The Unemployed And Underemployed Testify

A canvasser from Working America (part of AFL-CIO) knocked on our door a few months ago. She wanted money, but she received my email address instead. Ever since, Working America has been sending me weekly updates. Today, I learned about their new site, Unemployment Lifeline, which offers online resources to people in need of help.

According to Working America, only 37 percent of unemployed workers collect unemployment benefits. And when you count the so-called “underemployed” the number of Americans who are out of work soars to 15.6%.
