Unemployed Man Commits Suicide

http://hubpages.com - 20 July 2010

It is official, the US Senate Republican Party has blood on its hands! Last week, a Michigan father of three committed suicide by shooting himself when he could no longer handle the pressures of having no money to feed and care for his family. He was losing everything he had worked so hard to accumulate. He became despondent when his sole source of income, his megar unemployment checks, were cut off when congress failed to pass the unemployment extension bill. With no chance of finding a new job, he had lost all hope. This man had worked 32 years at the same company when he became unemployed in 2009. An excerpt from his suicide letter reads ,” I am sorry, I have now lost every ounce of pride I ever had. You will be better off without me.” A Memorial Service was held on Saturday July,17th 2010. He had collected Unemployment Compensation for less than a year. His employer had paid into unemployment for him for 32 years, yet he could only collect benefits for less than a year, how can that be? Michigan has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the United States. The seasonally adjusted rate was 13.2 % in June 2010.

The Republican Party opted to fillibuster and not pass legislation that would have extended unemployment benefits for 2.2 million Americans. They fillibusterd until it was time to go on Vacation. The same scinerio occured in May when they recessed after fillibustering and again went on vacation and left the bill in limbo.

What a shame when we can bailout big business, and forget the average working class American! Shame on all who have delayed the passage of the Unempoyment Extension Bill!

Fortunately that people who are overweight along with suffering from various diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their illnesses through losing weight.

    Influx of foreigners have affected the livelihood of singaporeans. In Dec 2011, I attended an inteview for an engineer position. My asking for only for S$2,800. I was told by the interview that the company only pay S$1,800. That’s what they pay their foreigner workers engineers. Having send out at least 350 applications, I am still unemployed. Foreign unskilled workers are paid $600 – $750. Of course it is natural to hire these cheap labour while singaporeans go pick card board and do basking at mrt stations.

  9. mIKE says:

    PAP ministers and the civil service does not realize how much damage they have done to singaporeans. I sat in the mrt train one day and decided to do some counting. Infront of me were some china nationals. Seated to my left and right are indian and filipino nationals. Standing in the aisle & dooway are filipino woman chatting happily with their chirpy and loud voices. I am lost in a sea of foreigners. I could hardly recognize any singaporeans in the train. Who am I? I am a foreigner in my own country and I feel uncomfortable taking mrts trains and buses.

    Yes I do believe the PAP minsters are the ones who screwed up and not the foreigners. Foreigners provide taxes, some of them even create businesses here and spend a lot here. However, the influx speed is the real problem, causing an imbalance against locals. Also, the business climate ALLOWS businesses to underpay foreigners. THATS WHY WE SINGAPOREANS ARE NOT HIRED…. We should really FIGHT FOR A MINIMUM WAGE because if they take away the rights of the foreigners they take away our competing rights too.
