AbiHMet a dude today that doesn’t work and just skis full time on unemployment. (And he’s not very good)
f’ing pisses me off. Out here working my butt off, and my taxes are going to abled bodied morons who have no intention on getting a job because they’re making more off of unemployment than they would be working.
The leaches of society eh
So I felt the same way. Until I realized I can make more money from unemployment + $400/week than I can make at the old $15/hr seasonal landscaping job I had working 40 hours. Why the fuck would I work? My current winter job pays well enough I can make the $6-800/week from unemployment last all summer until the next winter.
don’t hate the player; hate the system. There are high schoolers who got laid off last spring due to Covid and were able to collect unemployment and get $600/week extra (almost $300 total more than I made working 40 hours at $15/hr after taxes).
if Covid is good for nothing else, it’s sure shown me that this country could easily solve our homeless, food, and healthcare problems in a second if they decided to spend a whole stimulus bill on the population, but we care more about foreign aid/military vehicles than our own people.
