Unemployment Lines

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Judging by the long queue of people it was no doubt another company had closed, and those employees were standing in line in the rain waiting to get into the building so they could fill out their unemployment papers. The quicker you filled them out, the faster you started to get paid.

I learned from experience that you needed to be in line before 7:00 AM if you wanted to get into the office that day as they shut the doors in your face once a certain amount of people had arrived. The employees did not want to work overtime.

    I believe that companies should have a responsibility to their former employees. Frustratingly to many companies seem not to care. Such companies cause individuals to face great mental stress. It is very wrong, and often our elected representatives do not challenge the company and the nation state. It seems that your story has got me thinking, which is good

      They may want to work overtime, but the state wouldn’t allow it. Also unemployment is not really welfare. They take unemployment out of your check. I think the employer also adds so much as well. Welfare is definitely paid for by the state.
