It's Going To Be A Long 11 Days...

April 12, 2010 the United States Senate will come back into session and a variety of reports indicate that Harry Reid (D-Nev) will seek cloture on the extension to extend availability of dates for the weeks currently available for EUC (Emergency Unemployment Compensation).  The good news and the news that gives us hope that Congress will take up an additional tier for those who have exhausted benefits are the continued support from those taking action. 

There have been an increased amount of media reports on the longest-term unemployed who have exhausted their benefits.  Several unemployed workers have heard from their Senators that something is "in the works" (although there are no confirmed reports yet).  Additionally, the increased and continued involvement of Americans who recognize the need for a Tier 5 exercising their First Amendment rights to petition to Congress remain strong after an effort that began over a month ago.

We will all continue to be looking for confirmed statements from relevant sources while the United States Senate is in recess for the Easter holiday.  It is our goal at US Unemployed Blogsite to inform the public and take action and continue to provide the resources available for us to get our voices heard. 

As championed by, "The Unemployed Will Be Heard".  Best wishes to everyone in these trying times and there are reasons to keep your spirits up. Although millions of Americans will be without income during this Easter break - everyone should know that the efforts of this blog will not relent until Congress takes action for those hit hardest in this recession. The unemployed and those hit hardest by this recession will not be thrown under the bus.  Everyone is in our thoughts.  Best wishes to all.

Until April 12th, it's going to be a long 11 days...
