Unemployment

My son recently found employment. But, prior to working, he was unemployed. His benefits were about to expire. He is the father of four and almost wasn't able to provide for them, leaving me to take up the slack. I am happy for his employment, but for people suffering job loss is terrible. The benefits are very important for people to survive and take care of families. If members of congress ever suffer joblessness, only then will they understand! I bet unemployment benefits will never vanish if that happens!
