An Open Letter To President Obama From A 99er

Dear Mr. President,

I am a 99er. I’m sure you already know what that is, but to clarify: A 99er is a person who has exhausted all available unemployment benefits, including all 4 Tiers of federal EUC as well as state extended benefits.

I was originally laid off in December of 2007 from a job I had held for 12 years. I have sent out multiple copies of my resume daily and filled out countless job applications since then. About a month ago, I finally got my first callback and interview.

My first. Since December of 2007.
Please read the complete letter here.
