So, after I spent several hours today looking for employment, then learning that my hosue is due for a forclosure sell in January, I emailed my "comments" to the President/White House staff. I didn't include any nasty comments but made it clear that this catch 22 situation of "you can't get the job because you don't have a payment plan" and "you can't work out a payment plan because you don't have a job" and "you will qualify for a federal job if you get another job and work out your financial difficulties first" undermined all my efforts to get a job, keep my home, and support my child. And this kind of stuff is why I don't think the economy is improving. I'm pretty sure this correspondence won't result in one of those invites to the WH to get a pat on the back and be on TV with one of these "Ohhhhh, How special" moments. LOL! It might result in me NEVER working for the government though because I listed the agency this all happened with- but I figured if I didn't, it might not seem true. (No information was classified or anything.) ETA: Well I just found a place on their website to request help about a fed agancy. I'm going to resend my message using that avenue. They claim to want to help parents/families, people owing on credit, people unemployed, people with no medication insurance, veterans, people facing foreclosure......I think I can give them a chance to do that. LOL!
