Help wanted - unemployed need not apply

You won't believe this.

Major websites like Monster.com have been running classified ads that tell unemployed people not to apply for open jobs? How are we supposed to solve our unemployment crisis if the only way to GET a job is to already HAVE a job?

I signed a petition calling on the companies to refuse these ads, and you know how they responded: They had their lawyers deliver a letter telling us to "Cease and Desist" talking about the unemployed!

I've had it with these unaccountable corporations. If you agree that discriminating against unemployed people is wrong, then please join me and sign this petition:
