No, I dont think they should have to pay it back. It is difficult enough being unemployed, without the added stress of getting into more and more debt, and not knowing when you will be in a position to start paying it back.
Where is the fairness in that?
I'd say yes, if not the whole thing, at least a portion of it. It should be paid back without interest unless after a certain amount of time it hasn't been paid back, then interest can accumulate.
Clicking the thanks button was not enough, this time. I've worked most of my entire adult life as well, but unemployment was only based on the earnings of my last job, which I only held for five months. I've been without unemployment (or a job outside the home) since August of last year.
No, unemployment benefits should not be paid back. People were told they would be receiving these benefits, and now they are. They can't go back onto them and force them to pay back something that was not agreed on.
