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 !

Parasitic businesses looking for another subsidy. Parasitic bums looking for another handout. What a country

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.

Buying less (if on sale, only one or two instead of several). Trying more store brands. They really are just as good.

Gabe, my dude, you have to stop screaming like a mad man about Biden and Democrats. You do nothing for your cause. It's so disappointing to see a grown man behave the way you do.

Beyond the massive media hype, I haven't really noticed much difference in prices.
