Pennsylvania’s oil industry has seen better days. The state’s steel industry has seen better days. And the state’s coal industry has seen better days, too. The Keystone State has been through a lot of ups and downs in its time and always bounces back and we’re confident it will bounce back again.
But the fact is, a lot of Pennsylvania residents could use a little help right now. As of May 2011 the unemployment rate is a disappointing 7.4%. The fact that that is lower than the national average is of little solace to those Keystone Staters who find themselves without a steady income.
Fear not, Pennsylvanians. The Lifeline phone service program can help you get a free cell phone and free monthly minutes, from the government. At least that is one less bill to pay.
