Bernthal – The Way It Oughta Be: Unemployment Benefits
(KPLR) – Should some unemployed workers be disqualified from unemployment benefits.
It`s one of those big ideas that divides a lot of people. Just how generous should we be with those who are out of work?
Well maybe there`s a way to find some united ground.
I know people who needed unemployment benefits to survive and have used them to help them find work.
Some people feel we`re too generous. Well maybe it`s not that. Maybe we just need to be more selective.
For example some Missouri lawmakers want to change the law to make it a little different to qualify for unemployment.
For example taxpayers paid unemployment to one worker who was fired for urinating in another worker`s coffee.
I don`t know about you, but I’m not sure they deserve unemployment.
But there are plenty of people who do.
Maybe democrats and republicans should form a bi-partisan committee to sort things out so some the rhetoric can be toned down.
I’m JB and that’s The Way It Oughta Be.
