The basic amenity of unemployment benefits may get cancelled thanks to negotiations between the Democrats and the Republicans. Yet President Obama is to try and convince the senate regarding the extension of the previous unemployment package for those American people who are down and out. It is a tough trial that the program faces at present.
Many needy Americans, as many as 1.3 million, lost the right to unemployment wages over the Christmas holidays. But now a renewal of this for at least three months is the talk of the town. President Obama especially feels for these people who he doesn’t want to leave behind in their time of need.
He has reiterated the fact that the nation needs to keep the faith and lend a helping hand to those who are suffering from the scourge of unemployment. Nevertheless, the unemployment bill has the Sword of Damocles hanging over its head.
The Democrats are going to do all that lies in their capacity to get the resources to the poor people in the nick of time. It depends upon winning the hearts of senators. This is one acid test that will gauge the patience of the Democrats in a brutal way. Many families with kids to support are having a tough time since the unemployment benefits were snatched away from them.
Currently, a CV of an unemployed man or woman doesn’t even get looked at in the premises of most of the corporations in America. The situation seems a desperate one and the decision to allow unemployment wages is to be voted on soon.
