    DO NOTHING NUNES HERE IS THE LATEST JOB REPORT YOU TELL YOUR REJECT REPUBLICAN PARTY
    Jobless claims jump to highest level since late March

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The number of people filing new claims for unemployment benefits jumped last week to the highest level since late March.

    The Labor Department reported Thursday that new applications for jobless benefits rose to 384,000, an increase of 25,000 from the previous week.

    That was a much bigger gain than analysts had been expecting and indicated that the labor market still remains under pressure. Last week, the government reported that the unemployment rate jumped to 5.5 percent, up from 5 percent in April. That was the biggest one-month gain in 22 years.

    We are displeased with your NAY vote on H.R.5749. Please be aware that unemployed Republicans in CALIFORNIA won’t be voting for you or the other Republicans anymore, they will be voting for Democrats. The most upsetting idea you and your Republican Cohorts presented is that a person would be eligible for a year of unemployment benefits after working only a week! That is VERY misleading, it makes it seem like a person would be eligible for a large amount of money, when that is NOT the case. People need to know the truth. The truth is each state has eligibility requirements and stipulations for earning a certain amount in a certain period of time in order to be even eligible for any state benefits. The amount of the state benefit is only about 1/3 of your previously salary, and depends on the total amount earned while working during the look back period. Here in ILLINOIS you need to earn a minimum of $1600 in the look back period which consists of 4 quarters. Therefore a person who worked part time for one week and earned $1600 in that week would only be paid $50 a week for 26 weeks. Is $50 a full benefit to you? For this little amount of money, you and the other Republicans jeopardized this legislation, you are making millions of people continue to hurt and be desperate. We are not happy with you or the other Republicans, now your job is in jeopardy.

    Veterans are coming back from Iraq with a shrinking job market and inflation. Devin Nunes voted no on HR5749 and in turn shut many veterans out of the American dream they have just defended for all of us. Don’t let her forget how wrong he was and how unemployment extensions should have been passed in the original economic stimulus plan. Let him know this issue is an emergency and that Washington needs to pass legislation to help the hard hit American worker and Iraq veteran NOW!!!

    How dumb can you be to vote against HR5749 when your own Republican Governor sent a bill to Congress urging support and immediate passage? Your state is bankrupt. It’s not joke and the numbers for unemployment are low for the state still because many have exhausted their benefits. And we are still ranked third. Your obvious misrepresentation of the people shows your incompetence and you are going to be voted out in November as a result of it. California let’s clean house!!!!!!!

    This is what happens Nunes when the Government cuts off people’s unemployment and when the economy is weak and there are no good paying jobs. Is this the vibrant American economy that I hear the Republicans talk about so much? Are these the benefits of Free Trade Agreements?

    L.A. seeing more people living out of their cars

    By CHRISTINA HOAG, Associated Press Writer Mon Jun 23, 2:48 PM ET

    LOS ANGELES – Having lost her job and her three-bedroom house, Darlene Knoll has joined the legions of downwardly mobile who are four wheels away from homelessness.

    She is living out of her shabby 1978 RV, and every night she has to look for a place to park where she won’t get hassled by the cops or insulted by residents.

    “I’m not a piece of trash,” the former home health-care aide said as she stroked one of five dogs in her cramped quarters parked in the waterfront community of Marina del Rey.

    Amid the foreclosure crisis and the shaky economy, some California cities are seeing an increase in the number of people living out of their cars, vans or RVs.

    Acting on complaints from homeowners, the Los Angeles City Council got tough earlier this year by forbidding nearly all overnight parking in residential neighborhoods such as South Brentwood.

    But some people are just crowding into other parts of the city, including the seaside community of Venice, where dozens of rusty, dilapidated campers can be seen lined up outside neat single-family homes. The stench of urine emanates from a few of the vehicles, and some residents say they have seen human waste left behind.

    “They’re nasty and gnarly,” said Venice resident Jeff Scharlin. “We’ve heard about drug dealing and prostitution in them. I’ve never seen it, but visually they’re a blight and they take up parking space.”

    In Los Angeles, as in many other cities, it is illegal to live in vehicles on public streets. But the law is not easy to enforce. Police have to enter a vehicle to find signs that people are living there, such as cooking or sleeping, and occupants often refuse to answer when cops knock.

    An easier way is to restrict overnight parking. In L.A., a first offense carries a $50 fine, and subsequent violations can cost as much as $100.

    Parking-enforcement officers often give vehicle owners a warning and tell them to move on before issuing a ticket, and that usually solves the problem, said Alan Willis, a city transportation engineer. But other cities in the area are not as lenient.

    “I had my motor home towed in Culver City. It cost me $500 to get it out,” said Desiri Hawkins, who lives in a small RV in Venice. “I got ticketed in Santa Monica and had to go to court.”

    Tourist states with temperate climates, such as California and Florida, have long been magnets for the homeless. Los Angeles is the nation’s homelessness capital, with an estimated 73,000 people on the streets. A survey of 3,230 homeless people last year in Los Angeles County found nearly 7 percent living in vehicles, according to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.

    “It’s trending toward an increase,” said Michael Stoop, acting executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless. “People would rather live in a vehicle than wind up in a shelter, and you can’t stay on a friend’s couch forever.”

    People living out of their cars or campers tend to be more well-off than the homeless on the street. They usually have jobs or disability checks that enable them to maintain an old camper but do not allow them to afford rent.

    “For more working-class and lower-middle-class people, the car is the first stop of being homeless, and sometimes it turns out to be a long stop,” said Gary Blasi, a University of California, Los Angeles, law professor and activist on homeless issues.

    Some Venice residents are clamoring for overnight parking restrictions. But parking limits in oceanfront neighborhoods are problematic because the California Coastal Commission requires communities to accommodate surfers, fishermen and other early-morning beachgoers.

    “The complaints are getting louder and louder,” said Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl.

    For years, some cities such as Santa Barbara, Calif., and Eugene, Ore., have accommodated people who live out of their vehicles. Activists in Venice are looking at some of those ideas. Santa Barbara, for example, allows vehicles to stay from 7 p.m to 7 a.m. in church and city parking lots.

    Knoll said she can barely afford to drive around with the rising price of gasoline eating away at the $950 monthly disability check she receives because of mental illness.

    She said she is also sick of police waking her up in the wee hours by pounding on her vehicle with their nightsticks, and she is tired of fighting with residents who call her “lowlife scum” and hurl other insults.

    “We need somewhere we can have a safe haven, where we won’t be harassed,” Knoll said as the wind from a passing car rocked her RV. “I never thought I’d be living like this, but I’m stuck. This is it for me.”
