I have an easier solution.
Cut the unemployment benefit now that the shutdown is basically over.
Whoa. I’m moving to Idaho.
The shirt I’ve seen women wear has a map of the state on it and the words:
No, you da ho.
Pennsylvania its possible to get $800 a week with no previous job history.
Not out of work.
Never looked for work, never had a job.
True it only lasts until the end of July then it drops to a mere $800 a month.
Why would anyone look for a job when they can have the spring and summer off for $40,000+ as an annualized salary for those months?
We already had during Obama and now, “XX Million Not in Work Force.”
books such as
Men Without Work: America’s Invisible Crisis (New Threats to Freedom Series) , 2016 ,
by Nicholas Eberstadt
discuss an ongoing trend that has to be worse now that they see firsthand how good it is to lie around, eat, drink, watch TV, play video and go out to have fun.
Or, go to work and have productivity standards, goals to meet, customer ratings of insults or praise, comparisons to other wage earners and putdowns from arrogant bosses.
If they don't have pre-existing conditions, it's back to work. An interview and medical disclosure form signed by the employee should be an easy way to determine if they actually do have pre-existing conditions.
Govt handouts make people lazy? Who knew?
End the gravy train and people will shuffle back to the workplace.
Around here they are calling it the “Coronacation”. I don’t get out much but went to a town 40 miles away yesterday. Interesting to see the beer joints with trucks and cars all around them mid-afternoon.
Locals have cut down large trees to block access to swimming holes down at the big creek to prevent access by the townies who were trashing the place and getting into drunken fights.
This truly has gone on long enough. They will never go back to work so long as they are paid more to do nothing.
No wonder they can’t find people.
Their (978) area code number is in MA. That is the area code for the part of MA north of Boston.
Part of the problem is the people staffing the unemployment offices are working hard to ensure their long term job security, they work to keep people on unemployment.
She knows a woman who was a long term office manager for decades. She was scheduled to retire shortly after the Corona B$ hit in the middle of March.
She informed the folks at the unemployment office of that reality, and they said don’t worry about it. Then, they signed her for 2 months of unemployment.
She is getting her retirement pay & SS and still some unemployment pay in spite of being retired and now working from her home 1 day every 2 weeks to handle payrolls and other issues.
All the crap that they threw into that $2.2 Trillion Dollar Kung Flu Stimulus Package will never be completely known.
Nothing more than Legalized Fraud. Remember the outcry when all those Katrina $2,000 Debit Cards were used at Casinos and Strip Clubs?
That was only part of a $50 Billion Dollar Government giveaway, a rounding error compared to the Kung Flu Government giveaway.
OTOH, I went 6½ years without a paycheck, working for two different start-ups...
