BREAKING NEWS... Erie, PA has JOBS!!!
In an article in today's Washington Post Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (D. Pa) said," businesses back home complain that they want to start hiring but are getting few applicants because Congress has repeatedly extended unemployment benefits".
"Now, whether that's true or not, I'm still trying to decipher," she said. "But I think it's something we really need to look at."
My God, where are all of these companies?
That's what I wanted to know, so I called Rep. Dahlkemper to ask for the names of those companies. I wanted to post the good news for all those people out there that have been looking for work (for the last year plus) and for all the 99ers who have exhausted all of their benefits. With national unemployment near 10%, you would think that any lawmaker that had that kind of information would have issued a press release, you would think her office would be calling constituents and letting them know about this untapped source of jobs.
Well, the young lady that answered the phone, in the Congresswoman's Washington office, didn't have a clue but said she would pass my question on to Rep. Dahlkemper. She did take my name but no contact information so I'm not sure how they are going to get back to me on this great news.
Maybe you may have better luck than I did, here's Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper's contact information, if you need a job, please contact her office and let her know.
