'This is what happens when you pay people
not to work': Republicans tear into Biden's
'lackluster' jobs report they say is fueled by
his $300-a-week unemployment benefits

Original Article

Top Congressional Republicans took to Twitter Friday to grumble about May's 'lackluster' job numbers, holding Democratic President Joe Biden's policies responsible. Both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Minority Whip Steve Scalise pointed a finger at the $300-a-week unemployment benefit that conservatives believe have motivated Americans to stay home. 'Washington needs to stop paying people NOT to work,' McCarthy said, while Scalise's tweet offered, 'This is what happens when you pay people not to work.'

Yes, my favorite Friday night restaurant used to close at 10. Now they have to close at 7 due to staffing shortages. They are struggling to stay open at all, and I hear the same from several other places, and am seeing new faces in many restaurants, and new cashiers learning the registers. Several times I have heard, 'Sorry, I'm slow, I'm on my second day, and still getting used to the register' At least SOME people are working.

Illinois is insanely bad right now. There are help wanted signs everywhere, and when you talk to the business owners they all tell the same tale. No one wants to work because they are being paid not to. Personally, I believe this was all by design. Universal Basic Income has always been the hobby horse of the far left and these COVID payments were a way to back door into UBI without actually calling it that. UBI has been an unqualified failure everywhere it has been tried, but so has socialism and that still doesn't keep these clowns from shoving it down our throats. "This time, it will be different."

One thing not being discussed is it's a new hire's market. A lot of people are waiting around for the best offer. A guy in TX was offered a job for a company in CA, making CA wages, while working from home, not having to move while basically doing what he's doing at the TX company. He got a major bump in pay without moving.

@5, While partially true, smaller companies are really pinched in the meantime. In IL as someone referenced above, I placed 12 calls to the somewhat qualified applicants for open positions I have available. 3 of the 12 have no voicemail set up, 5 have not returned calls. Of the 4 interviews I had set for today, only 1 showed up and has felony background. When people are paid to not work, they don't. In IL, they have to show they've attempted to contact , and I use that term extremely loosely, 6 employers in order to qualify for extended benefits. I waste my time on people who had no intent to show up for an interview in the first place. The fraud division says I need social security numbers and that they turned down a job in order to report them. The Dems have set up a failure system for us and meanwhile I'm working as many hours as I am old every week (60+) because people are dis-incentivized by government handouts cloaked behind the COVID baloney.

The Bible actually speaks about this subject in II Thessalonians 3:10: “ For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” The government now is a corrupt system that rewards those who look to it for their very existence. Democrats do not want a country filled with people who believe in the American dream and are willing to work to attain it. They want submissive Americans who see themselves beholden to the government in every aspect of their lives. They want complete control and are willing to pay people to stay home in order to achieve it. As the old song goes, you sell your soul to the company store.

Some people keep claiming that it is not an employment problem, its a wage problem. The problem with this is that is that the wages offered were just fine pre Covid. Now that they have to compete with the government free money, they aren't. The earlier $600 federal benefit plus the state benefits gave many people free income greater than they ever made in their life. Now ut is reduced to $300 federal plus state benefits which in many cases equals their working wages. The best part is the first $10,800 is tax free! Who can compete with that? Free wages, no taxes, no work. Plus not working you probably also get food stamps and government paid health insurance. Why work?

It's actually not just the high unemployment rate ... it's the other freebies too! here in NY there is literally a rent moratorium and the renter cannot be evicted! At my small 501(c)3 we had a worker ask to be laid off --- actually begged! --- so he could collect a high unemployment check and stay home and help his wife with the kids ... while she went to work off the books for cash at another place!

Let us be balanced. For all the common sense economics that Donald J implemented; for all his common sense Foreign Policy; his Achilles heel was Public Health. Donald J shut down the economy. Democrats have been trying to do that since the '70s. Cloward/Piven. ACORN. In opposition, Democrats were frustrated. They tried and tried, but American Exceptionalism thwarted them. Then, inside the tent, Donald J shut down the economy at the advice of far left Science! experts. I saw my fellow citizens strap handkerchiefs to their faces, because they could not be trusted to cover their mouth when they coughed, or sneezed. They became herd animals. I saw the herd furiously wiping down grocery carts with sanitizer, to protect themselves from their apparently diseased neighbors, as they were taught to do by the Democrat News Media. Reminder: There was an Ebola panic in 2014. The News Media was ablaze with it. Remember? The Obama Admin appointed a high placed Democrat Lawyer as 'Ebola Czar'. What? A lawyer? It was clever. That high placed Democrat Lawyer told the Democrat News Media to stop reporting about Ebola. They did. They shut up about it. And the panic was over. The Cares Act gave the unemployed $600 @ week over unemployment. There was never a reason to shut anything down. It was a flu. Granted, this engineered flu was easily transmitted. Hospitals were paid extra to jam tubes down peoples throats, torturing them until they died. They got extra money for doing that. Ventilators! We need more primitive technology, like Ventilators. One more thing. Donald J told the Pharmaceutical Industry to rush through a 'vaccine', Warp Speed. Bypass the FDA! BioNTech and Moderna who had never brought any vaccine to market looked at each other, and thought, Holy Shiite. The world is our guinea pigs! We've been experimenting with gene editing, but the FDA would never approve this. Donald J just said, Warp Speed. It was his Achilles Heel, and ours.

Millions of sub-Saharan blacks seek to immigrate to America. They apparently haven’t gotten the memo that this is a wretched land of systemic anti-black racism. When they get here, they’re strangers in a strange land. English is usually not their first language. Their skin color tends to be very black, not the lighter color of American blacks who have an average of about 25% white blood in them. Despite those handicaps, they do better than American-born blacks. Compared to American-born blacks, their income is about a third higher, their poverty rates are significantly lower, their educational achievement is higher, and their marriage rate is double.
