Today I panicked and I cried. Its been 1 month and I am still waiting to get unemployment. Never mind the supplemental 600 from the government, I really don't care about that, I just want what is due to me now, what I have worked for and paid into my entire life. I have NO cash flow at all right now, which is the 1st time in over 25 years.
This is the #1 reason people are getting irritated and want things to open up, marching on statehouses and screaming at the top of their lungs. It's not that they are getting bored being at home, but because they are not getting what this government has told them they would get in a time of need. You can not live without some kind of cash flow. If you work your entire life and can not depend on this system that we are forced to pay into, then what can we trust?
The entire government has failed the people of this country on every single level. This is not a partisan statement, this is ALL governing bodies, all politicians. From the very TOP to the very BOTTOM. The only good I have really seen is from everyday people helping their neighbors and those in need.
While I completely understand the threat this unknown disease causes, there is something way more insidious that will kill us all if something isn't done soon, its called hopelessness and poverty. Once we reach that level, we will be their slaves.
