How many weeks do people need to be on unemployment? Let's stop calling it unemployment after a year. Then it's income being paid for doing nothing. I'm sorry for sounding so harsh but my God there are jobs available but you might have to actually MOVE and in some cases for the short term take a lesser job than what you previously had.
End of rant.

I'm scratching my head here..
I see both sides of the spectrum here.
On one side people are having a hard time getting a job. Yet taking over a year to find a job that PAYS more then unemployment, is hard for me to swallow.
Even being a unskilled laborer, you can find a job digging a ditch, mowing grass or flipping burgers.
Not sure if i really understand the timeline, BUT I understand both sides, not all people can sell themselves in a interview to get a job i suppose. Yet I would expect as long as people are on unemployment, they are reporting to some government office showing PROOF, they trying to find a job.. Kinda hard to beleive people cannot find a job that pays more then unemployment benefits for over a year..

I "get it" that people are having trouble finding the job of their dreams or even a job that pays relatively well. Sorry about your damn luck, but that's what happens in a recession.
