Yes, it will put 1000's back into the workforce
No, us Muricans don't condone socialism
Yes. It's absolutely important that those still unable to find work are given emergency aid. The last thing we need is for people to be penniless so that it exacerbates an already difficult situation!
We got to think about this logically. The argument that this decentivizes people from working is ridiculous. You can't live on 150$ a week, and especially not when unemployed, but UI will actually boost the economy when people get jobs. Think about it. If someone is on unemployment insurance for 2 years, and receive 5000$, then when they get a job they will pay about 7000$ a year. This ultimately helps the economy. More importantly, the mandatory government programs provided such as referrals, aid councils, and employees dedicated towards getting you a job ensures that the government is working to help you work for yourself. And the Premium adjustments revised under the bill check the power of the Insurance companies. http://www.edd.ca.gov/Payroll_Taxes/Rates_and_Withholding.htm
Why does the government have to try to "fix" the country? It's already done enough harm already.
