With the national unemployment figure in American standing at 9.6 %, laziness nor drug addiction appear to be the mitigating issue. And that number
does not reflect the countless people, here, who simply ran out of their benefits (26 weeks worth if I am not mistaken plus an extension due to the
emergency level of unemployment). But even with the published number that is 96 out of 1,000 people that there is no available job for.
Factor that over the US population and that is almost 30,000,000 people - as a BEST CASE SCENARIO. And that is just one first world country.
This situation goes so far beyond generalizations as to be mind numbing. It's clear that the global economy is failing at an alarming rate and, I
fear, sincerely fear, that those who are mocking the poor today, will find themselves sharing the same pains as those who have already fallen between
If we don't educated ourselves, as a culture, and resolve to help those who need help, and to fix the things that are going so horribly wrong with the
world economy, we'll only have ourselves to blame when our turn at the dole window comes and we're suddenly labeled as "lazy" or "unworthy".
