    Recruiters: Some Unemployed Turn Down Jobs - Louisville News Story - WLKY Louisville

    So, this was a September 2010 article. Recruiters were complaining that many applicants turned down a job because they preferred to simply stay on unemployment. And guess what? We extended unemployment later in 2010.

    But what if we didn't? If we didn't extend unemployment, those people would then take the jobs they turned down. But we did extend it, and I bet those people are still on unemployment.

    How can liberals not see this? Jobs are there. But if we keep giving handouts, people wont work. They'll take free money as long as they are offered it. THAT article in Sept 2010 says that. I bet if we rewrote history, and did not extend unemployment in 2010, then many of those people would've taken a job and be working TODAY rather than still on unemployment....bitching about not having a job.

    I have brought this up a number of times.One of the hosts on WABC radio in NY was curious as to why so many people were still out of work after 99 weeks of collecting and they were mad that it might finally be cut off.The callers all were of the same opinion.As long as the checks were coming in they saw no reason to even begin to look for work.

    Shit if you could get those bastards at the staffing services to actually do their fucking jobs it would be a miracle. They don't even want to talk to you unless you come in and tell them you will only take temporary positions, you will work jobs that require experience (i.e. not entry level) and you will take minimum wage.

    Staffing Agencies suck the big one.

    If you are actually looking for a frigging job they don't want anything to do with you.

    PS Sorry about the language. I've been trying to work through staffing agencies and the minute you tell them you are looking for a permanent position, they are kicking your butt out the door.

    Basic rule of nature; subsidize what you want more of.

    Americans are lazy bastards, for the most part, and not like the workers in the EU.
