Unemployment Benefits Crisis

Unemployment Benefits Crisis

I can vouch for the hospitality industry. You are not paid much. When working at the hotel, I had to get a second job to make ends meet. That was in 1998. The economy is worse today. So I understand the workers not wanting to come back. They should come up with ways for people to get paid more. Maybe they will draw more in.

However I don't agree that people who are getting their $300 unemployment weekly, which total up to $1200 a month. For some people that is just one bill payment. How we draw the conclusion that people don't want to go back to work because of the unemployment benefit. Where is the logic in that? If you talk to some of the people who is getting the benefits is still struggling. The government personnel who came to this conclusion is wrong. Just making excuses not to help people who have paid their share and federal taxes working on a job that they no longer have.
