the girl that worked there. I have went door to door asking if they are hiring and begging for a job on my applications.

Do you a$$es think we want this and are sitting on the couch waiting for a job to knock on our door. NOT F'N NOT !!!! I couldn't even tell you what programs are on TV, that is how much I watch it.

well, as i just found out UI benefits have been extended (well, actually, what i qualify for is a state extension- they still don't know anything here in NM about a federal extension), but i have to provide 2-10 contacts (addresses, phone #'s etc.) each week before each weekly check is approved. If i don't, it goes to an “adjudicator” which may take weeks to decide whether to pay me for that week. Good enough motivator for me, have already been sending out 20-40 resumes a week for months. UI benefits (if you live in a reasonably cheap area, are single, and don't have too many bills or just are't paying them all) is enough to cover rent (hopefully), some food, some gas, some utilities, maybe a car payment or insurance. That's it. Thank god i don't own a house, but haven't paid my student loans in 18 months. It's not about “going through the interviews”, its about having an interview to go through…how many times have i had interviews set up before they email me and tell me they've decided “not to hire anyone at this time”? The last time i was unemployed a few years ago (without UI benefits) i didn't have enough gas money to get to the interviews.

Folks.

There is a lot of anger here, and I am not saying that it is not justified. On the contrary, I agree with most that is said.
Unfortunately, many do not know how the House and Senate work. Parliamentary procedure has kept many bills from even being looked at, much less considered. Republican obstructionism and intransigence has brought this country to a standstill.
THAT'S why none of the unemployed have received what they deserve, require, and PAID FOR!
Saying “vote out all incumbents” sounds good, and releases stress, but the truth is, they won't be. Not all. If you are one of those who feel this way, I urge you to look up which bills are written by whom, and vote based on that information. Then look up who voted “no” or yes” on the bills passed. THAT is the information that counts! Many incumbents are working for you, and newly elected Congresspersons and Senators will be junior members, meaning they don't have much sway, when it comes to crafting, discussing, or legislating on bills they are in commitee for.
Anger is good. Use it wisely. Do not let it overtake reason, people. That's what happened in 2000.
I know, people. I was sent to a useless war, sent there by a member of a priviledged family, to save face (there were no “WMD's”) because the leader of that country snubbed his nose at the patriarch. They went so far as to depose that leader, violating numerous international laws and UN resolutions, all because they felt their family “honor” was besmirched.
Meanwhile, back home, NOTHING was invested in infrastructure, deregulation caused the outsourcing of thousands of American jobs, YOUR jobs, Corporations were allowed free reign to do as they pleased, Wall Street, too, at a tune of BILLIONS of dollars, YOUR dollars, to line the pockets of a “fortunate” few.
All this was done by one party. I think you know who. Now we have teabaggers, who are no more than the extremist wing of that party. This “subsidiary” would strip you of Social Security, Medicare, They are already stripping you of UI benefits, benefits YOU PAID FOR! They want nothing done to save the Gulf, or look to alternate energy sources. Look folks, do you know what happens when we run out of oil? do you know what the social and economic costs will be? If you think it's bad now………

Do you really want them back in power?

For those who had their voting rights taken away, find out how to get them restored. In most states there is a provision for restoration. Call your friends and family and be sure they vote and why. The unemployed don't have to suffer as they have. They can organize into a political power and get their rights. Finally, I hope each of you find suitable jobs soon.

I am not against helping other nations but you need to take care of your own first…ban exporting our jobs, ban importing of those products that took our jobs and the american dream away…all because they can get cheaper labor, eventually there will be no more middle class only rich folks and poor folks. and I am a poor folk

Trace you are so very right, maybe this country should start looking out for its own for a change. I never remember hearing of a huge telethon here for the homeless hungary and unemployed like we did for Haiti. Im so sick of hearing the republicans say we are lazy! we work 18 years on the same job and get laid off of no fault of our own! there are 9 people for any one job opening, these assholes in DC are rich every one of them! They need to put an average Joe in a sneators seat if we want anything accomplished. I still 5 times a week email senators and nancy pelosi and anyone who will listen. Dont vote Harry Reid but defianately all, vote democrat everywhere. Every position, senators congressman and governors!! They will get the message! God bless us all, give us the strength to carry on. And to trace nice to see you back with us, no home phone right now have to email Angie555

I was unable to certify all of these weeks, so maybe, with any luck, the State of TN is starting to get on the ball. But I am not holding my breath. Their recordings have goofed up before, so we shall see if I receive my first check after a month and a half shows up in the mailbox. Hoping all of you get a check real soon.

I was told to keep filing which i have done faithfully with work search contacts. I got the letter stating that i qualified for another 5 months of unemployment after i returned from being out of state. I offered to provide death certificates and airline reservations. I have just been told that i have been denied the whole claim and that my appeal will not be heard for 8 months – YES EIGHT F***ING MONTHS – if im still alive then. I think i will take the last $1500 that i have to my name and apply for overseas teaching jobs. I have lost ANY faith i have in this F***ing country.

I know everyone is mad about this situation, and it is not easy to deal with, but don't be bashing people because they cannot find a job. And don't bash someone because they have a job. They were just lucky enough to hold a position that was not affected by this economy. They should feel very fortunate and not chastise others for their hardships. We all live on this planet together, lets act like that. I would imagine most of you that are bashing each other are Christian. Well this type of behavior is not very Christian like.

All tasks that need doing.
Once we were payed a living wage for the care and concern we applied to each small individual contribution.

Actually, if you tax the wealthy, they might just put money back into their business instead of keeping it for their own ostentacious ego display. After all, if a rich person uses extra money to improve and build a business, they still own the business which now has more employees and they don't have to pay taxes on personal profit, right? That may be why, when the wealthy have a higher tax rate, the economy does much better. When they have a lower tax rate, the country flounders. Check it out.

Again some interesting reading. This helps with my stand that the Republicans are out of touch with We The People. Take a look at Sen. Hatch of Utah's financial statement.. 35 pages long and scan through his assets. This is why he had no problem thinking We The People could survive with no money for 4 – 8 weeks

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/c…

There were two Republicans who took our side they were Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe they voted with the Democrats allowing the unemployment extension to pass without these two Senators we would still be without money.
Now take a look at Sen Susan Collins financial statement Thee Pages …. This Says It All

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/c…

we need representation by Senators and House Members that are actually in touch with We The People.. Vote Vote all Republicans out of office send a clear message They took a stand against us lets take a stand against them. By the way they try to justify this by saying it is the Presidents fault for not wanting the funds to come out of the Stimulus but adding to the deficit..come on tell me the actual difference We owe the money anyway you look at it..

Dear dash I have to assume you are very young and can only judge by your experience. The people who are unemployed today are not what was in the past. We were the working middle class making 40,000 – 70.000 a year. We did not and do not need incentives to go to work. We need the jobs availalbe. My brother has worked since he was 16 as a machinist he has never been without a job for 45 straight years. The job he was layed off from he at been there for 35 years yes 35 years he assumed he would be there until he was old enough to retire. He made good money but worked 10-12 hour days, not easy. My husband has been a CDL truck driver for the last 10 years he did change jobs but was continually employed with out a week lost. The company he was layed off from he had been there for 5 years. and another point unemployment in no way gives us the money we were making. It just pays the main bills. You hope the electric company will let you go another month so you can pay your rent or mortgage. Forget about car, health and life insurances they have all been canceled for non-payment. we will just have to drive un-insured cars.. It is very bad out here. My husband's resumes go out weekly remember he has 10 years with over a million miles with no speeding no accidents etc. He does not even get calls. For the truckers to work there has to be freight. A store only needs freight if people have money to purchase..No One Has Any Money = no jobs

Luis Vuitton you are right. People say why can't you just work at McDonalds the problem is this will not give us enough money to pay bills. If you are young and just starting out as I believe Dash is that is not problem. But if you have worked in careers for over 20 years that are not possible. We already worked for less than a dollar an hour we did all this. We are not rich but had been living comfortably working and paying our bills we do not like this and we did not cause this.


Unemployment Insurance : : On joblessness - Insurance Today
Pingback posted August 4, 2010 @ 6:17 am

[...] Besides, if we really want to build a sustainable society, maybe we should slow down at least a LITTLE.  Many mistakes in the world of the Producers are caused when jobs are rushed. Economy Reality Check: Make Full Employment Job One By Robert Borosage  July 28, 2010 – 1:46pm ET Washington is enmeshed in the economic version of the phony war. The two sides have declared war on one another, but neither has faced up to the fierce battles yet to come. Too few seem aware of the staggering challenges that face this country. Here is a summary of the carnage wrought by the Great Recession summarized by the Economist from a Pew study (H/T to nakedcapitalism.com): More than half of all workers have experienced a spell of unemployment, taken a cut in pay or hours or been forced to go part-time. The typical unemployed worker has been jobless for nearly six months. Collapsing share and house prices have destroyed a fifth of the wealth of the average household. Nearly six in ten Americans have cancelled or cut back on holidays. About a fifth say their mortgages are underwater. One in four of those between 18 and 29 have moved back in with their parents. Fewer than half of all adults expect their children to have a higher standard of living than theirs, and more than a quarter say it will be lower.. for many Americans the great recession has been the sharpest trauma since the second world war, wiping out jobs, wealth and hope itself. Stop and consider the implications. Then add the fact that continuing high levels of unemployment are now the consensus forecast. Long term unemployment will remain at record levels. In the U.S., where we provide only temporary support for the unemployed, this is a social catastrophe. Families break apart; drug use and despair increase; community institutions decline; domestic violence, racial and anti-immigrant hostility soar. The young graduating into this economy are likely to fare worsethroughout their work lives. In this context, the Washington debate seems particularly puerile. The business and financial elites are rolling out an attack on Obama as anti-business, accusing him of demonizing corporations. Given Obama’s preternatural equanimity, the charge is risible. And utterly dishonest. (See for example, Paul Krugman’s takedown of the latest screed by real estate mogul Mort Zuckerman, who Breitbarted an Obama quote, utterly distorting it to make his point.) Republicans have returned to their supply-side fantasies, arguing that top end tax cuts won’t add to deficits, while filibustering against unemployment insurance and any jobs program. But we tried it their way in the Bush years. Deficit spending driven by top end tax cuts and wars produced a bubble economy, scarred by no jobs growth, stagnant wages, growing inequality, growing debt, and borrowing of $2 billion a day from abroad, largely from Chinese central bankers. And that was before the bubble burst. Surely, they have to offer something different. Democrats, in contrast, believe the Recovery Act worked to save an economy in free fall, but wasn’t big enough to put people back to work. So they call for more jobs initiatives, plus extension of unemployment supports as well as aid to cash strapped states to forestall layoffs of teachers and police. But, divided internally, with Blue Dogs focused on deficits, they’ve been reduced to offering up bite-sized legislative morsels not close to what is needed to address the problem. more The Unemployed, Organized Online, Look to the Midterms Jobless Workers Look to Shift Elections By ANNIE LOWREY 7/28/10 6:15 AM Sometime this spring, Republicans turned against unemployment. In Nevada, Sharron Angle (R), the candidate facing incumbent Sen. Harry Reid (D), told local reporters, “You can make more money on unemployment than you can going down and getting one of those jobs that is an honest job.” (Untrue.) Angle also called the unemployed “spoiled.” Rand Paul, a candidate for a Kentucky Senate seat, made similar statements, and politicians in Washington followed suit. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said on C-SPAN that extending unemployment would discourage “individuals that are out there to actually go out and go through the interviews.” But unlike most comments from politicians, these criticisms did not diffuse into the generic noise of political chatter. They began reverberating in what might be termed the unemployed netroots — a system of highly trafficked, influential blogs and sites connecting the jobless and updating them, often in minute detail, about the ins and outs of Congress’ work on unemployment issues. When Jordan, a former programmer living in Nevada, lost his position with a local university, he began sending out resumes, but he also found himself following the eight-month battle for an unemployment extension closely — each failed Senate vote, each new House proposal. (He requested I withhold his last name to avoid impeding his job search.) Online, he started surfing list-servs, posting on message boards and using resources from the unemployed. A few times, he has worked up the courage to call his legislators’ offices. Jordan has searched hard for a job and is now considering moving away from his family for a few months, if it means he can send home a paycheck. “I have voted Republican my entire life,” he says. “I don’t want to vote for Harry Reid. But I don’t want to be told I’m lazy, and I’m dumb, and I’m living high on the hog, collecting [unemployment insurance] because I want to.” more [...]

Snowe and Collins did not take your side. They got bribed with extra help for Bath Iron Works. It seems the Senate only works through bribery. But, the unemployment extension was passed 7/22 and was unpaid for even though there are excess TARP funds which could have been used.

Yesterday's bill, which Collins and Snowe, wee bribed to vote for is also unfunded and primarily is designed to give to school teachers and their unions.

company lay off rehired as part time pay cut 1/3 same work same company hours cut to 2-3 day work week . The other employees who did not git laid off still get 100 % of pay they did not get a pay cut. Bottom line is that to save money the company laid off employees so that they could rehire them break a contract and force them into cobra or no insurance at all .

Young I can accept, but successful not so much. You sound very smug and slightly stupid. We are not living off the government, the government is living off of us. I have been employed my entire adult life and paid taxes on every penny earned. Since I am NOT on any food stamps, state run health care and never have been for over 35 years. I feel perfectly fine accepting my money back for services I rendered by paying my taxes, which supported your education, your families retirement and social security and of course paid the salary of the idiots in office.. Plus unemployment for thousands of United States citizens over the years.
So Dash, if you plan on staying successful, GROW UP and look at today's business climate, because yours is the generation to lose if you don't. It won't be the pitiful amounts being paid today that will affect your success it will be my generations not being able to continue to earn a living that will make your life a living hell. By the way you really, really sound uninformed, and slightly spoiled. Not a pretty combination in an adult.

General comment regarding DASH and his remarks. How many people think his parents are first cousins? And other questions, if he is so successful why is he taking time to follow this site for over 3 days? The only job I can think of the would give him enough time and be stupid enough to pay him to do this at work is maybe the RNC, his spelling certainly fits their hiring requirements. There is something wrong here, he is too off in his responses to be real. So here is ether in prison, or with the RNC. Both are good possibilities, but I have to go with the cousins theory .

Oh so after 35 years of whatever you were doing, you didn't back up enough money to take care of yourself…thats why you need the govt to take care of you. No loser I'm sure you did not pay anywhere near the amount in taxes that could justify collecting 99 weeks of that free money. Anybody that could pay that much in taxes would have made a bunch of money…unfortunately that doesn't sound like you.

Well actually I did make a lot of money, I also sent my children to college, supported my Mother and Aunt until they passed away, my husband had pancreatic cancer. So yes I should have more money, but instead I had the love of 3 very special people and now I have children who are helping me. So before you talk about your family and how successful they are be thankful instead of such a moronic little piss ant. By the way I was a banker. I trained international traders for Chase, Bank of Hawaii and Security Pacific, before they were all sold or blended. I then worked for a savings and loan in which my stock was my retirement. Problem was the government closed them for bad loans and I lost everything. So now you know how an old broad needs unemployment. You can kiss my A##

Folks, don't talk to Da$h. Das$h is a “troll,” someone who makes sport of insulting people on discussion threads. Trying to retort intelligently is like trying to to reason with a flat tire. You won't bring a troll around to seeing your point of view, because a troll doesn't care about the issue in the first place. You might as well retort to ignorant comments scrawled on bathroom walls. The time and effort would be better spent writing representatives. Some may call that a waste of time, but not any more than trying to influence a troll. Don't let this disrespectful little prick derail the discussion or get a rise out of you. Life is full of lessons; Da$h will get educated one way or another, so take comfort in that. Now let's rescue our country from the disastrous corporate law that has made this catastrophe not only possible but inevitable: corporations aren't “greedy,” they are required by law to maximize profits in every way possible, no matter how immoral, unsustainable, or unconscionable. We have to change the law.

I had a call back today for an interview, I was thrilled. Small company needed a bookkeeper. There were 8 people there 3 were men, my age and the rest were young women. I was 4th in line. The first in was one of the gentlemen, his interview was less then 15 minutes, the next was a young women. She was nice very attractive and a college grad, her interview was 73 minutes. I at first thought that the first guy was not educated enough or had no financial background for the position. After waiting for over 2 1/2 hours I was lead into the interview. The interviewer was about 23 years old. Very professional and knew her stuff, but I could tell that I was not what they were expecting. It had nothing to do with my experience or education, it had to do with my age. It was not mentioned or eluded too but I could see it in her eyes. She felt sorry for me. She told me that they will hold my resume and contact me by mail in 4 weeks. Sorry to say, I don't feel that I will be receiving any mail. I am only 59 and a young 59 at that, I broke my arm last year roller skating. All of a sudden I am out of the loop. It hurts….

well think of it this way.. they are going to experience more absentee time with the 23 yr.old or just lack of work being done when the woman sits and gossips with the other co-workers. Hang in there, if you have the education and experience that you are talking about, you will land a job. I know what you are going through.I am 53 yrs. old. I am having the same problem. These companies are getting away with age discrimination legally. The gov't would do right, if they were to give companies incentives to hire 50+ age workers. Then see how fast companies scramble to get their quota…

The government isn't going to do anything for us. It would involve them admitting that age discrimination is alive and well in America. I am not really angry at the younger workers, when I first started in banking I was the 23 year old new to New York, working on Wall St. I was a bit full of myself. We both know it will pass, what I am concerned about is the fact that we are to young to collect Social Security, no small children so we have no access to any county services. I am very scared. But I am also very angry, I will be watching all of the incumbents of both parties across the country and I will email, call everyone one I know to get out and vote. I call it the one womens IDIOT'S BE GONE campaign. I have had enough of the back room games. It is time we took our country back form crooks and thieves.

You think it's just the crazies who are buying up guns and lots of ammunition? What's going to happen when the millions of unemployed all become 99rs?
Millions upon millions of people without jobs who have exhausted all of their resources, foreclosed, living in states that have also exhausted their food stamp money. Your kids haven't eaten in three days and the local food pantry is out of food. All of your friends and relative are in similar straits. You'll do what you must do. Survive.
Or maybe, we unite and vote out the republicans and vote for democrats who are almost as bad but at least they'll vote to extend unemployment to us.
Either way, we will do whatever is necessary to survive unless and until things get better and jobs are again available.

In other words, cut some of that bs pork barrel spending to compensate for the unemployment funds. It's called being responsible with your finances. We can send billions of $$ to Hati, Pakistan and other 3rd world countries but we won't even take care of our own. $18 trillion stimulus and all the dems can say is “we saved jobs”. Yeah, they saved jobs… They saved them for the Chinese when that long legged mac daddy sitting in the White House sold our nation to them… Some of you people better wake up and smell the coffee.

You`re facilitating the problem. If you give an animal or person ample food supply, they will reproduce, especially ones that don`t think too of further than that. And so, what you got to do is you got to curtail that type of behavior. They don`t know any better.

What is wrong with this hateful party of ‘NO’…?

The 10 Most Absurd Pork Barrel Spending Items of 2010

10) $1,000,000 for the Sewall-Belmont House in Washington, D.C

9) $250,000 for a wireless network for the city of Hartselle, Alabama.

$225,000 for the St. Louis Art Museum Foundation.

7) $2.5 million for potato research.

6) $500,000 for brown tree snake control and interdiction in Guam.

5) $4.8 million for wood utilization research.

4) $693,000 for beef improvement research in Missouri and Texas.

3) $7.2 million to the Harkin Grant Program.

2) $7 million to the Robert C. Byrd Institute

1) $17 million for the International Fund for Ireland (IFI).

No, I don't have it wrong. I'm not taking up for the Republicans. They are just as wasteful as the Democrats. None of them are fit to call themselves servers of the people. They are all self serving politicians living above and beyond the American dream and doing so on our tax dollars. I say it's time for all of them to go!!.

Your right but the time to make changes is at primaries…..

The country needs to learn to educated themselves and hold their Senators up to do their jobs…..

There are plenty of government programs that could be cut I agree. And we shouldnt be sending money overseas while most of us are out here going homeless….
