What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

Santa Claus

North Pole (or Christmas, Mich.; or my local mall)

Dear Santa:

First of all, how are you? It’s been a long time since I’ve written you — besides that Tweet I sent you the other night. With all the electronics and computers you and the elves have to process, I figured you’d have a Twitter account.

I’ve been good. (Yes, I know everyone who writes you says they’ve been good. But do they even bother to ask how you are? Kind of childish of them, isn’t it?)

Santa, I’ve had quite a year since last Christmas. If you know when I’ve been sleeping, and when I’ve been awake (or if you’ve been reading WSFAU), you also know I’ve been unemployed. You also know I’m far from the only one in Michigan who’s unemployed.

As the leading Christmas gift-giving specialist, Santa, I know you handle many requests at this time of year. However, please give special consideration to this one:

Jobs, Santa. We need jobs here in Michigan. We need jobs here in America.

You’re a big seasonal employer. Everyone knows you hire toy making elves (and one wannabe dentist). For all I know you keep your workforce busy year-round. Perhaps you could offer some workforce development advice to businesspeople and our government.

There are many of us who could use a shiny new job under our Christmas tree this holiday season. So if you could find some room in your big red bag for some jobs, we’d appreciate it.

Merry Christmas, Santa.
