My husband got a job with Granite Construction working on the Folsom Dam in Ca. This was presented to us as the second largest job in America and run by the Department of Home Land Security. This job is supposed to be creating jobs for these desperate out of work carpenters/construction workers. Come to find out they are hiring guys every couple of days and firing them right after. Dozens upon dozens of men who went from unemployment to working, only to be let off and now unable to collect the unemployment that keeps a roof over our children’s head and food in their mouth. And, there isn’t ANY work available.
They are running a numbers game to meet a quota. This for my family sunk us financially! I need major medical attention and based serious financial decisions regarding that care when they hired my husband -WHEN THEY NEVER INTENDED ON KEEPING HIM!! I had a cheaper (less desireable) alternative and passed it by because of the illusion of job security. WE ARE RUINED!!
I thanked the President the DAY HE GOT THE JOB. It was ALL we had! And now we find out the TARP program that is set before us, keeping us in our home, and holding together body and soul, is a sham! Being so grossly managed that it is RUINING lives NOT HELPING!!! Unemployment will be about $30. after this scam.
I BEG you, I plead, please fix this!
I will be losing my home, cannot feed my family, and lost the tiny hold we had keeping us afloat. My husband has NEVER been so discouraged and cannot figure out what he did wrong. Granite will not tell him. I have never seen him (even through this horrible economy) so defeated. They broke what he had left in him.
I have been advised to ask help from every side, Dan Lungren and have already talked to Jerry Brown’s office to no avail. My husband’s Union knows about this and is too weak to stop it from happening. This company has abused the power you created in order to help the American people. We need action. I need YOU!
