How many of them should be out there sweeping sidewalks, mowing parks and mopping city hall for these checks?

Not a bad idea...Maybe your opportunity to do that won't be far down the road...

Meh, I prefer not only to stop shipping jobs to China but do whatever it takes to get them back...But heh, that's just me...

That idea is clearly off the radar for our globalist politicians...So we are going to pay, and pay, and pay...

sure, tell that to the AFSCME or the other public employee unions.

‘You are WHAT! How are we going to feather bed all those 60 - 70 Grand per year jobs for sweeping g the streets that never get swept if you put a bunch of unemployed workers in those rolls.’

Never going to happen. Most states have UE insurance at $300 - $450 PER WEEK and that is for people at the HIGHEST earning level. People who made Seventy Eighty and 100K per year or more are sitting on UE because the available jobs are NOTY for them. They can not get hired even if they wanted them because the employer knows the second they get a better job or one in their field, they are gone.

Cold hard fact time. THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR MANY UNEMPLOYED!

you know, i support this idea -- strongly support it

But I've never been in such a position that needed to take in welfare checks. When I last moved and was without a job for 2 months I even contemplated doing something like that (I'm an engineer so jobs are a bit easier to get) to add to the family kitty, but got a job in my field before this

Has any freeper been in such a position -- I would like to give examples to any leftists I know. Don't have to be names, just notes to tell people.

I support the idea that if you want unemployment benefits you gotta to something -- can be small, as you say, or helping old people or something. And also the idea that you gotta spend 1 year helping out the nation in some way -- could be enlisting, could be helping the old, working in small towns etc. and THEN you get the right to vote -- earn the right to vote
