To the Editor:
A reported statistic, assuming it's accurate, stated that 40% of people earning $40,000 or less are amongst the 16% unemployed in the United States.
The group consists of unskilled workers such as waiters, waitresses, cooks, laborers, teachers aides, food store checkers, delivery people, etc.
I am embarrassed to admit that I don't have any gainful employment and yet I'm much better off than the 40%. My wife and I received a check for $2,400 as part of the relief package.
I don't need it and I would assume that many of you reading this comment are in the same position. For those who aren't as fortunate, I wish you a speedy turnaround.
I question what criteria was used to see that the money got to workers and businesses that had the greatest need rather than a random distribution to everyone.
The added indebtedness of trillions of dollars to ourselves was nothing more than a political feel good gesture. I'm embarrassed to observe helter skelter planning and execution of relief plans.
Jeff Bezos of Amazon figured out how to increase his company's market share and service that market and our country is subject to, and at the mercy of, ineptness and incompetence at many levels.
Go figure! Help, where it is needed most , is not on the way!
