That will show a HUGE decrease in the next unemployment rate report. After all, the number of people receiving unemployment benefits is what is used to determine it. Unlike the very real percentage of unemployed Americans.

Insanity.

PLUS this will help offset the MASSIVE NUMBERS of additions to the unemployment rolls as employers lay off workers in anticipation of Commiecare. That has already begun....

GOOD.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29247816



I would agree with you *IF* everyone on the rolls was a taker/loser, too lazy to work, sitting around on their fat ass eating Cheetoes all day.

Then there are those like I am: about 50, never drew benefits before, worked my entire life, laid off when my work went to INDIA, and only been drawing for 9 months. I'm in school full-time, retraining for something else, and NEED that money to live on.

Not everyone drawing UE is a loser.
 Quoting: Hahahaha 28872856


When I got laid off from my job, I refused unemployment and worked 2 jobs to make up 40 hours s week.

Now who is the loser?

I worked in the same industry for almost 30 years. Now that it's dead it's time to retrain to do something else -- which is what I'm doing.

When I was younger, I worked as many as 3 jobs.

I paid into this system. So FUCK OFF!!!

From the senator’s office:

… spending on federal welfare benefits, if converted into cash payments, equals enough to provide $30.60 per hour, 40 hours per week, to each household living below poverty. The median household hourly wage is $25.03. After accounting for federal taxes, the median hourly wage drops to between $21.50 and $23.45, depending on a household’s deductions and filing status. State and local taxes further reduce the median household’s hourly earnings. By contrast, welfare benefits are not taxed.

UE benefits are NOT welfare and ARE taxed.

I have never been unemployed except for the few days to switch jobs (5 changes in my life). I hold a GED and make 124.000 a year. This current position is the lowest in 11 years.

The equation for work is just find a job and be the best mother fucker at it. It's simple.

Stop worrying about the fiscal cliff. John Boehner and his sissy boys will surrender. They will put together some crap package, praise it, and go home.

The economy will grow worse and those clowns and the criminal in the WH will blame each other. None of it will matter in terms of the next election because the Democrooks have found out that they can rig the elections and the Republicans will lay down and pretend nothing illegal happened.

same exact way the democrats layed down when bush stole the election.

I know it isn't supposed to be forever. I only need it for another year.

There is ZERO loan money available for summer school. They only offer it for fall and spring.

I have already taken out loans, asshole. As a freshman (freshmen receive less than sophomores), it still isn't enough to pay for everything.

I'm a FT student with a 4.0 GPA. Working will lower my GPA and eat up tons of study time. I am sans a vehicle so would have to ride the bus to work and back. Also, at 50 I can't pull allnighters like the 20-somethings.
