THE WONDERING JEW
So What's New ?
Head line in The Rocky Mountain News of November 18th, by Larry Margaak of the Associated Press. "U.S. help too slow in layoffs, GAO says."
Going down a bit, Mr. Margaak says, "Instead, delays of more than three months have forced 25 states, including Colorado, to deny services or delay them, the General Accounting Office said in a report this month."
Then Mr. Margaak tells about the CYA from the Labor Department, "In a letter to GAO, the Labor Department disputed the length of delays, saying they averaged 53 days." "The department blamed states for submitting incomplete applications and other problems . . . . "
So, if I am a worker and am laid off I must wait on the average of 53 days before I can buy food and pay rent and car payments ? Now an average means that some delays are more than 53 days and some less. Given the luck that has prevailed for many of us, three months it would probably be.
With bureaucratic feet tangled in red tape and their heads full of Washington BS, little guys like me have to figure out how to feed, house and care for their families. Riiight, I get it, So What's New ? . . . . . . . . .0 comments so far
