Did the same people that wrote the rules for milking the top write the same rules for milking the bottom? Who writes the rules for the guy in the middle getting squeezed from both sides? I think he must be on break!

Mother Nature's way is still the best. If a body or family can't take care of themselves, they get ate by the predators. Cruel, but Mother Nature isn't in debt 27 Trillion from handouts.

Here's what gets my goat. People getting Social Security yet still under full retirement age aren't allowed to work for extra money if they get $1200 or more from SS. Some of the best, most willing people aren't allowed to work. Things are going to have to get much worse before it gets any better.

I say now that your retired you probably should double your coyote take this year. It seems the more free time I have the more busy I get. Good luck and enjoy your retirement.

It's a mixed up world. My SIL is a foreman at a small factory near home. They worked the Covid shutdown almost non-stop. I believe they laid off everyone for a short time. My SIL was off 2-3 times, but only a week or so at a time. Even pre-Covid they had an awful time finding enough workers to work full time.....at least ones that weren't late 3 days a week, or always catching brown-bottle flu on Monday morning. After some of these yahoos got a short lay off and were getting paid $900+ unemployment, they simply refused to come back in when my SIL called them back. I haven't drawn unemployment since back in the 80's, so I don't know today's rules. I couldn't file for benefits if I was fired instead of laid off, I had to actually go in to an office every week on a certain day, plus show that I was seeking work (list of places I'd asked for a job), and I had to accept any job that came along if it paid the same as my old job. Apparently that's all changed. Some of the folks on that $900+ are young folks with kids. As an old fart that had to live close to the bone for most of my working life, I guess I can understand some guys not seeking to go back to work until the gravy dries up. It would be a simple question of economics.....why work for $750 take-home when the taxpayers will hand you $900 for sitting around? Glad I was self employed most of my adult life.

We had trouble getting people to come to work this summer because of the extra $600 in unemployment.
Most of the guys said why bother.
I just think its nuts to pay that much not to work.

been working the whole time over time most of it I don't know if I could work in an Non Essential position or industry , just the way I am wired.

wife got laid off in May even though he position was considered Essential Infrastructure also , she was going to get laid off in mid April and they extended her , but hey closed the location she worked from and she was the only employee there.

she got her hustle on and interviewed mostly over the phone for every job she could find to apply for. which was only about 4.

the last day at her old job in the last hour her new employer called and offered her a job. she was the very first new hire since covid started she had 1 week that she was home then started her new job been working overtime nearly every week since.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I agree pay them the same was the right thing to do.
But give people no incentive to back to work right out of the box nope. Not a fan

I wish I lived in a utopia where there is a job behind every bush. Around here the shutdown pretty much killed the economy. The problem with looking for a job when the gubmint shutsdowns the place( temporarily )you used to work, is you have a commitment to work for the original employer whenever they may or may not get gubmint permission to reopen. Hard to commit to a new job, if you can find one, when you may have to work at the old job at a moments notice. It is complicated.

However, if I saved one life, it was worth it.

My brother has a little store, He can't find any help, about every store in the town he lives in have help wanted signs, no one wants to work when they are drawing unemployment and now extra state money. And in Oregon renters were not required to pay rent since March and now the Govenor has extended that deadline until the end of December. Most renters will never pay 10 months back rent and it will take a couple months to evict them. My son owns several rentals and has 2 people that are not paying rent, He offered to have them work at his restarant to start paying a little of their back rent each month...No takers

The money they use to pay unemployed people is our or their tax money.
The government gives billions away to other countries, some of them hate the USA 🇺🇸.
I donít see anything wrong with helping people out that lost their jobs due to Covid , many are going to loose everything they have worked for..

I was laid off back in March due to covid in a round about way. All the shutdowns drove the price of oil into the dirt so all us oilfield hands, even though we were deemed ďessentialĒ, got the shaft. I took full advantage of the unemployment, but I never got more unemployment than I did working. I was bringing home $1300-$1500 a week working, $1000 on unemployment. I remodeled my house inside and out for the first two months, thinking Iíd get called back to work any time. When that was done I did a lot of fishing. Got bored and picked up a few old junk lawnmowers and got them running. Then my mom offered to hire me to landscape her yard. The contractor quoted her $14,000 to level the yard and put in a sprinkler system. I told her Iíd do the leveling, sprinklers, lay the sod, plant trees, put in brick flower beds, gravel the driveway, build a chain link fence with a concrete footing, and create her botanical garden like she wants for $7,000 and thatís what I spent the rest of my summer doing. Itís been great. I have 4 kids ages 1-11 and all this extra time Iíve been able to spend with them I wouldnít trade for the world. Plus mom cooks for me every day! I put in for a real job last week with the gas company. If that doesnít pan out Iíll probably spend the winter trapping. The wife and I have been smart with our money, so weíve treated this whole pandemic like a big vacation.
