The problem with the unemployment system is WHO gets taxed to pay

been allowed to outsource jobs from this country funded the system, we
wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Admit it you scammers. You could work but you get free money. It is my money you are spending on chips and TV watching. I will never take unemployment. It is wrong. To let the government keep part of your money and give it back during hard times is just silly. You keep the money and get your hands off of mine!

Look I know someone right now who says they will be getting unemployment for 2 years, & has a spouse that makes 34 dollars a hour.
That is wrong. Get a job. 6 to 8 months is more than enough time for you to find a job...any job. Economy is tight right now so it doesn't have to be some high ranking position...
