BlogHer is running two polls today. One is Halloween themed (scariest movies) and this one is just as alarming, but in a way that unfortunately hits much closer to home for a lot of folks in America today. We want to know how our community is faring with job loss and the struggle to find work. Unemployment rates have remained at a very high level nationwide for over two years now. How has this affected you and your family?
BlogHer's co-founder and CEO Lisa Stone has started a discussion about how to get Americans back to work on BlogHer.com. She says "We can make a difference as a community of bloggers and social media influencers: The BlogHer team is proud to partner with the folks at Starbucks and Opportunity Finance Network to get the word out about CreateJobsforUSA.org, launching officially on November 1st."
Want to hear more about this program? Want to ask a question about it? We are having a conference call with Howard Schultz, the Chairman and CEO of Starbucks tomorrow (11-1-2011) at 11am pacific time. We invite the BlogHer community to call and hear more about this exciting effort to create jobs.
Participant Number: 877-698-0629
Conference Code: 23564006
Please take a few moments to complete our our poll on unemployment below. If you don't see an answer that applies to you, or if you want to give more detail, please leave your thoughts as a comment.
