Losing Life and Livelihood

Sometimes a meeting is as good as it gets.

 

 

This week as Congress averted a government shutdown, 2 Democrats and 2 Republicans got together Thursday to talk about 99ers. That's the label given to more than one million of our unemployed neighbors who have exhausted all of their state and federal unemployment benefits. Representatives Barbara Lee (D-California) and Bobby Scott (D-Virginia) met with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Eric Cantor (R-Virginia). Lee's legislation would add 14 weeks of federal benefits for the chronic unemployed. The Democrats asked for the bill to get an up-or-down vote in the House. The Repuiblicans told them to "go to........committee."

 

 

Afterwards, Cantor walked away from the media while the Democrats tried to muster hope for the current 99ers and the 4 million more Americans who will join their ranks this year.

 

 

To make matters worse, a new study says unemployment isn't just bad for your health, but it raises the risk of death. Researchers at Stony Brook University found the jobless are 63 percent more likely to die than those with jobs. Men faced a greater risk (78 percent) than women (37 percent). But there's no silver lining there.

 

 

"Our study results clearly indicate that unemployment is not just bad for your pocketbook; it's also bad for your health," says Dr. Joseph Schwartz, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York.

 

 

For some reason, perspective helps. The study found that younger unemployed (under age 50) face a greater risk of death (approximately 75 percent) than those who were 50 or older (25 percent).

 

 

One contributor could be rejection after rejection after rejection. Some companies have told the unemployed they need not apply. Their bizarre thinking is that those with jobs make for better workers. ABC News is the latest outlet not to buy it. They have launched an investigation into hiring discrimination, specifically employers who are refusing to hire the unemployed. If you think you have been turned down BECAUSE you don't have a job, contact ABC News.

Sorry, if not around the topic. I had a bit embarrassment. I randomly lost my essay and I urgently need to write a brand new a single. I can not create with my own strength, so I wanted to apply towards the essay writing service for cash. Found a couple of web content about this, but I do not know if you can trust these web-sites. Has any one heard of the http://www.rockwellassoc.com/write-an-essay-to-order-14/ ???

I also wanted to ask, did someone encounter such a problem? And what will happen if they obtain out that my paper was bought, and not written by me

I apologize for off-topic, I'm considering about creating an interesting web site for kids. Will probably start with submitting interesting information just like"The world's youngest parents were 8 and 9 and lived in China in 1910."Please let me know if you know where I can find some related information such as right here
