http://www.alternet.org/story/151998/6_so-called_%22job_creators%22_who_won't_hire_the_unemployed/Here is a site to start the comments that list several companies that I will avoid. I hated Allstate before. My wife used to be a customer until they charged us for insurance for a car that was undrivable at the time. Most companies would have simply cancelled the policy if you did not send a payment. Allstate actually dunned us. Of course, when I was hurt in a car accident, I had to obtain the services of an attorney just to get back part of what I lost. Just another reason to not use Allstate.
