The Greeneville Sun is packed with job openings everyday. There should be no unemployment paid until every job in Greeneville has been filled.

No wonder this country is in such bad shape.

A lot of jobs around here pay less than unemployment will pay (depending on the individual). Get laid off and your income decreases, take the first job no matter of the pay and your income decreases even more. Now, this unemployed person will more than likely seek government assistance to survive. Will you be the same one trashing those people as well?

There is a lot more to finding a job than just taking one that is listed. Some people aren't as versatile as yourself.

just because unemployment pays more than a lot of jobs out there, doesn't mean you should draw unemployment instead of getting a job.

People should work for their money, not get it handed to them.

Which is exactly why we need to eliminate welfare programs AND all these cush benefits like minimum wage and health insurance. That way people will have no choice but to work for everything they get, and no matter how little they get they will be glad to get it because anything would be better than nothing.

That is the attitude that our grandparents had. They worked all day every day for little or nothing in return, and still they thanked God and counted their blessings.

We need to get back to that. Back to the way things used to be in this country, in the 50's and 60's.

POINT OF INFORMATION: How old were YOU in the venerated 50's and 60's? Put another way, did YOU experience those eras, or do YOU read a lot about those times?

Are you mad because someone is drawing unemployment and you don't get to? Do you really think someone would choose to be on unemployment and barely get by, than to work for decent pay? LOL

By the way, everyone who works pays into unemployment. Why shouldn't those people who are laid off be able to use that as assistance while looking for a decent job? Are you really this jaded against people drawing unemployment? That speaks clearly for what kind of person you are.

Well, in the 50's and 60's you only had white men in the workforce. Is that what you are getting at? I mean... without minorities or women working, I bet there would be plenty of good jobs for you!

Unemployment at one time was a good thing, but now it's being abused, just like every other program out there to help people. You were only supposed to draw for so many weeks and then you better get a job. But now they are saying since there's no jobs out there, they are going to extend your benefits.

There's jobs out there, people are just to lazy to work. The state used up all it's unemployment benefits, so they raise the businesses rates to get more money. In this economy small businesses are having hard enough time keeping the doors open and the state just wants to keep sucking more from them to feed the deadbeats.

Women and minorities vote so they can get anything they can for free. That is the only reason democraps are winning elections.

Democraps are taking from working people and giving to deadbeat, drug head, lazy, thieving, baby making, of any color, trash.

And that's the bottom line, cause Stone Cold said so!

Everyone who has a back injury that is getting benefits will say "it is real". Can you not find a job that doesn't require strenuous work? IM SURE! As for your food stamp issue, grow a garden since you are home 24/7.

What's funny is you see these people on disability and foods tamps and the club doing shots. Can you really be considered disabled if you can party at a bar?
