Cross-posting this from ESMB:
RightOn on wwp is the person who came up with the list of former members who've spoken out.
Here is his latest idea: Getting together all the stories about the difficulties in finding a job once a person leaves the cult. I'd say the SO stories would be very impactful.
The CoS doesn't give letters of recommendation, referrals, etc. Who knows what they'd say if a potential employer called and asked for verification of employment from an application from an ex seeking work???
How hard was it to find a job? What obstacles did you have to overcome? Did you list the CoS as a former employer on job applications?
I think this as well as the disconnection stories would be a real eye opener to many people.
If you'd like to share your story about this you can pm me and I'll pass it on to RightOn. Or you can post it here and I'll pass it on.
Can someone who is registered at OCMB post this there as well. The ex-SO site too?
