Did someone say Union for the white collar workers? You know, the bulk of the people who are making this country money? Jo-Anne Hurlston can't find a job after nearly six months of searching, even with her master's degree and experience in education, human resources and the hospitality industry. She's one of nearly 1 million unemployed workers across the country who will start losing jobless benefits three days after Christmas because Congress failed to grant an extension before leaving for the year. "All the money that's being spent on homeland security and we're left stranded," said Hurlston, 47, a single mother with a 12-year-old daughter. "If they want more money for homeland security, we have to be able to work to pay taxes." Full story here Folks, as you well know I support our leaders in their international affairs. However, we REALLY need to start looking inside the US for more pressing problems. Our own are suffering now--not potential for suffering, but sure as the sun will rise tomorrow. My solution? When economy is below a certain economic indicator (name one or two) we extend unemployment to all. I can't believe this Congress. First the military benefits, and now this. Great job?
