I Hate Unemployment

Share Your Story: Share Your Unemployment Story

By anjolie

The job I lost

i worked in a car parts factory for 9 years. I lost my job in August 2008. I can't find a job in my town. We have one of the highest unemployment rates.

I just don't understand why they are letting people run out of benefits if they keep doing this the economy won't get better.

What it's like being unemployed

I hate unemployment. I sometimes run out of benefits. I can't pay my bills or buy my kids things they need because I am worried I won't get an extension. I don't understand why they don't extend unemployment benefits.
