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".

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.

Mask have not proven effective at stoping covid. They cause headaches, acne, breathing issues and other issues. I am tired of small businesses being shut down while places like Walmart and Amazon have profited from the pandemic. I am tired of being lied to. No more mandates or mask or closures!

The real choice: Vaccinate or Die? If you are a Patriot/Revolutionary, you are vaccinated. If you're NOT, I believe that person's Health Insurance premiums should increase to $10,000 per month and disqualify the Individual from Subsidized Health Care. No more enabling "Stupid".

We have known since last year children are of effectively zero risk. They are also not effective at spreading the virus. Plenty of examples of schools without masks not increasing general rates of community spread. None are providing statistics/scientific studies supporting mask demands for kids.

My generation survived mumps, chicken pox, measles, scarlet fever, polio, small pox and other diseases. Some killed or maimed for life. Life has always been full of dangers and we are stronger for it. Don't suffocate our young let them be free.

It's all about control at this point. Remember the Democrat memo "Never let a good crisis go to waste". Home school and protect your kids from the brain washing in public school.

My childrens health and wellness should be based on my decisions not the governments. I'm not sending her to school if they want to mask them up. Our governor has overstepped her authority in our lives again and again.

This is a rapidly mutating virus. Why give it a chance to continue to spread and transform into even more transmissible and deadly variants. We need to stop taking half measures on an inconsistent basis and act to once and for all vanquish this pandemic.

Why? Because 1) the virus is not significantly dangerous to kids at all. 2) there is no scientific study or statistics that show unmasked kids in schools lead to higher community infection rates. 3) masks, for many, trigger migraines, staph infections, acne, etc. 4) masks obliterate socializing
