This is a big reason why America should have a basic national income. Someone like this should never be left with nothing in a country as rich as ours.

American exceptionalism. Big green foam fingers and all that.

I know the credit check is hurting a lot of people. I know college graduates, with a fierce work ethic, being turned down by JC Penny to big box retail companies because they didn’t pass a credit check.
Credit that was ruined by the recession.

This fucking sucks.

I was unemployed from 2003-2006 and again from 2007-2010. I managed to fill the gaps in my resume by listing myself as the technical director of a nonprofit that I created.

Also too: race discrimination, age discrimination, sex discrimination.

I get more calls from recruiters now than I ever did while I was actually looking for a job.

Now add in the effects of the school-to-prison pipeline. Some hundreds of thousands of our citizens face welfare, criminality, or nomadism as survival strategies. If the libertarians get to tear more holes in the safety net, they are just supposed to starve. Of course a few will make it in the NFL.

This is the sort of thing I faced before the sheer hypocrisy of our system drove me insane.

Like Norman I tried to make sense out of nonsense…and failed.

Until the disconnect between our society’s beliefs and its actions this sort of thing will only get worse.

“We don’t hire the unemployed.”

Fucking retard statement. Dumb-fuck stupid statement. Who is looking for a job? Unemployed people, mostly!
