I used my brother as ONE example. Unemployment assistance is designed to give a temporary safety net to someone who has been laid off. It NEVER has been intended to be a perpetual check for the unemployed at the taxpayers expense, certainly not for 99 friggin motnhs, but its an important aid for someone whos between jobs.<quoted text>STFU, you "charitable" Christian.
Your brother is no more representative of the masses at large than YOU are, RR.
BTW, here in Florida, unemployment is not at ALL guaranteed if the person cannot provide proof that they are seeking employment, and here in Florida, the Unemployment Offices actually check up on the places that those receiving benefits list as places they have looked for work.
I would imagine that Florida is not the only state now taking a more proactive stance in checking up on/confirming what receivers of benefits tell them.
And sorry, bub- but here in Florida, the maximum benefit one can receive is $275/week which the majority of people here can NOT live on and I've known several people here who lost their jobs and couldn't find a new one fast enough in order to be able to actually make ends meet- here in Florida,$275/week doesn't cut it.
You use ONE example- your brother- as the "type of people" who are on unemployment?
Wow- you need to get out more, RR.
And since you say you have carte blanche with your boss to play on the computer all day long, you might want to use some of that time to at least attempt to back up the sh*t you talk- not that you can, but you can at least try.
People who abuse the unemployment benefit system hurt those who genuinly need it and us the taxpayers.
