You're absolutely right. People have no motivation to work when it's easier to get more money for doing nothing. I would also add to what you said the fact that eliminating illegal aliens from this country would increase wages and make lower tier jobs more attractive.I don't understand how an intelligent moticated person can be unemployed for more than three months.
Not being able to find job you like, sure.
Not being able to find a job related to your education or previous occupation, yes.
But floundering dead in the water for a full year???
A Mexican who leaves his family and friends behind, travels 2,000 miles to enter the US illegally, having no education or English, can land a job earning $15 an hour.
I'd be curious to hear feedback from some of you guys, especially those of you who are currently unemployed, about your perspective on this. Do you feel that as an entitled American citizen, you are actually at a disadvantage?
If someone pulled the safety net out from under you, and you knew there would be no chance of government going forward, would that actually motivate you to seek avenues of employment that you havn't considered yet?
