If you’ve gone to a grocery store, restaurant, or hotel lately, you might have noticed something.
There aren’t as many people working as there used to be.
That’s all thanks to Joe Biden. His “recovery” bill (that cost us $1.7 trillion in debt) extended extra unemployment perks. For many people, they are earning more staying at home than going to work.
Well, at least sixteen states don’t think that’s acceptable. So, they are throwing the breaks on Biden’s free ride to hell.
From Fox News:
At least 16 states decided over the past week to prematurely cut off the sweetened aid, which provided an extra $300 a week on top of regular state unemployment benefits. The supplemental benefit is not slated to expire until Sept. 6, 2021.
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming announced they will stop giving unemployed workers an extra $300 in benefits sometime over the summer.
Why would Joe Biden offer people money to stay home, when the country is reopening? That’s like tying a runner’s shoelaces together just before a race.
Yet here we are, in a situation where some people would rather sit at home and watch Netflix, than earn a living.
Not like that’s never been the case before. But prior to Biden’s bill, states could create incentives for Americans to get off unemployment and find a job.
But that extra $300 (in addition to regular unemployment) is in some cases more than what a job can offer a worker.
So, at least 16 states are saying enough is enough. Just added to the list is West Virginia, bringing the total to 17.
It seems these states realize that, in order to have an actual economy, you need people working!
It’s insane that after a year of shut down businesses, Biden would pay people not to work. If he was trying to make us weak and less competitive, he couldn’t have come up with a better plan.
Are his economic advisers working for China?
- 17 states have opted out of Joe Biden’s extended unemployment benefits.
- The extra free money was encouraging people not to work, even as businesses struggled.
