The job I lost
I got laid off from iron working in December of 2008. Since then I have not found more work, the company I worked for went under and I have run out of my full 99 weeks of benefits and still can't get a job.
What it's like being unemployed
I am almost out of the money I had saved while getting my UI and not sure what is going to happen to me in the next few months if I don't find a job or receive further benefits. I don't buy much food or go anywhere because gas is too much for me to pay in my current situation.
- My situation is not nearly as bad as many others in California. I'm single without a family. Another extension should be added to help myself and others now facing poverty.
