For over 18 months, workers have struggled through financial uncertainty with very little support from elected officials. The little support some received, such as additional unemployment benefits, has been taken away. Our wages are stagnant for those of us who have jobs while rent, food, gas, and medical expenses are skyrocketing. Too many of us are suffering in silence while we hear folks like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and others continue getting richer. We wonder: What about us?
What about the strife that we have gone through? What about our stories of harassment from our bosses or the hundreds of job applications filled out with no reply? Or the disability that’s stopping you from finding long-term work? What about our hopes and dreams? Why do we keep hearing “go get a job!” without any consideration about the low pay or bad treatment from bully bosses?
If you’re struggling with unemployment or have a job that still can’t make ends meet, we want to hear from you. Tell us your story.
