“It’s easier and more lucrative for some adults to collect unemployment benefits than it is to work,” Steve notes. In short, the unemployment benefits provided with a stroke of President Obama’s pen have, at least in Steve and Gwynn’s case severely decreased their labor pool. " What a bunch of absolute hooey! More lucrative? Clearly the author doesn't realize that unemployment provides only a fraction of the recepients last quarter earnings. The less a person made in that quarter, the less unemployment benefits. To blame the president for providing unemployment benefits to assist people who have lost their jobs due to a poor economy and then to imply these people PREFER unemployment is the biggest bunch of s#$t I have ever heard.
