The incentive in waiting tables is to get your foot into the door, establish a work record, and move on to something better, if that is your goal. Beats the hell out of sitting at home getting an unemployment check for two years.
You know there is such hatred and ignorance about the T.E.A. Party. Please tell me how many have been arrested for disorderly disruptive actions? For someone your age to attack Reaganomics tells me a lot about you. Never in the history of this country did so many raise themselves up and prosper as they did under Reagan. Why don't you ask yourself why liberals are so anti Reagan? Reagan made people proud of themselves and their efforts thus they didn't need liberalism. No wonder liberals hate Reagan.
Reagen was controlled by corporations, that is why. He also was the one who lowered the taxes on the rich.Never in the history of this country did so many raise themselves up and prosper as they did under Reagan.

Most people who remain unemployed, are the least employable, for a variety of reasons.
Second, unemployment payments have been cited in a number of potential job offers we have made, as being preferred at that time to taking a job they arent' jazz'd about.
Some people are intentionally unemployed. Who really wants to work anyway? Sure a percentage of people love their job, but once you get over the stigma of not working...the lack of "going to work every day" in my experience, is a sweet delight.
And can you blame them? Pay me not to work rather than take a hard job....that's not an easy choice for everyone.

By the way ... 400 thousand jobs added last month ...
... that's your idea of heading towards a double dip? Good news for America remains bad news for you.
But seeing as how I want to keep this conversation going:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_Reform_Act_of_1986The top tax rate was lowered from 50% to 28% while the bottom rate was raised from 11% to 15%. Many lower level tax brackets were consolidated, and the upper income level of the bottom rate (married filing jointly) was increased from $5,720/year to $29,750/year. This package ultimately consolidated tax brackets from fifteen levels of income to four levels of income. This would be the only time in the history of the U.S. income tax (which dates back to the passage of the Revenue Act of 1862) that the top rate was reduced and the bottom rate increased concomitantly. In addition, capital gains faced the same tax rate as ordinary income.
That paragraph disgust me.
