A friend of mine heard a story about an unemployed guy who finally accepted a new job that paid 50k less than the job he had before unemployment. The reason he took this job is that some part of the gov't. Is paying the 50k difference! So its essentially a program that props up the employment statistics while still spending massive amounts of money.
The question is, does anyone know if this is true or the name of the program or agency that may be doing this?
There are some programs for “displaced workers” or those participating in government-sponsored training programs where the government picks-up a portion of their starting wage as an incentive to hire them.
My guess is that most get laid-off the day after the incentives run out.
How do I get in on this? I’m $30K short of my high water mark. I want some government money too.
From what I understand, it is only those affected by NAFTA. It’s a special program.
I don’t think they pay exactly what you making before though. Can’t imagine him making $50k on unemployment.
Thanks, I would bet its some very limited special program like you say..
One of my best buds works for Worksource and across his office is another state-sponsored office which provides FREE service to pay for your electricity if you are at the “poverty level”. When I pick him up for lunch, there’s sometimes a fist fight or a commotion going on on that side of the floor. Then I noticed the peeps lining up and it’s 95% Holder’s peeps. Your story might hold true with the many freebie crap this gubmint’ provides to the low IQ voters.
I’ve got you beat. Making $38,000 less and working more hours to boot.
Yes, but my % of cut is worse by volume. I’M STRUGGLING MORE THAN YOU!
Where are my goodies?!!
