If the state quit giving unemployed people paid benefits then people will start looking for a job.

Help wanted signs are everywhere and businesses are closing due to not having enough staff on hand to run their business. If businesses close the county and state lose revenue!

Everywhere you look are help wanted signs Everywhere you go employees that are on the job are explaining why the service is so slow. The explanation is the same: too many places are short of staff.

The government wants people to relay on them instead of being an independent person. Also by not working it kills the local economy.

There are plenty of places that are short staffed and needing help. Any job is better than none. Go to work.

republican sure like to keep the rich richer and the POOR poorer If Missouri employers would pay a living wage this wouldn't be happening, they would have all the employees they need, in fact be able to pick from a list of people!

The average pay for an EMT Emergency Medical Technician in Missouri is $13.10 an hour. Do you think that people who work at McDonalds should get better pay than an EMT

Yes, I think that the $300 federal should be stopped on those who have been given this since the pandemic began. They have abused this privilege by not finding a new job.But if you lose your job after June 1st you should be able to get the $300 until september but still need to report work search.

1/2: There's no way to predict the future with certainty, but historically Democrats and Republicans have had difficulty working together, often prioritizing their own political agendas over the good of the country.

2/2: That being said, it's possible for them to come to a compromise on certain issues if both sides are willing to work together in good faith.

They will work together to run up the national debt on pork projects. Anyone who plays by the rules and saves money for their kid's education or (gasp) retirement, will be the losers as inflation reduces the value of your hard earned money.

Democrats would rather have political issues they can use to buy votes so they can stay in power, than to actually solve problems.

Joe's speech was magnificent. Nearly every sentence was slurred or had mispronounced words. His Unity message was clearly my way or the highway. He certainly sealed his chances to run again in 2024. He truly represents the Democratic Party of 2023.
