Hoarding is Alive and Well in Today’s Corporate World
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 7/2011
With the latest July-2011 -jobs update- spelling doom and gloom for the 15 million and more unemployed; Corporate America has just fired another salvo at the US Labor Department by sending thousands more back out unto the unemployment lines. Can you be defined as; an older American, handicapped, poor and Latino or Black or any number of other persons -who fall- or have fallen- below the poverty line; an ex-felon or someone with a criminal record, or just simply a member of the displaced long-term unemployed? If you said “yes” to any or a combination of any of the above, your chances of finding and securing a job are miserably minute. Why? As in Hitler’s era “undesirables” where those type-cast as a dispensable/expendables and as it reads on dictionary.reference.com the definition for dispensable is “–adjective 1. capable of being dispensed with or done without; not necessary or essential. 2. capable of being dispensed or administered.” It has come to my attention that hoarding did not go out with the last Neanderthal Ice Age or neither has it’s popularity been dimminished by the “Hoarders” show over satelite networks. No, my friends- the practice of hoarding is still alive and well across the globe. But, in my opinion the most hideous of places Hoarding is alive and growing is in Corporate America, –as-well-as-anywhere the possibility of a job will exchange hands between an employer or its agents and any possible propsect. Today, employers and their agents hoard jobs!! The reasons why they do this dispicable act or acts is for the same reasons a child hoards candy or toys or anyting near them. Hoarding is a nother way of excercising one’s power around their subordinates or peers. One barters this power by way of exchanging favors such as for admiration, status imaging, prowess, click building and maintenance and keeping out certain members of societal groups, etc.,,etc.,,! In some circles hoarding is big business and profitable for certain members of a specific race. Take for example, why are so many firemen and police “public servants” in the upper US East Coast members of a specific ethnic group? When one looks at the statistics one -like me- walks away scratching his head. Even in the face of all the laws that says that this should not be happening it is -right before- our eyes. That is hoarding! There are well over 15 million Americans today unemployed and –because- I have brought this issue up -I will be demonized. Not for speaking the truth –but- for not keeping my mouth shut and simply finding some –whole- somewhere unheard and unseen. Going against the grain has it’s pitfalls -in this society- and some have been buried like out in the middle of some landfill. Never the less, hoarding will continue unabatted in Corporate America -untill- those behind the walls of the US Labor Department decide to get up off their over- paid tushes and do something about it.
Your tireless unpaid Societal Servant,

Let’s all sign this petition so that we can help a few Americnas get a real job! Shall We?
OVERVIEW OF MY PETITION ON CHANGE.ORG
By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2011-NDMH
Get America Working Again With My New Nationwide Program
My new program is important because nothing is getting done to help get a greater number of the 15 to 20 million million people back to work. Corporations have become very skilled at figuring out ways to get more done with less. Because of the lucrative rewards of Workforce Initiatives via Job Credits many companies have adopted unspoken rules and practices of separating the hiring pool and favoring TANF recipients and those on public assistance over others who are searching for work but don’t meet the Workforce Guidelines. By limiting the workforce to a certain segment of the population; this would benefit many corporations scavenging for job credits which I feel is borderline discrimination. Furthermore, this only helps to isolate available individuals seeking employment and forces them back to the unemployment lines. The states are doing very little to help get the long term back to work when they are not scrutinizing the process of hiring. Fifteen Million unemployed tells me there is something wrong here that needs to get fixed quick and forcing capable people back out on the streets while favoring others because that helps to line your pockets, is shameful and unfair. Outsourcing jobs has practically destroyed the semi skilled to skilled positions out there, while streamlining work details has affected the overall total makeup of most companies. Farming out -hiring processes- to temporary staffing agencies in order to transfer most of the payroll and general benefit responsibilities tells me that corporations are still up to their old tricks. They are battening down the hatches and turning the American Workforce into another disposable commodity! In a society where more and more pressure is being placed on the few members of the workforce not affected by permanent lay offs or cut backs.
THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF MY NEW NATIONWIDE PROGRAM:
A Petition in Support of a Two Part Referendum:
PART II: In Order to Restore Our Economic Engine and Thereby Restore the Lives of 15 Million or More Unemployed Americans this Referendum Must Require Provisions for the Following to be Included as Guarantees to Insure the Success of this Effort.
Statement of Provisions:
When have you heard the feds going after any state because they reneged on their mandatory obligations to create an X number of jobs? What if we could (Provision #1) make them create X number of jobs and base that figure on the rate of unemployed individuals? So that now they have a federally mandated obligation to create jobs in their respective states. But wait it gets better! What if tied to this were another (Provision #2) obligation that would require every state department of labor to audit all their agencies within their state to make sure that all the information they provide to prospective job seekers was up to date, guaranteed reliable and that the jobs they sought out for job seekers were qualified jobs that met guidelines. Which would guarantee a livable wage, not just based on the states minimum wage criteria -but- based on the particular individuals set of circumstances. For example if you have an individual who was making $2,000 per month but lost their job through no fault of their own? Then, the new guidelines would have to say that a formula based on that persons financial obligations to his family, to the roof over his or her head, to children living outside the home; for which he or she is responsible for providing every day subsistence -to be- counted including all his debts to creditors and any payments he or she is obligated to make. (Provision #3) To guarantee that while they are unemployed and for three years after they are reemployed that no court action can be taken against them for any unpaid fines, unpaid court orders, unpaid tax liens, unpaid backed up child support, unpaid student loans obligations, unpaid traffic fines, unpaid property taxes, unpaid obligations to any loans including interest. This is a mandate; a referendum to see if it will be possible for the American people to get back on their feet without having to look over their backs just when they finally find work. It gives them piece of mind, and just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. Check this out! (Provision #4) A guarantee that if once they do get a job that satisfies all their necessities and they keep that job for a length of three years without interruption and they abide by all the rules of the prescribed agreement; that a percentage of their fines and debt will be forgiven and some of their debt will be forgiven in its entirety. How does this nation or this government expect to help get America back on its feet and productive again if all it wants to do is bail out the rich and famous and do nothing to bail out the long term unemployed and hurting. People are cash strapped, about to loose their homes and many already have; to hungry lenders. But if we could put a stop to that and guarantee to the American people that we will draw up a plan to help get them back on their feet and it will start with an agreement of -debt forgiveness- if they abide by all the rules of this agreement and in 36 months or so they can be almost or completely debt free. I imagine that, the small loan you may owe your old alma mater disappeared because you abided by the agreement that guaranteed you freedom and your transcripts back to go out and continue your blocked education dreams? Imagine all but a portion of your property taxes disappeared because you made the right decision and stuck by the plan. Imagine those huge federal student loan debts reduced so drastically you finally know you can breathe again because you followed the agreement guidelines. Imagine all debt gone or almost gone because you finally got an agreement that will guaranteed to bail you out too; just like the big three and the multi-million financial institutions got? So what do you think? We got to roll up our sleeves and get 15 million people back on their feet -breathing again- and no care in the world for them; no more looking behind their shoulder, no more changing addresses every time the government or the credit card companies or the banks or any debtors come with the garnishment notices and liens? All gone or almost gone! Give us three years of your life, get through our boot camp Agreement Guidelines and soon you will have the freedom to travel, to invest again, to never again be afraid to open up a bank account and start saving again. Imagine, guaranteed job training in the field d of your choice, guaranteed pay while training that meets or exceeds your wildest expectations (rewards incentives for job training) just follow our guidelines that is all we ask. Give us three years of your time and we will get you back on track. After all the big financial institutions got back on track within 18 months as well as the big three! Why can’t we make that promise to the American people? Wait a minute I think I hear a question from the peanut gallery on the right side of the aisle, yes ok what is it? Oh yes your asking how are we gonna pay for this socialist agenda? Hmm?? Let see, uhumm well one day at a time! This is an investment in the American people and on this nation’s economy. I think the rich corporations would be glad to pitch in, let’s see, oh yes private philanthropists; J. Paul Getty what did you say you’ll chip in a few hundred billion? My goodness I think that just about will cover it! But if there are any other generous benefactors out there, oh yeah, Donald Trump, glad to make your acquaintance; for once you’re investing in the real apprentices! And oh yeah Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and all our friends in the Middle East who have enjoyed the benefits of all our gestures of good will –courtesy- of the US Armed Forces; of course will take your check, oh wait a minute better send it to our Pay Pal account, its quicker! Oh and Canada –yes- I forgot about that small issue of Free Trade; sure will take a check, how much $100.00 Billion -no problem- you can send the rest in quarterly installments to the Peoples National Referendum Headquarters C/O to the officer in charge of the accounts to Restore the Jobs and Lives of 15 Million Americans. But wait, you say you can’t do it? Okay, send him back to the back of the line! Back to when we were being held hostage by student loans, revolving unemployment lines AND short term jobs, etc.,!

If you made it to the bottom of this document you may want to take another closer look at what I already mentioned above as to the why so many millions of Americans with Land and Home Contract Package Deals for purchase of homes have been completely ignored by everyone up on Capital Hill; during and after all the hearings and hoopla over the mortgage spectacles in the face of this most horrific of recessions. Shameful!!
Failure to Help the Less Fortunate Amongst us May be the Saddest Legacy we Leave Behind
Some Factual Data on the Transportation Needs of the Poor and Aging Populations in Rural Areas
Written and Edited by John R. Hernandez, Jr.
Hello everyone, I wanted to thank you all for your help with this petition and I thought I would offer you some scholarly data that might interest you. I have wanted to write about this issue for ever! I can remember putting proposals together as far back as some 15 to 20 years ago; that dealt with any social issue I came across. I have been a victim of transportation problems as I am sure some of you have at one time or another, in your life. The only research I did for this petition was the images that have been embedded in my mind throughout the years. The following data -you will find here- I decided to bring it to your attention –because- I have been concerned about the lack of attention or action this petition has been getting; as well as, I have been concerned about the lack of attention my other petitions have been getting. So, last night on the 17th of July I gathered up some factual data. Hoping, that your friends and family and their friends will see the facts as they have been collected. Although as the authors and researchers suggest that, in this extremely large study, “The aim of this study was to understand rural Black and White older adults’ self-reports of transportation difficulty.” The data collected by these statisticians reveals to us that there is a need for free and expanded transportation services that should be provided for the poor in rural areas and especially to those in the aging populations. Below are sample quotes from different investigators which reveal the negative effects of inadequate transportation services on the poor and elderly in rural areas. If you would like to study this subject further I urge you to visit;
“Transportation Difficulty of Black and White Rural Older Adults Nan Sook Park, Ph.D.,ab Lucinda L. Roff, Ph.D.,ab Fei Sun, Ph.D.,bc Michael W. Parker, Ph.D.,ab David L. Klemmack, Ph.D.,bd Patricia Sawyer, Ph.D.,ef and Richard M. Allman, M.D.efga School of Social Work, The University of Alabamab Center for Mental Health and Aging, The University of Alabamac Department of Social Work, Arizona State University New College Program and Department of Criminal Justice, The University of Alabama The Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics, and Palliative Care, University of Alabama at Birmingham Center for Aging, University of Alabama at Birmingham[,] Birmingham/Atlanta VA Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center Corresponding Author: Nan Sook Park, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, Box 870314, The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35487-0314, Phone: (205) 348-4441, Fax: (205) 348-9419, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The author’s analysis reveals that, “Difficulty with transportation in rural settings can result in social isolation and deterioration of quality of life in addition to limited access to services. In emergency circumstances,… transportation difficulty can mean the difference between life and death (Gullette, 2006; Parker et al., 2007).” <<Direct quote from their webpages.
Furthermore, “Rural residents disproportionately experience transportation difficulty because rural areas are sparsely populated and lack public transportation services (Arcury et al., 2005a, 2005b). Rural elders are subject to higher transportation costs than their urban counterparts because walking and public transportation are typically not feasible options, and their trips are likely to be longer (Rosenbloom, 2004).” And, “Although transportation fundamentally influences access to various services and thus affects quality of life, 40% of the U.S. population in rural areas have no public transportation services available, and 25% have insufficient transportation (Glasgow, 2000a). In rural areas without public transportation, taxi services are rare or likely to be prohibitively expensive. Although some senior centers in rural areas provide van transportation, rural elders’ transportation options are typically limited to walking, bicycling, or using a private vehicle.” In Addition to that the authors of these papers suggest that, “The proportion of older persons who live in rural areas (14.7%) is higher than in metropolitan areas (11.9%) and rural older adults have to travel longer distances than urban older adults to access services and activities (Rosenbloom, 2004). Rural older adults tend to be older, have lower economic status, and be in poorer health than urban older adults (Roff & Klemmack, 2003).” My Thanks to all scientists and researchers who worked tirelessly on these projects to help with this issue -as I have- with this petition in my own small way -as well as- all of you who have taken the time to sign it and tell everyone you know; the importance of expanding transportation to the rural poor and elderly populations cannot be overlooked any longer. Can you imagine, when I was a small child I remember walking along dilapidated planks of old wood after the monsoon rains just to keep from slipping into the mud holes left behind. In those days the only means of transportation in the poorest of areas were your feet.
Thanks again, John R. Hernandez, Jr.
