Misty Todd has used unemployment benefits to pay bills since losing her convenience-store job in March last year. But the 37-year-old Las Vegas resident is unsure how she’ll afford rent, groceries and essentials for her two-month-old daughter after this weekend, when federal unemployment assistance will end for millions of Americans. Her partner, Varick Jones, 42, who worked at a restaurant, will also lose his benefits. Their job searches have been unsuccessful so far. “We were surviving off unemployment,” Todd said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do. “I don’t have a job and no way to pay my rent


I'd love to know how diligently the unemployed have looked for work.

Next? Get a job. At my friend's restaurant the chefs won't come back because they make almost as much sitting at home as working. 1, they don't have to do much in my state. Just apply for a few random jobs you're not qualified for and the checks keep rolling in.

Many are scared??? How truthfully and actually seeking work? Unemployment at this stage is absolutely shameful. Business owners, especially restaurants, are begging for workers.

Seems Misty has been busy enough since she has a 2 month old. If only she had been working, probably wouldn't have gotten knocked up.

There are plenty of jobs, many paying quite decent salaries, some as much as the hoped for $15 an hour. So maybe you can't live high on the hog but millions of people know how to budget and survive even if it means flipping burgers. No job is too lowly.

Most of the fast food restaurants in my area have gone back to drive-thru only, not because of the scamdemic, but because they don't have enough staff to open the dining rooms.

I have a friend with an established business who recently told me she's having trouble getting employees, and if she loses more and can't find replacements, she'll shrink her business to the "preferred customer" list and reduce her hours. I've noticed some retail businesses are doing the same.

FTA: Davison, who had been a turnstile attendant at the Universal Studios Florida theme park, has been using unemployment benefits to help support his parents, with whom he lives and who are unable to work due to medical issues. Though he’s been actively applying for jobs for several weeks, he hasn’t landed anything yet. I wonder what kinds of jobs a former turnstile attendant who lives with his parents might be applying for? Pushing a broom, washing dishes, cleaning house, walking dogs, cutting grass ... there must be a million things he could do. But perhaps he's applying for jobs that require a more comprehensive skill set than attending an amusement park turnstile. Was he helping support his parents on that salary? Or was he interviewed because his actual prospects are so lame? It reads almost like a joke.

99% of the businesses in my small city have 'now hiring' signs and tables set up for applicants. Restaurants of course, then grocery stores, retail stores, big boxes, etc. Plenty of jobs everywhere but we may be moving toward a crash during Dementia Man's 3 years remaining and no jobs.

Gosh, seriously?! Businesses all over my area are advertising “Help Wanted” signs - I have heard of businesses hiring immediately, right off the street they are so desperate! Not just entry level jobs either, assistant manager and manager jobs are being advertised. It is affecting all the companies - not just retail.

I work in a warehouse and just last week I had I inform a temp worker that he could not take a 20 minute break every hour. He told me that I could not expect a man to work all day and that "This was not the 60's." I just shook my head and told him that in the 60's he would have starved to death.

In my early 50s, I was riffed over 19 years ago at the outfit where I worked. Instead of going to the unemployment office, I went and got a tax ID number and a business license and started doing for myself what I had been doing for my former employers. Things got kind skinny around 2011-12 but weathered that storm and now have a consistent six figure income and a net worth north of a million bucks. In one of the poorest states in the USA. You can sit on your butt and whine to some left-wing news outfit or you can use your talents and make something happen. It's that simple. Kind of ironic that the non-work benefits run out on LABOR DAY!

Missy Todd and her boyfriend are full if BS. Over the last week, I drove from Tucson to Boise, ID and back, and everywhere I stopped were signs posted with the following statement.... "Hiring all positions, no experience needed, will train!" In the Salt Lake City area, I saw at least 20 commercial vehicles with "Help Wanted" signs on the sides and back to the truck and vans. I was in the Las Vegas area for a speaking engagement; every 7/11 up to, and including the biggies such as Walmart, all had “Help Wanted” signs. Even the glitzy casino malls such as the Forum had signs. To say that you can’t find a job is total road apples. You are just too lazy to go out and look In the Boise area, every restaurant where I dined, and every store I passed had ""Help Wanted" signs even in the restrooms. Here in the greater Tucson, AZ area, business I pass everyday all have "Help Wanted" signs. a few even have spent the money to put up bill boards. So, to Missy and her lazy boyfriend, get off your rear, walk down the street in a retail area and they will find a job, simple as that. MSgt USAF (ret)

President Biden on Thursday said the number of unvaccinated Americans still remains "unacceptably high," but insisted that his administration's vaccine requirements for the federal workforce and private employers are "working" to ensure more individuals receive shots to protect against COVID-19. During remarks from the White House Thursday, the president touted his administration's "progress" in the "fight against the virus." "We're making progress nationally. Daily cases are down 47%, hospitalizations are down 38% over the past six weeks," Biden said. "Over the past two weeks, most of the country has improved as well.

As new vehicle sales continue to decline, sale prices keep going up. A new study from Kelly Blue Book found that the average price paid for a vehicle in September it an all-time record of $45,031 as discounts dwindle and buyers in the market gravitate toward high-end models. "The record-high prices in September are mostly a result of the mix of vehicles sold," Cox Automotive analyst Kayla Reynolds said. "Midsize SUV sales jumped in September compared to August and full-size pickup share moved up as well. Sales of lower-priced compact and midsize cars, which had been commanding more share during

When the Biden administration looked for ways to pay for the president’s expansive social policy bill, it proposed raising revenue by cracking down on $7 trillion in unpaid taxes, mostly from wealthy Americans and businesses. To help find those funds, the administration wants banks to give the Internal Revenue Service new details on their customers and provide data for accounts with total annual deposits or withdrawals worth more than $600. That has sparked an uproar among banks and Republican lawmakers, who say giving the IRS such power would be an enormous breach of privacy and government overreach. Banks and their

"Research obtained by a group of scientists shows the COVID vaccine spike protein can travel from the injection site and accumulate in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries." This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about. The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous. Protein in the blood can be very dangerous. A Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week, “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario.

Ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wins

Washington–Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a settlement of his lawsuit arising from his firing during the Trump administration more than three years ago, his lawyers announced Thursday. McCabe, a frequent target of then-President Donald Trump’s ire, was fired in March 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the Justice Department’s inspector general determined he had misled internal investigators about his involvement in a news media leak. The termination came hours before he was to have retired, denying him his pension. McCabe has denied intentionally deceiving anyone, was never criminally charged and blasted his firing as politically motivated.

During the 2020 election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely Democratic voters. But this wasn’t traditional political spending. He funded a targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally nonpartisan — but demonstrably ideological — nonprofit organizations.Analysis conducted by our team demonstrates this money significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states. In places like Georgia, when Biden won by 12,000 votes, and Arizona, where he won by 10,000, the spending likely put him over the top.
