It is extremely important that the unemployed put the past behind them and look forward to their future albeit, even if it is the short-term.
The workforce as a whole is in jeopardy as, the Republican Party plans to further increase lay-offs by granting extensions, and an increases in the Foreign Tax credits that sent millions of American jobs offshore and overseas as, greedy Republican Party backers took every advantage of this tax loophole.
The Republican House also plans to attack the minimum wage. As if not all was bad enough, no longer will the American worker have a strong federal law behind them to ensure they can at least provide the basics for themselves and families.
Disenchanted voters are missing the true message, the job market remains sluggish however, it is growing for a change.
