RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
What about the numbers of unemployed poor who are ineligible for unemployment benefits? I relocated to Portland prior to the economic collapse. I have been actively looking for employment since August. I had my first interview 3 weeks ago. Like so many others, I am educated and have years of experience in a variety of industries. My only option will be homelessness when my depleted savings runs out in a couple of months. Is this an acceptable option for Oregonians? I am now in the process of begging for rent assistance. I may have to do the same next month. I am trying to postpone the inevitable. What about a public assistance program in Oregon? As Tom said earlier, I am trying my best to think way outside the box.
Thank you - karen
