We need to make a change so that Michigans unemployed numbers go down. Michigan works programs need to be revised so that we are provided better resources, and better methods in finding us work.
The people at Michigan works treat us all like a bunch of idiots. They send us all to apply at the same jobs in the masses. They are discriminating, and they are sexist. They come up with ridiculous assumptions about what you should and should not do. There should be a everyday shuttle service to take individuals around and let them apply at businesses directly. Instead, they allow people to apply at half wit jobs on craigslist like cable equipment recovery. Or give you mini buss tokens to go around and apply at businesses. I don't know if any of you have ever used the mini buss service. But it is completely unreliable. If someone was depending on the mini buss for transport to and from work they would end up getting fired. And if you worked a night job the mini buss would be out of the question. Im pretty sure the idea is not only to just find a job, any job. But to find a job that that is long term, So that person doesn't end up on unemployment, or back in the Michigan works program. If they helped people find jobs that an individual can thrive in, and feel accomplished at the same time. They would be less likely to end up back in the system. Michigan works have many rules that need to be changed. And I personally believe they could do a way better job at finding us work than what they are doing. The program as of now, is in my opinion, a complete waste of time and tax money.
