I know I live in the great state of Tx where times aren't as hard as in the rest of the world. But anyway, I know someone who just couldn't seem to find the right job. He's had 4 different jobs and turned down several others in the last 8 months. Finally, I think he found one to his liking this time.
The states just can't afford to keep paying people for doing nothing. Taxes are going to go up on employers because of it. Is that good for the economy?
