Unemployment. Long lines in freezing weather

Rapper J-Hustle videoed a six block line of people in Chicago standing in minus 8 wind chill weather waiting to get an application to work at Ford. And then Ford closed the doors early. The unemployment rate there and in too many other areas is off the charts. Make no mistake, these are people who want to work. But the jobs aren’t there

“Where the hell is the help you bastard [politicians] promised the people for voting you into office,” he asks. Agreed.

    But…but…I thought that the powers that be have decreed that unemployment would disappear if these slackers would just get a job.

      Total slackers, standing in minus eight wind chill for hours just to get a job application form. Why don’t they get a job! Oh, wait…
