Re: Does the government's extension of unemployment benefits keep the jobless from seeking employment?

Nobody in their right mind would choose unemployment over a decent job. First, unemployment runs out & fast. Second, good reason to work is benefits that include 401k, insurance, and the chance to save for rainy days. Unemployment doesn't offer any of this. Another reason is the hinderance that unemployment brings for most. Your income has to be a certain amount before you get any extra's, etc. Foodstamps, medicaid, and other benefits are not given when receiving unemployment. Period.....
