    Unemployed Face Abuse From Other Americans

    Unemployment Extension Unsuccessful; Americans turn on Each Other

    Jun 27 2010

    The Senate’s unsuccessful bid at approving an unemployment extension has caused unemployed Americans to become more desperate for a lifeline. Unfortunately, to make matters worse for these Americans, they are becoming victims of harsh words online by other Americans and even companies.

    After researchers from U.S. Chronicle reviewed comments posted by users on opencongress.org — a site dedicated to aggregating data and information about Congress from the web — there appears to be an increase in the number of users who verbally abuse other users seeking an unemployment extension.

    One user posted a comment asking why people were dependent on the government to help them. The user further went on to state, “The whining for government benefits is embarrassing and pathetic.

    Don't forget, much of the misery dogging America's middle class was planned. Many of these companies will rather bring in foreign workers than hire American unemployed workers. They will be testifying before Congress that Americans with the needed skills can't be found, so they need a temporary shot of foreign talent until our school systems can be re-tooled to correct the deficiencies of American workers. That's writing off a couple of generations of us, and it's not even close to the truth.

    The fact is that the decision to replace us with foreigners was made at the top levels of govenment. Alan Greenspan let it slip:

    Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan said allowing more skilled immigrants to work in the United States would help keep the income gap from widening.

    Inequality of incomes is the "critical area where capitalist systems are most vulnerable," Greenspan said yesterday in Washington at a conference on maintaining the competitiveness of US capital markets convened by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. "You cannot have a system that we have unless the people who participate in it believe it is just."

    Allowing more skilled workers into the country would bring down the salaries of top earners in the United States, easing tensions over the mounting wage gap, Greenspan said.

    "Our skilled wages are higher than anywhere in the world," he said. "If we open up a significant window for skilled workers, that would suppress the skilled-wage level and end the concentration of income."

    The concept of replacing blue collar and manual labor with illegals, and the concept of replacing white collar breadwinners with foreigners, leaving the Americans to fend for themselves or just wither and die, is no accident.
