    2010 Unemployment Extension Jobless Woes: Unemployed Need Not Apply

    A "Growing Trend" Shows that Companies Are Blatantly Stating in Ads that the Unemployed Need Not Apply for Job Openings
    Unemployed need not apply. As strange as those four words might look, not to mention how contradictory they might seem to be, according to CNN Money, they are becoming increasingly common in jobs
    listings and help wanted ads. As Congress debates the relative merits of unemployment benefits extensions and hundreds of thousands lose those same unemployment benefits weekly, the number of unemployed, those searching for jobs, and those without income increases, adding their names to the unemployed that in many instances will not be hired. Worse, they need not apply at many job openings. Worse still, knowledge that some businesses are bold enough to post such a requirement of eligibility so openly leads to the leap in logic that there are many more that aren't being as open and who discriminate against the unemployed on a far more subtler level.

    What will the unemployed due now that extension benefits were cut, and their still are no jobs, 1. 3 million were cut from benefits. Now every week 200,000 thousand will be cut every week.. what will the outcome be, more homeless more crime, riots ?

    The new people to hate , those lazy assed scum who are unemployed and refuse to get a job.

    I have been hearing crap like this from the right.

    They are begining to attack the unemployed like they caused this mess.

    Republicans trying to convince Americans to spew hate and refuse to help their fellow man.

    Interesting. I guess from an employer's viewpoint the unemployed could be viewed as losers as layoffs usually affect the non-essential employees the most.

    Personally, I'd just lie and say I had taken time off to get more education.

    No one has attacked anyone who has been laid off and is actively looking for work. Where do you dream this shit up at?

    What is the outcome of something like this?

    The steady erosion of the QAULITY of life for practically everyone, regardless whether or not they have a job or money.

    How does one insulate oneself from a society going down?

    Either one runs away from it, or one take refuge behind gated community which end up being little more than pretty prisons for the still affluent.

    But the engine that drives it every society is the working class, folks.

    Sure the weathy hire the workers, but the wealhy are ONLY wealthy if the workers produce (AND BUY) those goods and services that the wealthy helped organize by dint of having CAPITAL to get it all going..

    The irony of this system is that it can BREAK DOWN because of foolish monetary policies like we've been creating for the last nearly 40 years..

    Think about it.

    Are there enough workers? Yes.

    Have the factories and farms all imploded?

    No.

    Is there some natural catastrophy which can explain the sudden loss of human productivity?

    No.

    But since we use MONEY as the lubricant (and score card) for productivity, when the money supply gets fucked up (for whatever reason) the machinery of society slows down or grinds to a halt.

    A lack of liquid capital (not real wealth, merely the lubrication/scorecard we call capital) has hindered many societies from achiving their REAL potential.

    And a sudden infusion of this thing we call capital, can allow that society to blossom, too (if they don't allow it to end up being wasted by inflationary pressure, of course)

    This is one of the reasons I cannot sign onto the theory that a monetary system based on metal makes much sense, either, incidently.

    Despite the OBVIOUS flaws of the fiat money system we have right now, attempting to reconcile the value of all goods and services (a growing society is capable of producing) against what is basically a static amount of metal is bound to be a drag on real productivity.

    More people can produce new good and services than we can find gold or silver to accounting balance against those products.

    But if somebody can create a economic model where business can be conducted in a economy that learns to live with CONSTANT DEFLATION, then hell yes, let's go back to a precious metal based monetary system.

    It's just that nobody has ever shown me how that society can work.

    Thanks, but I don't want the job. ;)

    Although, having some of those in Congress join me on the unemployment line would be satisfying. There is lots of room from what I can see. In fact, by their decision to end the extensions at the worst possible time since the Great Depression, well I suppose the Carter years may have been worse, I understand that 200,000 positions in that line are being opened up every week. Hell yes, there is plenty of room!

    Long term unemployed implies you really aren't looking that hard.

    I am going to school. Not quite the same thing.

    If your unemployed the good jobs go to the ones holding but looking for more money, the ones possessing less skills will be hired at the lowest price. Smart business.
