Richard Wilke is among those who were shocked to learn of that news-- the day before Thanksgiving. “It was more disbelief than anything. I got a formal letter saying I had been approved for these benefits, I had planned for these benefits through the end of the year. Of course I am job searching and interviewing. It was like a slap in the face,” Wilke said.
