      You self-rightious fuckstick. Unemployment is earned through past employment, and no more a drain on society than if of the recipient was actually working. Taxes are paid against it, just like regular income. It is not Welfare, which needs to be abolished. Next time get your facts straight before voicing your vitriolic rantings.

        Actual Welfare (TANF) - is less than 1% of the US budget. It gets attention because conservatives oppose it on moral grounds - the argument that it is a drain on society is ridiculous, especially when you consider the alternative - desperate starving people much more likely to commit crimes.

          So you're saying that my step-sister who doesn't work because then she would forfeit her welfare, who has 2 kids, and just moved out her 2nd baby daddy to move in the, probably soon to be, 3rd baby daddy deserves welfare? Sure, there's desperate people who actually need welfare but I feel most people are like my step-sister.

        In Cali unemployment is not *earned* by employees. It is ONLY paid for by employers and never employees so here yes you are a fucking drain on society.

      Agreed, but then they turn around and call us unconstitutional. Nobody is guaranteed any free money in our national constitution, our states need to say enough is enough. Freeloaders. I understand that there are emergencies and some people are disabled, but the rest are freeloaders. Welfare should require each person to submit proof of three job applications a week.

    That's why drug tests should be mandatory for the people who draw "entitlements" of any sort from the government.

    Ok, #1) your tax dollars are not going towards anyone's unemployment money other than your own if you so happen to apply and receive the benefits from it. #2) you can only receive the benees if you were laid off from your old job, you can't receive them if you quit or were fired. #3) some "seasonal" employees are encouraged by their employers to apply for unemployment with the intent of returning the following season. Unemployemt is paid into by the employee and the employer h

    to all of the dipshits who say you earned it, no you did not, you do not earn or deserve 2 or more years of it. you pay in like 5 to 25 a month max. So do the math as to how many months you need to pay in so as to collect say 500 a month for two years, you are a fucking drain on society and people like me hate to pay for LOSERS who abuse the system, use it for 6 months fine, but not two years, we are breeding an entitlement society

    No. Most of you are morons. Yes unemployment goes by what you put in it. You dont get hella money. I was trying to get unemploymeny til i go my new job i was only gonna get like $130 every two weeks. You might as well jus get a fuckin job. BUT it is NOT welfare. It was money i earned and my old employers reserve account would pay into it as well. NOT a dime from ANY other taxpayer. AT ALL.

    Most states do require you to turn in proof every week that you're looking for a job. unemployment is not welfare, and they still withhold taxes from it.
