For any motherfuckers out there who think it’s just a bunch of people looking for a handout: you are completely and utterly devoid of compassion for your fellow man. No one’s getting rich off unemployment. They’re just getting by. I’m fortunate to be back to gainful employment, but others aren’t. The job market’s kinda fucked. There’s a pandemic going around. We should be doing everything we can to help people stay healthy and financially stable. These benefits are necessary for both right now! For anyone still decrying “that’s socialism!” Just shut up. The CEO of my last job got a Christmas bonus 22x his $1 million salaries.
Mine was cut in half for no explained reason. His bonus alone could have floated hundreds of people making what I made when I, and hundreds of others, got laid off. Fuck the rich. Help those suffering. What has happened over the last 40 years is our economy has changed to a point where 30 percent of the population have 0 affect on the economic indicators, the money they pay in taxes and the products they purchase means so little that when they are unemployed and purchasing nothing the stock market and even GDP continue to climb without them.
