Free gas cards for the unemployed, no its not a scam, its a free government program. Investigative Guy John Mattes reveals a little known government help program to assist the unemployed in finding jobs. As part of the economic stimulus package The Dept. of Labor has given the states millions of dollars for supportive services for the unemployed. The services include “transportation assistance” in the form of gas cards and bus passes so the unemployed can go to job interviews. The program also provides money for new clothes for jobs interviews. It sounds all so good, a government program to help the unemployed….but the government has not told those who need it about the program.
Here is how to qualify for assistance:
- You must be currently receiving unemployment compensation
- You must sign up at work force offices for job counseling programs
- You must say you have expended all you resources and you need assistance from supportive services. You must say you need gas money to get to a potential job site or money for new clothes for an interview or assistance with rent or food.
YOU MUST STATE YOU NEED ASSISTANCE FOR JOB SEARCH ACTIVITIES, ALL OTHER RESOURCES HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED.
WE WANT TO FIND OUT HOW THE PROGRAM DOES OR DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU. LETS US KNOW WHAT YOUR EXPERIENCE IS.
