Unemployment Extension Bill for 99ers Would Add Fifth Tier of Benefits

By
Thursday, August 05, 2010 at 11:55 am

Yesterday, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) introduced a bill to provide extra weeks of federally paid-for unemployment insurance benefits for the 99ers — the pool of 1.4 million Americans workers who have exhausted their maximum weeks of federal and state benefits.

The Americans Want to Work Act brings the maximum number of weeks to 119 in states with unemployment rates above 7.5 percent, meaning 34 states and the District of Columbia would currently qualify. (As of now, the states with unemployment rates over 8 percent qualify for the federal extension.) It also bolsters a tax credit for companies that hire workers who have been unemployed for more than two months.

Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Bob Casey (Pa.), Chris Dodd (Conn.), Dick Durbin (Ill.), Carl Levin (Mich.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Harry Reid (Nev.), Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) are cosponsors.

“Across our state, more than 35,000 people who have lost their jobs have also exhausted their unemployment insurance benefits. I know that these men and women want to work and have been trying their best to find jobs in this difficult economy,” Stabenow said in a statement. “My legislation cuts taxes for businesses that hire new workers who have been looking for work the longest. My bill also provides 20 more weeks of unemployment insurance to people in states like ours with the highest number of people out of work.”

The Tier V bill will prove popular among many, particularly the 99ers and the unemployed. But it will face a real uphill battle in the Senate. First, it needs the approval of the Senate Finance Committee, headed by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.). He has previously voiced opposition to Tier V. “You can’t go on forever,” he told Bloomberg News in April. “I think 99 weeks is sufficient.”

If the bill makes it out of committee, a process that can take weeks, it will need to get through a Senate allergic to deficit spending and increasingly recalcitrant on expanding programs for the jobless. Virtually all Republicans as well as Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) have indicated they will not vote for any expansion that increases the deficit. The full text of Stabenow’s bill has not yet been released, nor has the Congressional Budget Office scored it. But Stabenow’s release did not indicate the bill is offset, and cuts are increasingly hard to find. (This week, the Senate trimmed a food stamp extension to pay for a state-aid bill to keep up Medicaid funding and to save teachers’ jobs.)

Previously, Senate aides have told me that while numerous Senate Democrats support the fifth tier and other programs for the long-term unemployed, they hesitated to bring forward a bill they felt would never pass. The House, rather than expanding weeks of benefits, is looking at measures like expanding the TANF Emergency Contingency Fund.

“That was put in place after the recession hit to help states, basically to aid them in subsidizing jobs,” Ed Shelleby, spokesperson for Rep. Jim McDermott, told me. “It has hugely bipartisan support.”

Nevertheless, many labor economists feel the government needs to be doing more to help the jobless — and many legislators and Americans agree. Unemployment is worse now than it has been since the Great Depression. And the problem is not the height of the unemployment rate, but the duration of joblessness. Never before have unemployed workers been out of a job for so many weeks — a sign of fierce competition in the labor market, and the slowdown in the recovery.

The unemployed, already organized online, have recently joined with labor unions and other groups to lobby the Senate for increased benefits.

Im just waiting for a group to form so i can join and we can have another tea party. when its over.. no congress will be in office.. we will go back to how the constitution deemed it. their health care and retirement package will be based on what we the people get. as it stands now they can have anything go wrong and its fully paid for .. for life. no more.

im just waiting and watching for the right person to lead us back to what america was ment to be and not what these traitors have turned it into.

they took our jobs and sent them over seas. they knew what would happen and they profited off of it. now that we are in a depression caused by them they stick their noses up at us. let that stew in your stomach. organize people. not with letters and comments on the internet. pull together and organize. this country was founded by christians and god played a huge part in it. they took god out of it. they are traitors to the people of the united states. so ya i do agree.. take up arms and take back our country. take it away from congress from corporations and most importantly from the buildergurgs. (federal reserve that isnt really a federal building)

but for those of you that just want to read and wait.. at the least .. come november vote em all out

Remember in November!!

My husband is amongst the 99ers. We have 3 in college, 1 in high school and 1 in middle school. We have used all of our savings and 401K. We don't even show up on the unemployment statistics anymore, and their are many in the same position we are. We've paid our taxes faithfully for many years, we need the system there for us now.

Thank the real US politicians who care about their public! This bill needs to be passed and retroactive to when all the 99ers lost their income so they can catch up on passed bills! Any polotician in any state who does not support this bill should be noted. As another commentor stated, it's time for a revolution! The wealthy have gotten fat enough on outsourceing else where to other countries and buying their poloticians to support it. If anyone doubts me, just do some extensive reasearch into the Bush family and how much they were in bed with the Oil tycoons. Both Bush administrations! Father and Son! And can you believe it? Our Tax dollars keep paying for their family protection with the secret service! Wow…thoes tax dollars for their protection would feed a LOT of American families? Does anyone remember that the last Bush sat and read a book to kindergarners long after he was informed of the attack on the US. What president would do that if he didn't know that was coming? Do you really want to keep spending your tax dollars to protect him? It's time, either our elected officials stand up and support makeing sure all of the unemployed in the US are at least thrown a safty net now and retro to when they really needed it or I agree with the past writer, it's time for a revolution! After all, there are hundredes and hundres of Military people out there that know how to organize and impliment this. I'm sure that some of them have suffered the lost much more than the average American and is now willing to do so? It's just a matter of time before they understand that the average American has no recourse and are becoming homeless and have lost everything in their lives and are willing to follow them! Do we all want to keep electing the ones who don't support making sure our US citizens are care for into office? Cut and paste the list of Representatives who do endorse taking care of their American Citizens and paste it to a message asking your elected official why they don't support it and then do some reallly extensive research into what they have supported and see if they are in the pocket of the wealthy and rich to do their bidding, and above all, remember the ones who don't support this bill being passed! Pass this bill today and throw a life line to all Americans who need it! Write you local Reps. Paste this list and ask why they wouldn't want to support a bill that will benifit their own constituents?

To some degree, Baucus is right, you can't go on forever. Unless, of course, the current economy has one job for every five people looking for work. In extraordinary times we need extraordinary help from congress.

If you are a 99er or someone that has lost your benefits due to the Senate sitting on their hands. You can’t just blame the GOP. Yes they have blocked everything but there is a way to stop them blocking those issues. Senator Stabenow has a new bill for the 99ers but says she won’t offer it until after they go on break. That is what I am talking about, vacation is more important. Pelosi is calling the house back in case the Senate passes a bill for State workers (teachers, police and fireman). So Pelosi is showing toughness but Reid wants his vacation.

To make them (GOP) pass a benefit package for the 99ers and anyone that has lost their benefits the Democrats can force them to not go home until it is done. They also blocked a Small Lending bill for small business from community banks, this was a lending bill to create jobs and didn’t add a dime to the deficit. So that needs passed before one of them goes for over a month vacation. So when I say it just isn’t the GOP it is Harry Reid also he could be tough. If he thought it is more important for those that have lost than those that have allot and are going on vacation.

So flood Harry Reids phone lines and fax machines until he gets the message. If you don’t help then you have no right to complain. Here are the contact numbers:

Washington: Phone # 1-202-224-3542 Fax# 1-202 – 224-7327

Las Vegas: Phone # 1-702-388-5020 Fax# 1-702-388-5030

Carson City: Phone# 1-775-883-7343 Fax# 1-775-883-1980

Reno: Phone# 1-775-686-5770 Fax# 1-775-686-5757

Do not call if you do not have a calling plan that lets you call anywhere in the US without being charged for long distance. Use that money for your family. The rest of us have no excuse to complain then do nothing. Remember they go home for vacation Friday the 6th so call and call and call till then. If he does go on vacation without fixing these issues then flood those state lines more. By the way I am not a 99er but believe they paid their taxes and help build our country and now need our help.

I'm a 99er and have been for what feels like a very very long time .I too have sold everything i had to sell and have borrowed all i can . I feel for all of you out there that are going through what i am going through. we must be strong and accept this humbling time as a grate lesson of how much our government really cares about us. If we work hard and pay in we should be able to reap what we sow. I have worked for more than 11 years without collecting one cent, And i know many people that have worked much longer than I , And now that we need the help the same help that we paid for with our years of payment in to the unemployment insurance, it means nothing .
99 weeks max to collect is set in but no max on how much we pay in is set .Why is it that after every year our totals means nothing? All we want is to have money to eat, pay our bills, put gas in our cars or have money for the bus to be able to go out and look for work .It is a fact that the monies given back to us will end up in our community , And its a fact that it helps local business so they don't have to close there doors , and add to the numbers of the unemployed .We paid in shouldn't it count for something now that we need it .how can we be forgotten if one day you to can be standing in the the same place as I and many hard workers A.K.A the “99ers”stand now .I like many others never expected to be laid off for this long, and neither will you .so please help your fellow man so when the day comes we can help you. All our cries should not be ignored look at how many people are below my comment and above , we all are being hit harder than we believed possible and our monies are still caught up in the red tape… thank you for letting me vent and taking the time to read this from a 99er.

These sick bastards better hop to it or anarchy will follow. Until they fix what they broke for the money it made them they better do what they did for their banking cronies and that is keep the people afloat which can be done through the same channels as TARP and the fed reserve. The people deserved it before the ones that caused the mess and did it with impunity from the law and also gave each other bonuses and lavish parties to celebrate their heist on the backs of us and our children. The extension should be in place until the rate is back to where it was before the government and the bankers got together and committed these atrocities! If the unemployment problem is fixed in 20 week fine…if not they need to be in place until it is.

i have had to call 311 for emergency housing in chicago….I was told that it would pay two monthe security and first months rent. I have a parttime job commision and have not made a dime. The subsidy would allow me to pay a portion of my rent. So i found a place and sold the landlord on the program. Fine. The agency came out an approved the place. I moved in. The rep for the company promised the landlord the check will be in a week..no check and countless calls, no one can tell me or him when the check is coming. He said today that if the check is not here by monday i have to move. he does not want to work with the program. I have depression, lost sleep, loss weight ,headaches and my asthma attacks are more frequent. My family is small and my friends are few and are unemployed as well. There extended families are without jobs too. So i have very little to turn too. I call 311 and now the problem is bigger. My things are in storage. I had to move on an emergency due to eviction. I used the last emergency saving to do this, with hopes that i am reimbursed. The agency will not cut a check for the storage or the movers to move my things to my new apartment. There were a few things left in my apartment for me to use. I am in a terrible way. Jack,

This is not a bill for the 99ers. This is a bill for the Democrats. Perfect timing, with elections and all in a few months.
If it was a bill for the 99ers, it would have drafted long ago, it would be retroactive, and 99ers would not have to wait another six months for it to be implemented. Let's see, the road ahead.
A couple of months bickering between parties and of course many news ops, photo ops, opportunities to raise campaign funds, etc….and then a vote.
If it passes, a month or two for the Labor Dept. to give out implementation instructions to each state.
And don't forget each state will probably have to spend millions and millions more dollars upgrading the same computer systems they spent millions and millions upgrading the last time – what was that a year or so ago and just how many time have they done that already? Who's milking who?
And then and only then after the computer work is completed will the states send out letter to people letting them know they have to reapply all over again. Gee, is that some sort of delay tactic so the states can hang on to the money as long as possible and collect the interest on it? Who gets to pocket that anyway and where exactly has that money gone- how many times now? Weeks after that funds may finally be available for some of the 99ers who so desperately need it. It's all so funny how all of a sudden we get a bill now, and there is again no rush to get the benefits out to the 99ers who are so desperate and have lost their homes and who cannot put food on the table after thousands and thousands of job applications. Come November, no matter what happens, this Democrat will be voting each and every incumbent out!

Actually, all of us who were dropped fell off the unemployment statistics. That is how they keep manipulating the numbers to show unemployment is “going down”. This is false. The only reasons the numbers show a decrease is because we fell off the count and the 1 month census jobs.

Harry Reid sent the Senate home till 9-13-10 without a 99er bill or the Small Business bill. Help remove Reid as leader of the Senate.

If you are a 99er or someone that has lost your benefits due to the Senate sitting on their hands. You can’t just blame the GOP. Yes they have blocked everything but there is a way to stop them blocking those issues. Senator Stabenow has a new bill for the 99ers but says she won’t offer it until after they go on break.

They also blocked a Small Lending bill for small business from community banks, this was a lending bill to create jobs and didn’t add a dime to the deficit. So that needs passed before one of them goes for over a month vacation. So when I say it just isn’t the GOP it is Harry Reid also he could be tough. If he thought it is more important for those that have lost than those that have allot and are going on vacation.

Do not call if you do not have a calling plan that lets you call anywhere in the US without being charged for long distance. Use that money for your family. The rest of us have no excuse to complain then do nothing. Remember they go home for vacation Friday the 6th so call and call and call till then. If he does go on vacation without fixing these issues then flood those state lines more. By the way I am not a 99er but believe they paid their taxes and help build our country and now need our help.

I am so stressed knowing that I have lost almost everything I own. Being unemployed is so difficult because each day I lose hope. I made a good salary in 2008, today, I have $2 in my wallet and my home is in foreclosure. We need to vote these fat cats out of office. Our jobs moved overseas and Washighton has lost the ability to care about the middle class. We need to kick some butt and overhaul our current legal system. The unemployed should have been helped months ago. We need a bill past by Senate TODAY.

Many of the unemployed accepted jobs that do not pay enough to support their families. People with Master degrees are working in mimium wage positions so the National Unemployment Rate is actually much higher. Many stopped looking and were forced to move in with family. The economy is worst than the monthly job reports indicate. Many families that were middle class, now are living in low class, proverty levels. We want jobs and pay that is decent enough to pay our bills without living off relatives or friends. The unemployed have pride and should not feel they are taking welfare. We paid taxes for decades. We are not lazy and loosing a job is one of the most difficult events in someones life. Stay strong and unite to get our jobs back. Washington is selfish. Vote the heartless politicans who refused to help to unemployed out of office. Most of them are over 50 years old. Maybe, they will be forced to live hand and mouth someday. They get so many special perks and get paid too much for the little work they do for the citizens they represent. Vote them out!

Hi I am from North Carolina, I am a 99er who has been without benefits for the last 12 weeks. It is so hard now, not knowing if there will be food on the table or being able to pay the light bill. I went to school graduated with honors, made the Phi Theta Capa Society, the National Honor Society and Deans list each semister, but what has it got me for sure not a job yet, but I sstill am looking, i don't want to give up yet. I still have hope and faith that God will answer our prayers and make things right again. But for our Congress. I hope you enjoy your vacation and that you use this time to think about the way you have done the American People who put you in your comfy jobs cause you are going to lose them come November. It like the people that revolted against the ways of the King and started an AMERICAN REVOLUTION. Looks like its time for us to start our own against congress. Lift up your voices to God and he will take care of the rest. Let God handle Congress. Thank you and may God bless each and everyone of us.

NO vacation during this time of extremely bad ecomonic situations such as we are experiencing now. We want to work and have been kicked around by our leaders too long.

Baucus is right, “we can't go on forever,” but we also can't let more than a million and a half people just fall off a cliff either. 99'ers aren't just coasting, riding out unemployment, these are people looking diligently for work and there are no jobs. This is also effecting our credit scores, and employers are checking on them before hiring. These added weeks are going for rent, buy food, pay bills, and buy gas, all essentials needed to survive. Social Service agencies and religious organizations are overwhelmed with requests for assistance from those in need. We cannot wait until November, they can't make us wait….

The 99ers should be helped with an extension! Actually, unemployment should not stop at all until the economy gets back to were it should be! A cut in senates-congress pay would help the unemployment, but they don't want to feel the crunch that we without jobs. They need to know how it feels to wonder if your going to lose your house, how to pay for bills, get food, pay insurance that they now say everybody needs. They keep making bills that cost us more, but how are we suppose to pay for them when we don't get unemployment or can't find a job.

Both my husband and I are both 99'ers. We lost our jobs by no choice of ours, they simply just closed their doors! Mine, due to lack of children (pre-school teacher) and my husbands, the owner was in bankruptcy. One day the sherrif came and told everyone they had 15 minutes to gather their OWN belongings, and that was it!
The government hasn't even thought about all of us. Most of us have gone through our life savings, our credit scores are dropping trying to juggle the bills.. We have sold a car, took in a boarder, to help. We cannot get food stamps because we still have $682 in the bank. I guess to proud to qualify for welfare and DO NOT want to give up our home.
We are not lazy, there are NOT any jobs out there. For every resume we send out, I think we got called back on three. And were over qualified??? No, I think age has something to do with it, we are both 55 years old. We can't even get a job in Wal Mart handing out stickers, too qualified???

Congress and also a president must pass a law that it will be an unemployment available until jobs are availabable. everybody keep shooting around without notice that if no jobs, unemployment will only rise. Jobs from overseas have to come back.Stop support other countries, we have our own people not to support,but make jobs available for them,so we can help others.Politician play they games all the time, but when people are hurt….Fair come from smoke…to cease fair is much harder than to cease a smoke.

Look it's very simple, there simply are not enough jobs out there for people that need them for the survival of their family. Private business is doing nothing, private industry is dead. If the private sector is not, will not, can not create jobs for the people of this country, what are the unemployed people supposed to do to survive? From the Republican point of view you are supposed to pick yourself up by the boot strap and demand a job from an employer that is not hiring, or somehow get start up money to start your own business in an economy with no demand at all for anything except smart phones. People are flooding the community colleges to learn skills that there is no or very little demand for. I'm affraid the USA is in a 20 year adjustment decline until the baby boomers are dead and gone so that the wealthy will not have to sacrafice to help take care of the large number of suffering people out there due to the greed of our financial “leaders” and our banking bastards. All you sacraficial unemployed lambs out there, just find a nice log in the woods somewhere and curl up and die, preferably out of sight of the beautiful people who are privilaged to have jobs because they really don't want to have to look at you or have to answer questions from their children about why is that man laying in the gutter like he is dead.

I believe more people abuse the welfare system than that of unemployment compensation. I have been looking and sending out resumes for months, and that includes the temporary agencies I never get jobs through either. I still see very little advertised lately its not about what you know, but who you know. Sending jobs over seas and paying CEOs and COOs over 200k doesn't help. If you are on here complaining about the amount of unemployed you should be helping them to find jobs. I apply at places people suggest to me, even though I get the same…thank you for applying but we're considering other people crap. The problem comes down to too many people are going after the same jobs, that includes those even at McDonalds. Most places aren't hiring even with a potential added incentive to employ those who have been collecting unemployment.

Want the solution to America’s economic woes? It's really very simple.

1) Seal off the borders, shut down the ports. STOP imorting finished goods from overseas and Mexico, becaus such is a) shipping our jobs out of the US causing the massive layoffs in the manufacturing sector b) exporting our national wealth to foreign nations. c) breaking the backbone of our economy. It’s time for America to look out for America. If it’s not made in America, get it OFF OUR STORE SHELVES!

2) As an alternative to stopping all the importing, Congress could levy HUGE, HUGE import taxes to where the price of the imported product would match or exceed American made, then use these imports to pay the unemployed Americans the greedy corporate leaders have put out of work!

3) HEAVILY TAX US companies who reduce operations in America to move production overseas and those profiting greatly from importing such as Wal Mart. They too are evil traitors as they built their company on the motto, “Made in America.” Now Wal Mart is the Import KING!

4) Place greedy corporate leaders who move operations overseas on trial for TREASON, as these are traitors whose GREED is detroying the very fabric of our economy! Anybody, person or corporation that causes harm to America is a TRAITOR and should be tried and convicted as such!!! Make no mistake, it will take an act of Congress to correct the problem! And Congress won'r act because the greedy rich are who sponsor their campaigns and line the politician's wallet !!!

5) Bin Laden has probably been cremated and ashes spread over the desert. Our forces are chasing a ghost with war costs that are also breaking our economy. Abandon the war effort against this faceless enemy. The war is too costly if it helps to financially break our nation.

6) Ban same sex marriages NATIONWIDE! God destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah for homosexuality. Are our national leaders so IGNORANT that they think God will let the US skate free for the same offenses?

If you love America, ask you Congressmen (women) to introduce and support legislation to address these issues. If Congress doesn't act SOON our nation and economy WILL COLLAPSE! That is the prophetic writing on the wall!

Our government helps so many people, illegals to break the law, other countries, with food, medical aide, fight their wars, and at the expense of us Americans, yet here we are, the highest uemployment rate in ourt country, and the politicans are saying 99 weeks of unemplayment is enough!!!!! BS, they can pay their mortages, bills, and car notes….they don't worry about getting their water, electricity cut off. Those of you who have jobs, you don't really realize the effect it has on people like me, who after 25 years on the same job, was let go, and at age 53, won't get hired due to my age. Can't get my social security, or medi-cal, or food stamps. I may lose my home, car and have to cash out my 401….just to survive, and when I can retire, my social security may just be gone.

Congress needs to get the picture….USA IS IN NEED OF HELP!!!!!! DOSE ANY OF THEM GIVE A SHIT?

I am tired LISTENING TO IDIOTS WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE REAL PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, TRYING TO FREAKIN' SURVIVE, BY THE SKIN OF THEIR TEETH.

This is A REAL PROBLEM FOR US THAT HAVE WORKED ALL OF OUR LIVES, PAID OUR TAXES, AND FREAKIN' PAID FOR OUR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE…..25 YEARS WORTH, AND I GET IN RETURN IS 99WKS…..Is this fair, in an econmoy of today!!!!!

What's America Made Of?

Were you to pose the question, of what's America made?

I'd say that we the people, stand together, strong, but frayed.

We've fought for those unable, not to conquer or control.

Not impose on them, our ways, but give back, what others stole.

Our freedom, bought by others, payed for, with so many tears.

For their honor, struggle we, since four score and seven years.

Not so much, from whence we came, immigrants all, we once were.

Rather should we question, why? All ill wishers, to deter.

For our kindness and our laws, what we love may come undone.

Should we fail to remember, September 2001.

For those who'd come for better, will there always, be a place.

Beware, any saboteur, will reveal a diff'rent face.

Things we often have to do, may unjust, at first appear.

Thankful for the USA, but for they, we now are here.

We've no imposed religion, happyness may you pursue.

But should our ways contradict, then your country waits for you. you.

Fifty great states united, under one flag, flying high.

Our constitution written, for the people, of and by.

The symbols of our freedom, stand for all thats fair and just.

Our flag, red white and blue and the words “In God we trust”.

Eleven score,fourteen years, since our fathers did decree.

That we equal, are all men, we the people, still are free.

Ask not, of America, but instead, what can I do?

To ensure none died in vain, for the freedom given you.

So long as we draw breath, we won't ever go away.

To protect and persevere, please, God bless the USA!!

Let freedom ring, no harm come, this great nation we so love.

Abundance, pride, our hope and faith, is what America's made of.

William “Greg”ory Tice

I love it when people say, “we're deadbeats wanting a welfare handout!” I applied for a shipping job that paid $11 per hour and there was over 200 applicants. Part-time secretary's job at the church paying $9 had over 93 applicants. We've got REAL problems in this country. The gap between rich and poor continues to widen. We've a REPUBLICAN house member representing our district which has the highest unemployment in the entire state and he has voted NO on 3 separate unemployment extensions. “Pick yourselves up by your bootstraps and find work – deadbeats!” Pretty easy to vote “NO” on unemployment extensions when you're knocking down over a $160,000 per year. Perhaps we can find money more money to send to Haiti relief or to the Iraqi's to rebuild their country while we live on the streets.

Your story sounds like a duplicate to mine and my husbands situation. His unemployment ran out months ago, I've applied for SS disability after working since I was 16, am now 55 yrs old. We have NO income, depleted 401, savings, sold vehicles, etc. I went round and round with a food stamp case worker this morning on phone, we don't qualify for emergency food stamps. First time EVER applying for them, when it got to the point we are just about starving, and she tells me it will be 30-45 days before we know if we are approved. I told her, you tell my stomach that. And it is a shame that a TRUE American has to fight so hard and long to get assistance in this country. Her reply was, this conversation is being terminated now, you will get a letter in the mail. What the @#$@!!! Guess what, she had a foreign accent. I think I made her mad. Anyway, back to your post, it is exactly the truth and I think you need to copy it and send it to all the major news channels. I agree with you that ALL senators and representatives need to get off their high horse and live like the rest of suffering people They shouldnt get paid for their positon, they take a 2 or 3 week break every other month. Only work part time and make more money in 1 year than we make in 5 yrs. They should have to have a job outside of government and not get paid for REPRESENTING the people. That would weed out the majority of them. Then you would see who really wants to SERVE, and not just be their for themselves and all the benefits that go along with their positions. Good luck to you and yours May your life get better and improve..

my husband and I are nearing the end of our Tier 4 benefits. I don't know what we are going to do after that. And “YES” we are constantly looking for work. We even signed up with multiple temp staffing agencies in hopes of finding a job where we could get hired on full time. We both worked a couple of weeks, so the companies that we worked for could get their inventories out in time for shipping, and once that was done, we were laid off from that particular temp job. And both of us did everything legal, by contacting the Unemployment division in our state to let them know we were making money. Temp agencies have about run out of work for everyone, and no temp jobs are to be found. I don't know if it is because the companies requesting temp workers are not doing as much work or what. All I know is there is no work to be had where I live, and we won't have any money coming in to pay what bills we could pay at the end of this month.

New to the website. Have looked for work for 2 years as well. Discouraged to be sure, but I won't give up. What I don't understand is why Wall Street got a bailout; and why we spend BILLIONS of dollars in the middle east – both fighting war and providing assistance to Israel, Africa, etc. while we are HURTING here at home. It's mind boggling how representatives, like Cong. Mark Kirk voted NOT to extend unemployment comp six times, while voting to RAISE his own salary!

I agree with you Raider. I was laid off and am in my mid forties. Unfortunately, when I was laid off by my greedy corporation they replaced me with someone who made half of what I made. After six months of being unemployed I took a job making 11.00 an hour and I made almost 50,000.00 a year before I was laid off. The problem is that even though I have a job that I am grateful for I have lost everything. My car, my house, my credit, my dignity. I go to work everyday and cannot afford even the essentials, food, clothing, utilities, or even a car. I have never in my grown life begged for rides to work or to the grocery store. It's absolutely dimoralizing. I can see how one could be stuck without any unemployment benefits. How could you do anything? Apply for a job, eat, pay any amount of rent? Why in a time when we are funding wars, bank bailouts and car manufacturing bailouts can we not pay for our people to eat. It was through no fault of our own that we are in this position. The greedy corporate company's are rich and getting richer. They began outsourcing a couple of years ago and do anything to get richer and unfortunately at our expense. I believe the government made those fat cats and drove the ordinary people to near poverty. SO GOVERNMENT SHOULD FIX IT. These greedy corporate companies have killed the middle class and our government has allowed it. I do not know how any middle class family is going to make it through these next 5-10 years in the U.S.

Jw Brakebill – I Agree with most of what you said, They should also start making the Indians pay taxes the same as everyone else does, in return it could help us cut every ones taxes alittle maybe not much because the indian population is not that large, but i though we where a country where everyone is treated equally witch i haven’t seen anything showing where everyone is treated equally.

Heck i am white and they have an all black college around where i live, Why might something like that be, I mean im totally not racist but if anyone tried to open an all white or other race college it wouldn’t fly… I dunno i guess its just common sense which the government does even have any common sense.

I am a 99er, who found part time seasonal work I am 57 years old and it truly is hard to fine full-time work with 2 years off and only part time seasonal work to show for it. I look forward to returning to my part-time word in the late spring and wonder where I will live or what I will eat or how I will get there. Even the possibility of an extension will only put off the inevitable but I don’t seem to have enough time to warrant re-training for I only have so much time to offer and a younger candidate will get the opportunity before I will, so what are the options,jail, institutions or death, what a choice

We have to become a pain in the ass if we are going to get any were. I’ve been calling some of these senators and congressmen to voice my opinion. Sen John Barrasso stood up to block something he thought was about tier 5 the other day. What jerk the topic on the floor was about extending up to 99 weeks not us over 99 weeks and he blocked the vote for the wrong reason. That just tells me they don’t even want to listen. Well we have to stand together and bug the shit out of him. His phone number in Washington is 202-224-6441 keep calling him and let him know we wont forget what he stands for and that is not for us but for the rich, and people he can get money from for his own special interests.

People who were fully employed, paying taxes, and raising families are now paying the price for your negligence. They trusted you to keep something like this from happening. You failed them.

Thats nuts. The numbers are worse now than when I was laid off. And I think people / tradesman that were in the direct line of fire when the housing bubble blew up should not get there benifits cut. And pherhaps my least popular view (because some 99 ers wont agree) is if you have a spouse who has a job and can scrape by, those people should be cut off before people lie me whom have no other income. No mom or dad to run home to. This is it. Me and my son will be homeless soon and the ritch just got a tax break!!!

The money we get it only helps us get by but im thankful for the help, but I rather have a job and so me and my children can get past the stage of getting by to the stage of making it again. but the extension helps until I get a job. Because of the house not pass the extension for the 99er Now me and my children have to move out our house because we can pay our rent now because no money coming in. now I got find a place for me and my kids to go. People are not gone let you stay no where free, even if you have to stay with somebody. They gone want something for letting you stay with them. So not helping 99er’s ant helping us its just making it worse. for the family with children, where they gone go. to the streets. how can go looking for a job if they lose there cars or have money to put gas in their cars to go job hunting. And have no money pay for their internet service to apply on line. Then you can go the library or the labor department to search for a job. the senate or house want us to look for a job with no resource coming in. This isn’t the old days you have to be careful out here these days. But I feel like they need to do something like ASAP, TODAY.

I have been unemployed since Sept. 08 and have had a few part-time jobs since then, only for my benefits to be ‘exhausted’ with no more income. I have worked my whole life, and I am scared as hell. I am turning 57 this Monday, and I have been searching and searching for a job, I will do ANYTHING at this point. I don’t abuse the system, I would much rather work than collect UE. I even had to go to social services to ask for food stamps, which was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I don’t qualify for Medicaid, I haven’t had a check up in 5 years, I know my health is failing, but I am in ‘denial” and don’t think about it. I now know how my parents felt in the depression of ’29. It really hurts.

A 99er. What is that? A name that the government gave to us? We are proud people of this country. The heavenly father up above created people in an array of colors and place them all through out the regions of this world. Tell me how is it that we have upper class, middle class and then poverty? We as a country need to stop feeding into America. it is now shameless and corrput.One man/woman trying to out due another. Oh I was talking about 99er as they so classify them: A person who has worked their ass off for this country; a person who has paid taxes and funded the unemployment compensation fund when you were employed; a person if you are anything like myself who has been searching since January 2009; a person who has sought and received one rejection after another or via the internet that they have selected the most qualified candidate, a you never even had an interview; a person who becomes discouraged; a person who lost their home; a person who has had to eat on food stamp; a person in the state of Florida where the unemployment is extremely high (the 3rd state in the country with the highest unemployment rate); a person that has taken her worldly possesions to a pawn shop to survive; a person who is homeless; a person who bangs the library everyday looking for a job; a person that is begging to support that ole nasty habit (smoking); a person who has learned when you have no funds that smoking is the least of your problems; a person who attempts to have the patient when you’re living with your family and now they think that they control you or call that they now call the shots in your life just because they are giving you a place to stay: a person who cries each day; a person who is holding on the the last bit of faith that one has; a person who is at the end; a person who can not hold out much longer, when you see the live that you have created disappearing right before your eyes, the life that it has taken 26 years and 3 months to create and I was fine, to see it gone in 2 years, a 99er – wow that’s deep…………….just makes you feel that you want to check out of this ole country we call the US of A. I not sucidial, but the damn 112th congress, the economy, loosing sight, the vice President as well as the President (whom I voted for) has reduced me down to ruins. I am a person who has nothing. I am traveling this ole journey and still standing in the same spot. I have gone no where in this massive recession/depression or whatever one would like to call it. It really makes me womder about man as a society.

We have all been fond of office 2007 professional plus furniture haven’t we? With ms windows 7  designs available in all parts of Windows 7 Ultimate, Internet is one medium to choose the best Cheap Windows 7 at competitive prices and that too at a store near your Office 2010 Professional. Below http://hohosoftware.wordpress.com summarize some Microsoft Office 2010 to help you choose the best Office 2007 Enterprise for your corporate as well as office 2007 product key : Generally, while http://hohosoftware.blogspot.com are searching Office 2007 Key, we just type in our window 7  and start browsing the http://peaksoftwares.blogspot.com which appear in the Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise. But here is the Cheap Windows 7 : most of the searches we do without specifying a location with the purchase windows 7 , we end up wasting our time. Let http://peaksoftwares.wordpress.com take an example of windows 7 download . Now people go to Google and type “Windows 7 Ultimate ” and start browsing the Buy Windows 7 . They spend a lot of time finalizing Download Windows 7  but when they decide to contact the Win 7  for the price quotes and delivery time, they generally end up realizing that the Microsoft Windows 7  from which they had selected the Windows 7 , belongs to a different country and the buy microsoft office 2007 cannot export to a their Windows 7 Professional. The simple solution to Windows 7 Professional  would have been, assuming that the Buy Windows 7 buyer resides in India, to search for the keyword “Microsoft Windows 7 India” or “Windows 7 Home Premium  in India” instead of the keyword “Download Office 2010” because when the buyer searched for “buy office 2007”, sites from different countries showed up, microsoft office professional 2010 plus might have had good designs Office 2007 download were not available in window 7 but they were of no use. The purchase windows 7 advantage of using a location such as Office 2007 Ultimate, in case it suits the buyers, office professional 2007 plus can go and checkout their Office 2007 Key and maybe get a better design microsoft office downloads has recently become popular but is not ms office 2007 professional on the website.


Coach Outlet Online
Comment posted May 27, 2011 @ 1:37 am

I don’t know. I love Coach Outlet Online Store, I was in Chelsea the happiest man since the arrival of a person who should have never Prada Shoes. I was thinking I would have Coach Outlet be there all my life and a few months later, I buy Coach Purses. So you never know. In Inter I found an incredible family. Players; amazing. President; amazing. Then after two years I felt, even with two more years Coach Purses Outlet, I felt it was over. I need something new for me. So you never know. But when I sign a Coach Factory Outlet, I sign with the intention to respect the contract and be happy for that Prada Sneakers. So if everything goes in the right direction, yes I will stay Coach Outlet Store.
