If you are on unemployment, it would be stupid for you to accept any job that paid less than $16.00 per hour. At one time, unemployment paid just enough to get by. Today, it's more or less a livable wage.<quoted text>sad thing is that study is true you are better off on welfare because I was watching the news and they telling about all these jobs these companies have but only pay about 9 to 11 dollars and they cant get anyone to fill but I can see why but to me the republican back when the controlled house wanted to turn the welfare program into subsidy program for Businesses so they could pay lower wages and why it became welfare for work because they would be entitled to Welfare plus wages.
Studies show that the longer you are on unemployment, the more you are frowned upon by potential employers. If not for unemployment, people would be taking those $9.00 to $11.00 jobs. They would just have to work more hours until something better came along. I know I've done it several times in my life. But no. Let's extend unemployment benefits for up to 2 years instead.
