For months now we've heard next to nothing about the plight of the unemployed. People are rolling off the Unemployment Benefit Rolls by the month and the only thing we hear about is the latest scandals of Presidential Candidates.
The Unemployed need a place to express their experiences and concerns. A new internet radio show is here to take their call.
The New 99ers! The Voice of the 99ers from a 99er, is that show. The program is produced by a man named Aswad. Unemployed since 2009 and Homeless since 2010, he has like so many Americans looked for work to no avail.
He realized sending out resume after resume was a waste of time, and that life on Welfare and Food Stamps was unacceptable. Launching The New 99ers on the internet, he takes calls from fellow 99ers on topics of concern to them. Such as "How are you coping since loosing your Unemployment Benefits?", and "How has loosing your Unemployment Benefits impacted your relationship?"
The New 99ers can be heard here http://www.blogtalkradio.com/the-new-99er/2012/01/30/unemployed-homeless-welcome-to-the-new-99er
, twice a week.
The Homeless Host actually does the show from his laptop in the Public Library. Now that's being a new 99er!
