Are Trump and the GOP right that the $600 unemployment bonus is discouraging work?
You betcha. Why would anyone go to work or back to work if they can make more money on unemployment sitting at home on the ass?? It just does make sense especially to the hustlers.
The arrangement should be; the recipient only gets their future unemployment checks if they go back to work when their jobs become available. If they refuse, their water is cut off for any future benefits.
I know it is a very complex problem trying to keep track of abusers. The FREE-B system has become so big (especially with Mr Corona in town) that it is next to impossible to keep under control. All the government does is keep printing dead presidents. I wondr how long it will be before they run out of ink.
Supposedly, the USA was in dire straights financially before COVID-19. This and all it’s tentacles may be the straw that broke the camel’s back
One of the great examples of their poor money management is:
High on the list of abusers is Dr. Phil; the almost billionaire who slipping through the cracks and cashing in big time, taking advantage of the pandemic payout.
Jul 9, 2020 – FOX Business’ Edward Lawrence with more. Dr. Phil’s production companies got up to $7 million in government aid loans during the pandemic …
Here is a guy that makes 88 million a year. Two years ago, he was ONLY making 79 million. His net worth today is well over a a half a billion.
Nov 7, 2017 – For the second year in a row, Dr. Phil beats out his fellow TV hosts, thanks to … Dr. Phil earned $79 million last year, making him the highest-paid TV host in the world. … “If you are going to deliver a particular audience like Dr. Phil does, you are … Missing from the list are many hosts seen daily on television, …
According to newly released documents, Dr. Phil’s production companies received up to $7 million from the paycheck protection program, the massive federal plan designed to help small businesses ride out the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus.
On the same day those numbers were reported, Variety reported Phil’s youngest son, aspiring rock star Jordan — who is engaged to reality-TV star and E! host Morgan Stewart — had paid $10 million in cash for a 6,500-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills.
How many poor people that live below the poverty level could have used that money a lot more than doctor Shakedown??
I wonder how much, if any of the 7 million the kid used on his crib??
Why should guys like him qualify for any kind of government subsidies?? Friends in high places; devious financial advisors and attorneys?? The system has too many loop holes and is too huge to control.
Personally, I think the guy is a greedy hog, should be penalized and have to pay the $oldi back with triple interest for taking advantage of a situation.
The system is too big and too far out of control. It seems the country is in a perfect a storm where we are getting bombarded from all sides. Pandemic – gang violence – riots – financially -thieving foreign governments trying to overtake us. The list is endless and frankly, nothing to write home to Ma Ma about.
