I Have Worked All My Life and Have Nothing to Show For It

Share Your Story: Share Your Unemployment Story


The job I lost

My job of 28+ years through no fault of mine always got above average evaluations, have worked all my life and now have nothing to show for it.

What it's like being unemployed

Horrible, what do you think it's like, you can't afford to buy your child's senior high school pictures, announcements, etc, you're just trying to survive. We're not in a recession, we're in a depression and it's getting worse.


  • Whoever the 3 people are that stopped this bill from passing should have their paychecks stopped and learn what it's like to work all your life and be treated this way
