The Unemployment Question(s)

by Raymond Nat Turner

 

Licking bitter flaps on unemployment envelopes

somewhere under the rainbow

Lies

true hues

in bright Red,

Black

and dark Blues:

 

Drawin’ unemployment’s like drawin’ straws

Drawin’ unemployment’s like drawin’ straws

We come up short under rich folks’ laws.

 

Livin’ on nothin’, while hunger works full time

Livin’ on nothin’, while hunger works full time

No wonder, some brothers stumble into crime.

 

And the rich cry, “...crime, crime, crime” every day

And the rich cry, “...crime, crime, crime” every day

While cocaine’s trafficked by the C-I-A.

 

We been slavin’ fo’ the mastahs and what we git?

We been slavin’ fo’ the mastahs and what we git?

Stack-o-papers to fill out, askin’ dumb shit!

 

State here the reason you’re out of work.”

“Answer the following then report to the clerk.”

Will you accept work in your usual trade?”

“What’s your income with benefits paid?”

Do you own a farm, or a ranch?”

“Do you have a savings? What branch?”

Did you look for work all this past week?”

“Where did you go, with whom did you speak?”

Are you a citizen of the U.S.?”

“If answering ‘No’, then why not ‘Yes’?”

Have a seat and wait to be seen”

“Any questions about what we mean?”

Anyone in line who voluntarily quit?”

“Step out — go over there and sit”

Sorry, you can’t be seen until ten —”

 

“Provided, you fill this out for WIN...”

 

We been slavin’ fo’ the mastahs and what we git?

We been slavin’ fo’ the mastahs and what we git?

When we fit…

I find this post very

I find this post very interesting. The Labor Department said that joblessness application filings fell by 6,000 in the previous week. The numbers concur with other signs that the nation is experiencing modest job growth. When economic crisis arises, there comes recession, bankruptcy, foreclosure and rising unemployment rate.

The American economy is

The American economy is experiencing a crisis in long-term unemployment that has enormous human and economic costs. According to a private study by the payroll services business ADP, American businesses added 176,000 new jobs to the economy. That is a welcome-though-moderate boost from the 136,000 reported in the previous reports.
