Source: ThinkProgress Economy

A new study from Congress' Joint Economic Committee (JEC) debunks the prevailing conservative notion that Unemployment Insurance (UI) dissuades people from looking for a job. "On the contrary," the report finds, "beneficiaries of federal UI benefits have spent more time searching for work than those who were ineligible for UI benefits." "In fact, since Congress enacted federal unemployment benefits, time spent looking for a job has tripled among the long‐term unemployed who are out of work as a result of job loss," the report adds.


  1. no they dont! all they do is sit on their ass's and send some online applications so they can tell the ui people they are trying. To really get a job get off your ass and stop in places show some damn initiative introduce yourself shake a fucking hand present yourself as a competent individual not the worthless wast of space you are

  2. @Anonymous Language like that will quickly wear your welcome out, Anon. Let's try to keep the ad hominems down to a minimum, okay? Oh, and a little more spell-checking and punctuation would make your argument far more compelling. Thanks.
