"If you are offered a suitable job you must take it, you can't continue to receive unemployment"

Paraphrasing the prez
ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

End the $600 a week unemployment, and the situation resolves itself.

I think it was reduced to $300 per week but still the same thing

Also end the unlimited length of receiving state benefits

I think it's $300 extra from the fed on top of the state benefits.

It's like conservatives have been reading Marx not to learn why they should overthrow the bourgeoisie, but as a sort of manual for how best to exploit the working class."

Wages are already going up on the bottom rungs.

The 15 an hour mandate is a dumb blunt instrument remedy, much like the recent stimulus checks. Cost of living across the country obviously is all over the map.

I guess I'm strange. I've never considered it to be anybody's responsibility but my own to pay my way through life. If you can't make a living in the USA, there is something majorly wrong with you. I get up at 4:15 every morning, drive an 80 mile round trip to work ten hours, and I'm still not clearing as much money as some of those poor disadvantaged people who have been drawing unemployment the last year after getting laid off from a minimum wage job. I have no sympathy for them.

And I doubt the "disadvantaged" have any sympathy for you, me, or Mr. Doe that resides down the road.  Therein might lie the quandary; sympathy may eventually become an endangered species. 

I've never been worth a damn at judging what others may perhaps deserve or if others are disadvantaged.  It is hit or miss, flip a coin.  I have mistakenly given cash to the wealthy and walked away, with no empathy, from the truly needy.  Being a prophet was never a gift.

Ryan Cooper is a self professed socialist who will say anything to justify and rationalize his way of thinking.   

I'm glad he lives in a country that gives him a platform to do so.    The irony is rich.

True dat. I'm far from perfect, but I'm doing good to keep up with my needs, though. I have sympathy still for many folks, but not for folks who are just plain too lazy to try to keep themselves up instead of sucking off the tit of the money that gets ripped from the rest of our paychecks every week. Entitlement and victim mentalities don't cut it with me.

Unifi in Yadkkinville is now starting entry level peeps at 15 an hour.  Labor shortage is so bad there, some production machinery is idle due staffing shortages.
