The longer someone takes benefits the longer they are unemployed

The longer someone is on employment benefits…

  • Skills atrophy 
  • New people enter their particular field 
  • The economy suffers in an aggregate manner as productivity stays low 
  • Labor participation rate suffers 
  • More tend to drop out of the workforce and rely on government assistance or others such as relatives which also drains the overall economy 
  • The money to pay unemployment is borrowed and accrues interest which has to be paid back by taxpayers  
  • I know it sounds harsh but time for hard decisions by Americans to take whatever job they can and multiple jobs if needed 
  • Time to go back to 26 weeks maximum of unemployment benefits and if necessary we can gradually but must scale back from 99 weeks for the nations economic health.
