Absolutel because it gives a return to the state
Hell NO- we have plenty to spare
I'm not sure
I don't care
They already earned that money when they were employed. So why should they be forced to work for money that they paid into when they were working?
As for welfare, there are many people who are employed at low wage jobs who do get welfare benefits. Mostly because the low wage jobs they work at don't pay them enough money to live on. So they are on "workfare".
So how about instead of making them work even more hours we instead increase the minimum wage employers are required to pay out so they can afford to just barely survive?
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
Well people who are unemployed aren't working because simply they get more money being on employment benefits than working minimum wage, they paid into it they should get it, and for some people it's more money than what they get if they went out and got a lower wage job.
i'm simply saying that it makes no sense to have a highly skilled worker filling a lower tier job in order to collect the insurance that they've already paid for. the system can always benefit from tweaking, though. the insurance isn't intended to last forever, and you shouldn't be able to collect if you won't take a similar job in your field.
I despise anonymous posts
but those on welfare should work for the state or better yet for those of us who pay for their existence. 40% of my time working goes to the government. so when I have free time, rather than cutting the grass or polishing my cars or shoveling snow, those who are on the dole ought to be doing that for us net taxpayers
