Jobless Recovery?


Wichita Peace and Freedom Party Examiner

The news is out. We are in recovery. But waite! Where are the jobs? Should there be a lot of need for work now that the recovery is here. Happy days are here again. The money is rolling in. And yet I have many friends looking for a job.

According to KAKE TV in Wichita;

“It's a fear he says has become even more realistic, after thweek's news that Cessna will be dropping 700 jobs….The state's backlog is getting smaller, after the Department of Labor increased staff and started working overtime. But now, a new round of layoffs could add to the problem. And for those already on the wait list, it's devastating news.

"I've done what I've been asked to do all my life, and apparently that's just not good enough anymore," said Tim Pouncey, who recently lost his job as a social worker.

Now, he says he's waiting for unemployment benefits, but he won't be able to wait for long.

"If I can't get it set up, I could actually be homeless by Thanksgiving," said Pouncey.”

Yes there are less jobs and everyone who has a job can rejoice. But those don’t may want wonder where there next job is coming from? The Tea Party members want to end employement benefits which would put thousands of people on the street. What would they do without jobs? Build shanties and die?

This is something serious to think about.

What the article doesn't report is the fact that karma finally caught up with Mr. Pouncey. If he had taken his responsibilities as a social worker seriously, he would not be standing in that unemployment line.
