It should not be for to long, but yes a government should provide unemployment benefits. Some people lose their job and don't have the means to take care of their family anymore. These people should not have to suffer while they are looking for a new job to support their family's.
I think overall the Government should provide unemployment benefits if someone gets laid off, that person still has bills to pay and a family to provide for job or no job so I feel the Government should provide some assistance until that individual finds a new job, I think there needs to be limits on rules on the aid given out though.
People do not understand how vital unemployment benefits are. They think it is just another government handout allowing people to sit on their butt while they get paid. The problem is people worked for those benefits and did not ask to get laid off. Right now, there is 3 people applying for one job. It takes some time to find a new job. Unemployment benefits make sure people do not have to sleep in the streets. It does no one any good if most of our capable work force is homeless.
yes, i think that it is a real good thing for the government to provide the people some form of help for when they lose their job. This is a way that will make the people who just got fired from a place that can pay the people a little.
No, it is unfair for those who work hard at their job to get paid minimum wage, yet someone at home who is doing nothing gets paid more. Getting paid from the government for not having a job, almost makes it seem like its a perk or an incentive to be unemployed.
