All she had was a pre-recorded message. When that was done, she hung up on me.
I’m not surprised. Nordlund makes $56 an hour. She doesn’t care about me. The person that destroyed my job doesn’t care about me, either - Steve Bullock.
Steve Bullock has absolutely no chance this November, for that very reason - he destroyed tens of thousands of jobs, and the woman he put in charge of giving those people a fraction of their paychecks won’t even answer the phone.
Of course... I shouldn’t be calling the top-dog for something as meaningless as my livelihood.
What I should do is call the Claims Processing Center.
But the Division doesn’t want me to do that. They tell me right when I got to their website that they cannot handle the call volume:
I know - I called them 28 times this morning, and each time I got a busy signal.
The reason they can’t handle this is because their boss - Steve Bullock - destroyed the economy and ruined tens of thousands of lives.
He actually thinks he can win an election this year.
I know - you can’t fix stupid
Anyways, the Division’s phone is always busy.
The reason for this is they don’t have enough workers. They don’t have enough workers because they weren’t planning on destroying thousands of lives, and therefore weren’t able to staff accordingly.
I filed for unemployment 26 days ago.
23 days ago, I received a letter from the state telling me I’d be getting $160 a week.
Normally it would take 14 days for that payment to reach me.
What a load of shit.
None of that money has come. When I try to contact the Division, they won’t talk to me. Lawsuits are going to be filed over this.
Oh...and there’s no $600 thrown on top of that $160, as the feds have promised.
Common working Americans have been thrown under the bus. Common working Montanans have been thrown under the bus.
We were promised when the government fat cats stole our jobs that we’d be getting a check in the mail.
They lied to us.
Trump lied to us. Bullock lied to us.
It’s the State of Montana’s job to get me that money. They failed, miserably.
I’m lucky - I have savings.
What about all those Montanans that don’t? What are they supposed to do?
We’re going to see credit card debt spiral out of control. There will be no debt-relief for this, like we’re seeing for small businesses and their grant-loans.
Our state doesn’t care about us.
