Where is the NPR story when Americans were lined up at Food Bank during the “Great Recession” when the gov’t workers were living fat and happy on the tax payers’ dime?
Govt. “workers” are neck and neck with MSM as them most hated group in the nation.
I was one of them. I lived in the Detroit area and was a victim of the auto industry and the Michigan Depression. My job was furloughed permanently. I provided the sole income for my family. It took six months and having to move 600 miles to get a new job.
At that point, we had two households since I was in an apartment for several months till we could sell the house and move the family.
We never went to a food bank, we never were late on a mortgage payment. We hunkered down, cancelled all the cell phones but mine and our frugal lifestyle went downright cheap.
At one point, I called the mortgage company and asked if they had any programs to help people like me who hadn’t missed any payments. They told me to skip 2-3 payments and call back.
