BuckeyeMan72: I know,, buty as a contractor I know you can't collect unemployment. neither can I when I had to stop driving for Lyft
BuckeyeMan72: Karfen, it is a shame for sure.. people complained they wanted $15 per hour, they are getting it and now prefer to take the unemployment and stay home lol
PureDarkness: Sadly here we had to work longer hours, way more pressure, less staff, much more responsibilities and nothing more then normal pay which isn’t near enough
PureDarkness in reply to KarenBigRed: Yes ours wasn’t due to lay off it was people using every symptom to quarantine and stay home for 2 weeks, come back a day and do it all again. Totally rough lasted like 8 months
PureDarkness in reply to KarenBigRed: Agree but some were just using it to get out of work and not quarantining and was posting on fb about being at events and such dieting the period
General_Paine: It is trying to get us used to a "guaranteed income." Also consider that due to current government policies businesses are closing, and will probably soon move OUT of the US, not back INTO the USA. I predict by 2024 we are going to have a recession that will make the one during the end of the Clinton, and beginning of the Bush Administration look insignificant compared to what we will experience soon.
Troublinn: The one thing I have noticed is that everyone assumes that all these people that are taking the government dole(unemployment...ie. being lazy) actually do have a job they can go back to!
PureDarkness in reply to Troublinn: They can get a temporary job until the one they currently have reopens. Many places are hiring no need to sit home and wait around just my opinion
BuckeyeMan72: I am not against those that need help getting it.. I believe that those that can't make a living on the wage they are getting deserve help and should be getting it.. I a m just against those that want the handouts.. I know a couple people personally that could have gone back to their job, be it a different position but the same pay. They passed since it was a different position as they were making more on uneployment with the free government handout..
I am not against those that need food stamps, free healthcare if low income, even a sort of extra government assistance. I just feel that unless disabled they should be doing some type of work when it is available and I see way to many 'Help Wanted ' signs and paying $15 or more per hour.... call me old fashion but believe we should work for our money if capable of it..
VannyGirl in reply to BuckeyeMan72: I don’t blame them, it’s human nature to go to the source that pays more. These peope need to be paid a livable wage by their employers! There is a saying in the South, “ If you can’t afford to pay your workers a fair wage, then pick your own Damn Cotton”!!
