Unemployed Several Times

I am a single mother with two children. Iam in a process of being trained for the Health Information Technology field through a community college training program. This program is all day from 8 to 5 pm. This unemployment helps me to complete this program so that I may hopefully enter into a new income bracket. I have been unemployed off and on for 4 years.

The first program I received training on was for a patient care technician. All of the women in that program including myself were treated like slave labor for low wages and were additionally fired in less than 3 months not for tardiness or negligence, but inability to keep pace with an unreasonable patient load. While we enjoyed taking care of people, the economic situation has created an even more desperate and horrible working condition for hospital workers.

Those in Congress making these decisions to build prisons, but close down schools, send money to foreign countries and take away our only means of support do not care about their constituents.

While President Obama has tried to put forth an effort, he is hamstrung intentionally, disrespected unlike any President in my memory. They (Congress) are creating two classes rich and poor. They care nothing for the poor, but want to be re-elected so they can receive more money from the lobbyist they really serve.

My God is sufficient and just.
