Vox Clamantis: “the voice of one crying out”

Currently, there are approximately 40,000,000 unemployed people in the United States. Only about 15,000,000 of them receive unemployment benefits. 25,000,000 Americans either failed to qualify for benefits, have already rolled off unemployment, have taken some kind of burger-flipper type of under-employment or have simply given up. Over 400,000 workers file first-time claims for unemployment benefits EVERY WEEK. Workers who were laid off back in 2008 have rolled off of unemployment at the same rate minus the negligible impact of new job creation. At this current rate, there will be close to 60,000,000 unemployed Americans this time next year. 

These people didn’t lay themselves off. They didn’t create this situation. Unfortunately, help is NOT on the way any time soon. So, once again, the American People are going to have to rise to the occasion and get the job done themselves.
