Or is it not enough if you can't or maybe won't find a job. I find it hard to believe that people with unemployment checks at 99 weeks can't find some sort of job. Maybe not the one they were working with before but something. At this point I believe at 99 weeks or more you are never getting your old job back. Employers look at you as if you are either no longer qualified or just plain lazy. Sorry but at least while working for say walmart or some other low paying job you got some sort of dignity to go along with the application. I mean are we really doing them a favor by keeping them on unemployment. Its worse then welfare. at least with a low paying job you and your family can qualify for food stamps and medicare and other forms of govt help. The kind of help that isn't that undignified. I got unemployment for a while. I couldn't be on it for that long because frankly it was alot less dignified then medicare. are these people just to proud to do anything?
