Where was the City of Elkhart on that report?  It seems to me that the increase of unemployment is a very good reason to raise the trash fee so that people will have something to use the unemployment check for.  That is to use for something other than food, housing, and other necessities

I certainly understand your point, however honestly the $11+ each month will just mean a cut back on booze and cigs. Satisfied

But how will these poor people ever afford their cell phones, ipod, ipads, flatscreen TV's and all of the other necessities that everyone has come to expect and actually feel as they are a RIGHT rather than an extra?  I will actually encourage the forgiveness of paying a trash bill to anyone of the "poor" who own none of the above mentioned products.

The rate of people unemployed never went down, they just ran out of unemployment benefits and still had no jobs. I cant believe how many people over the age of 50 or even 40 have lost there jobs and no one will hire them. these are the people who are loosing there homes, there retirement, savings, well they are loosing or lost everything they worked for all there lives. these people want to work! HIRE THE OLDER PEOPLE!

Remember the saying presented in the Obama 2008 campaign to those who were so humble to receive Obama on his visit to Elkhart, "HE WILL CARRY US." So true, all the way to the food stamp lines, assisted public housing, long welfare lines, stagnating wages and I guess that now means he will also carry the garbage out after garbage fees(short for landfill environmental use tax) comes into effect, while all the time requiring the whole thing be done with Elkhart paying higher gas prices. Nine percent and over unemployment rate will tell you that he may have carried Elkhart in the wrong direction. I read an article recently where he had visited residents on Bank Street and turned it into a one way street to unemployed, repossessions and poverty, how far is he going to carry everyone this time, and where and when will he ask direction. Get aboard the public transport bus and hope it doesn't try angle parking on Main with Obama continuing to drive.

I may be missing a huge piece of the puzzle here, but I tend to think the help wanted signs in front of employers locations are more than lawn ornaments BigGrin

Didn't Obama and Huckabee practically live here before the last election? Don't see either coming back.

Note: How does this dope Sanders even have a job when he can't figure out that when peoples unemployment runs out they become non-people and are not counted as unemployed even though they still don't have a job. Earth to Scott - All government numbers are rigged.

Well at least they didn't try to spin this as something good.
