The unemployment rate is still at 7.6% which, of course, does not include the millions who have simply given up due to the job situation. There are millions who will never again earn what they did before being fired due to the economic situation, not because of their work ethic. But, Republicans gained control of state legislatures in 2010 and they are determined to make people suffer -in the name of Christianity we can assume. North Carolina reduced the length of time one could receive unemployment pay as well the amount received. State after state is doing this and in most cases they are ruled by the Republican Party-or should we say by the wealthy of the state.
Unfortunately, those with jobs simply are not interested in those without. It is the era of indifference to those who lack work. Ironically, this attitude is very pronounced among those who believe “strongly” in the Christian faith.
