Myth #1: I'm going to get something out of unemployment insurance because I paid into it.Truth: Unemployment insurance is paid for primarily through employers' contributions. You, as an employee, do not pay into any unemployment compensation fund directly.
Myth #2: Unemployment insurance will stay in place until I get a job.Truth: Unemployment insurance is just that -- insurance. It works just like life insurance, auto insurance, and medical insurance, in that there is a maximum payout and you must meet certain conditions to file a claim. In other words, once you have used up your unemployment benefit, you will not receive more money unless you return to work for a period of time and then are laid off again. This is similar to auto insurance -- when you are in an accident, your insurance company pays for the eligible amount (the cost of the damage to your car or your medical bills) and nothing more. If your accident costs more than your insured amount, you pay the remainder.

You know here's a novel idea.
Get a job.
Look I don't care who you are, what your qualifications or non qualifications are, eduction etc..
You CAN get a job almost anywhere, even if it's minimum wage, who cares? At least your bringing home something.
I think the unemployment rate also has to do with a person's pride, some people just refuse to get a job that's not in their field or that they feel like they are too good to work at McDonalds or Starbucks.
The truth is, these would only be temporary anyway.
People need to leave their pride behind and look for ANY job that provides ANY sort of income.
This is not however to say that there are some who jsut can't find a job, because fundementally there are those for which there just are NO jobs.
