Thousands Camp Out for Job Fair as Jobless Rate Rises
Thousands of unemployed waited overnight, camping out in their business suits and office heels and braving the tormenting heat in Atlanta to stand in line for a job fair Thursday. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.
The incredible turnout at the job fair comes on the heels of the state labor commissioner’s announcement that Georgia’s jobless rate rose.
The state unemployment rate increased to 10.1 percent in July from the 9.9 percent in June. The unemployment rate for African-Americans stands at 15.9 percent, far above the national rate of 9.1 percent.
July marks the 48th consecutive month that Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate.
The line was full of hopefuls who waited for hours in a line that wrapped around the Atlanta Technical College where the event was held.
The For the People Jobs Initiative, hosted by U.S. Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson and sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus, is a series of job fairs and town halls at some of the urban areas hit hardest by unemployment and the financial crisis.
The enormous turnout in Georgia created miles of traffic that clogged southwest Atlanta. – ABCNews
As the world falls apart, Dawn Lucifer’s last ditch effort at trying to save his prized country which is the USA will not be successful. The printing of one and a half trillion dollars to bail out failed and failing banks as well as mortgaging firms will cause a complete collapse of the United States economy. This in turn will start the domino effect of toppling other nations economies that purchase the bonds to cover the rising debt of the new trillion and a half that will be used to try and halt the present financial crisis in the USA market. This will prompt the European Union to take steps in trying to stabilize the world economy by coming to the United States aid. In essence this will be the first step in bringing the USA under the umbrella of its benefactor and force Dawn Lucifer to complete the prophecy as outlined within the Word of our grand Father and Mother Yahweh. It will be an event that will change the world as you all now know it to be.
