Ya know..When you are on Unemployment.. You have to CONTACT job sources.. AND if you are called for an interview.. YOU have to Go..

So, perhaps these Folks Messed their interviews on PURPOSE.. to Hold Out for their benefits to continue..

If a JOB is presented to YOU while on Unemployment.. GRAB IT!!

I know the unemployment numbers are lower now... but from what I see, it would still suck to look for a job right now. Things are still hard out there!

The good paying jobs for sure are hard to find.

There has to be a limit though... It's time to cut it off.

I am thankful for my husband who was recently laid-off from the coal mines not being one of those who are affected. My heart does go out to those who are affected. Although my husband only gets roughly 300.00/per week from unemployment - which isn't much. It's still something. This nation needs to change!!!!!

If he gets as much on unemployment as he does when he works where is the inscentive to get a job?

There should be no such thing as unemployment. you should save your own money and keep a savings incase something happens.

Obama said he would shut down coal mining and West Virginia democrats voted for him to be President anyway. Blame them.

Easier said than done..AS I said BEFORE!!

When on Unemployment.. YOU are required to Make Job Contacts.. AND if you are Lucky..You will get an interview..

IF ya screwed the interview UP on purpose..THINKING your benefits WILL be extended OR a Better job OFFER will come along..THEN you BASICALLY put your family at RISK!!

And..YOU are to BLAME!!

Folks get LAZY on Unemployment.. they lose their "CAN DO" altitude.. It's easier to just SETTLE for WHAT you are receiving..and LIVE WITH IT!!

You were not "cheated", you were not "granted".

Unemployment is NOT an entitlement.
