Boom and Bust is common everywhere not only in the US. Other countries like the second and third world countries are even worse since the recession. The news that the US has recovered and provided thousands of jobs in the US this year is a big relief but the recovery is temporary. This year has so much to see and we have to wait. and to make the economy stable,so much effort from the economic sector, leaders and businessmen are needed.

Why does no one talk about the people who have already run out of unemployment? They are not included in unemployment statistics nor or those who are forced into early retirement.

Also, employers are fighting those who do file and not everyone who is unemployed gets unemployment. Let see some real numbers.

Another stat you might want to look at- the number of people fired for bullshit or illegal reasons.

I was fired in July 2009 for being out 32 days. That in itself is not a bullshit reason- employers can fire you for excessive absenteeism. However, I was in the hospital for a month and provided plenty of documentation to support that. That was what made my firing not only bullshit, but illegal. Employers are engaging in this kind of conduct more andmore often these days until we stand up and refuse to let them get away with it.
