Job Seekers Being Told ‘If You’re Unemployed, Don’t Apply’

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento job fair highlighted an unexpected challenge for some unemployed people hoping to get back into the workforce.  Many of those unemployed are being ‘if you don’t have a job, don’t bother applying’.

Workers with no jobs who have plenty of experience and education flocked to a job fair Wednesday that advertised employers were looking to fill 700 jobs.  Nearly 2,000 people showed up to the fair.

 But some of the unemployed job seekers say they are facing a new challenge as some companies aren’t even considering applicants who are currently unemployed.  Some companies have even gone as far as posting signs, stating you must have a job just to fill out an application.

The national unemployment project calls that bad for the economy.

“I’m thinking wait a minute. We’re supposed to be hiring people who are looking for work.  If you’re already working you don’t need a job, said Connie Rozier who is unemployed and looking for work.

Some employers admit they believe the unemployed have lost their skills or workers who are currently employed, are better qualified.

    The person who wrote this article should be looking for another job. It is filled with typos. Can someone please fix them?

    seemed pretty good), and including oil, with nice anticipation we turned on the motor.
