They've had an incentive to stay home. Just take the extra unemployment money away and then they have incentive to go back to work.

Government used tax payer money to encourage people to not work and now they want to use taxpayer money to bribe them to go to work? STUPID! Businesses should not have been forced to close in the first place.

People are to used to free money although it costs the working, tax paying citizens. Stop the incentives and they should and will go to work.

Just reduce the unemployment cash benefits and people will go back to work. It is suppose to be a "hand up" and not a "hand out".

Seems to me the businesses that need employees should do that.

Cut off unemployment and quit allowing people to rely on the government.

Implement livable wages with decent benefits and you'll be flooded with folks wanting to work for you. With the pandemic, they've learned that not working for sub-livable wages leaves them better off since they don't have to struggle to pay for transportation and child care.

I think pulling unemployment for people that have been on it for ages would be good enough incentive. There are 1000's of jobs out there right now. They would not have a problem finding one.

No incentives or government. Everybody should just do whatever they want to do without government managing any aspect of their lives. Drive as fast as you want on any side of the road you chose. Do it for freedom !

The businesses would not benefit from this. You would show proof to the state before you got the money as it would come from the state.

Typical tax and spend liberal raising Oregon's budget by Billions and spending critical reserve funds. Oregonians knew this would happen when uber liberal got elected by Portland.

Democrats just want to spend, spend, spend. They love throwing money away for no good reasons. Just more waste put on the tax payers backs.

I am an instructor of information technology and cybersecurity. I feel there is value in this tool when used ethically and by experts who can use what is generated with an understanding of the risks. I better know if the code it generates is correct and secure.

AI is dangerous, very vulnerable to Misinformation and just spitting it back out. AI is NOT creative, real writers are creative. AI just re-arranges the factoids available to it. Teachers are alarmed that papers submitted by students might not be their work, just ChatGTP garbage.
