Are the unemployed screwed?
Many of us know how bad it is to be unemployed.
And yet, there are many that are convinced that the economy is strong because the top 1% see their incomes soar while banks and brokerage firms hand out huge bonuses, so they figure that those that are not doing well are suffering entirely due to their own mistakes. That anybody who wants a job can get one, and those that lose jobs and don’t have enough in the bank to survive the couple of weeks until they get another job.
To me, it seems like the unemployed are getting screwed every which way. Not only are the unemployed screwed over financially, they are ostracized and belittled as well.
