Who Really Is To Blame for Unemployment
As the unemployment extension debate inches closer as the Senate returns tomorrow July 12th to discuss on the issue which happen to have been passed by the House of Representatives before they left for the July 4th recess, with the bill only extending unemployment benefits until November during election time, what do these millions of Americans expect?
We then created a poll to answer this question, “Are you anxious about the Unemployment Extension Bill?” which at the moment is really stirring reactions. (vote now!)
Who really is at fault for this unemployment crisis? Is there somebody to blame?
With most political sites and blogs discussing on the unemployment insurance extension, there has been a few similar points that has been raised as to why the unemployment rate is increasing at such a rapid pace and how this bill’s passing may change the faith of nearly 3 million jobless Americans by the end of July.
Some say that the government is to blame for their lack of action and the results of too much favoring large corporations for huge bailouts instead of providing immediate assistance to the small income tax payers who at this point needs some lift.
Others say that the businesses are to blame for lack of jobs because they where so much pampered by the government and that they would rather extend hours and provide big bonuses to executives instead of hiring new ones and are guilty of discriminating unemployed job seekers. So how are these people going to find work if they are already ruled out from very beginning?
Lastly, some government officials believe that extending unemployment benefits is a disincentive to them (the unemployed) because instead of accepting low paying jobs, they intend to just stay at home and receive unemployment benefits which was higher than what other jobs offer (in some situations) and that because they were too lazy and spoiled with some even get hooked or ended up in addiction.
Republicans have been very much against the bill for extending unemployment compensation due to budget deficit concerns although some believe that this is just a grand standing plot to show Obama that they are in control and to place the Democrats in bad light before the elections to show that the latter is not capable of running a good government.
So, these observations leave us to the question, “Who really is to blame with unemployment?”
