Still Unemployed

Share Your Story: Share Your Unemployment Story

The job I lost

I lost my job in December 2008! I worked for a local car dealer and it closed! I drew unemployment until July of this year! I have filled out hundreds of applications for work and only got called for 2 interviews! As to date I'm still unemployed and very depressed about it! Why will the government not add a tier 5 for those of us whom still need help? I didn't draw 99 weeks either,I only drew for about 80 weeks, but yet I was told I was out of luck! This is not right and if the government is gonna help some then they should help all of us that need it! I'm sure there is still several thousands of us that need it also.

What it's like being unemployed

It's great if you have plenty of money! But if you don't it sucks! Its a good thing that my kids are grown now and understand my situation,because there won't be anything for Christmas from me from the looks of it!! Thank you Mr. President for helping us also!!
