    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?

    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.
