People who are on benifits should never "relax".
Daily survival is at stake here.
If anything, people need to go back to school and learn a trade, not a diploma, open a small business, maybe take that lower paying job.
You only relax when you die. Until then, keep up the good fight.
I completely agree with you on that, however, when you are on unemployment benefits, you lose them if you go back to school. Not too many people know
that. You are supposed to be actively seeking a job, and you can't if you are enrolled in school.
You can go back to school when you are working, but that has to be on your own dime.
The "relax" comment was meant to let people know that their benefits are not going to be automatically cut off as of December 29th. As soon as they
can figure out how to Rob Peter, to pay Paul, the funds will be available.
Without the OP understanding how this works, it's sort of like Chicken Little.

Ok Sissel, I have NEVER seen or heard what I seen today. It is posted at the local unemployment office, the Exact wording of it is"URGENT NOTICE....as
of December 29, 2012, there is no longer any unemployment benefits." Call me stupid, but, that posting being on a state ran office is enough reason
for concern, as far as your Chicken Little comment, you remember that comment, when someone who is starving wants what you have and will do anything
to get it. Maybe you haven't noticed, but the US of A is going to hell in a hand basket, and quick. If you haven't noticed, get your head out of the
And since I don't understand how the system works, Please, enlighten me. I have been on unemployment before, I have somewhat of an understanding how
it works. So with that being said, I look forward to my Enlightenment...pffftt Better yet, I will personally go there tomorrow as I know the woman
who is the secretary. And I will let you know what I have learned.
Your Chicken Little comment Irked me. I understand you are entitled to your opinion. BUT, i'd like to know what you do for a living. I have what some
people would call a very UNIQUE perspective on things going on in the everyday world. would you like to be enlightened, Buy a 800mhz scanner and just
listen to what goes on.
Just today, a 50-60 year old man robbed an Aldis for crying out loud. I actually pitty people like you, cuz your heads in the clouds, and you are
oblivious to what is actually going on, Man, your gonna have a really rude awakening, and that is putting it nicely.
