Unemployed Virgin Mobile users get some help

Being unemployed can be an hell of a stressful time for anyone except maybe for the CEOs with their millions of dollars cushions to rest their fat asses on. For the rest of us though life in general gets a lot harder. With having to figure out just how you are going to be able to pay all those bills and still have a home to live in is enough to drive anyone off the deep end.

So it was interesting to read that Virgin Mobile has instituted a new service for their customers. The service is called the Pink Slip Protection and customers on Virgin's $49.95 monthly unlimited plan you can use the service to help pay your phone bill with Virgin while you are laid off. The only other stipulation is that you must be receiving unemployment benefits.
