For some, jobless benefits trump a job

Full article here:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39693099...n_the_economy/


from the article:
Quote:
About 8 million people are now collecting some form of unemployment aid, but how much they take home varies widely depending on what state they live in and how much they made previously. In Massachusetts, for example, the maximum benefit is $943 per week, including an allowance for dependents, while in Mississippi it is just $235 a week.

It's just sad a system put in place to give people like yourself a temporary hand-up in times of no job is getting sucked dry by worthless fucks that are not even looking for a job and just gaming the system.

It makes me sick every single unemployment payday. That's why my dentist appt just so happens to be scheduled today...

Maybe i didnt know how to work the system, but it only lasted me about 4 months and barely paid for my rent and food. I think monthly was just under a $1000 a month.

Huge difference between being employed.
