Unemployment insurance does not stop people from getting jobs

See also

They worked full time for years, lost their job through no fault of their own, and now they're collecting "unemployment" which is about $1,600 a month. To put that amount of money into perspective, it costs a minimum of at least $900 a month to rent a bedroom in someone else's apartment and pay half of the utilities. If one's car payment and insurance costs $500 then he or she would have $200 left for food and gas for the entire month.

Those on unemployment are not on vacation; they're suffering, and they're on a downward spiral because if their car breaks down or gets towed away or their cell phone dies then they'll be stranded. To compound the situation, their spouses and relatives harass them to the point that they wish that they were dead.
