Surviving a Corporate War on the Middle Class

By Verlene Jones, Seattle Washington, Coalition of Labor Union Women, Washington State President,  verlenejazz@msn.com

I am a 57 year old black woman who has worked consistently all my life until being laid off from my job in April of 2009.

The years of hard work have taken a toll on my body and I am now faced with multiple physical limitations.

I apply for jobs weekly on a regular basis and have not been able to get past the first interview to be hired for employment.  I now have no health care and my unemployment insurance is the only thing keeping me from total financial devastation.

Extending the unemployment benefits is the right thing to do.  I am not asking for a hand out, I am asking for a return on the 43 years of making contributions to unemployment to keep me going through an economic down turn that has been imposed upon me through no fault of my own.
