    I guess it's basically a question for Conservatives.

    Is it because unemployment and welfare make people lazy? This position implies that collecting Gubbamint checks incentivises them from taking jobs that ARE THERE.....

    Or....

    Does Obama's teh oppressive Tax Regime keep employers from hiring? This position implies that jobs AREN'T THERE. If this is the answer, than "people being lazy" just can't be it, because if JOBS AREN'T THERE, to take, because of oppressive taxes or economic anxiety, than what's a playa to do? :eek:

    Anyhoot.

    I had a girl come in to interview for a position that I had open and she told me that I had to pay her at least 12 bucks an hour because that was what she was basically getting from UI. I told her that with her experience or lask thereof I couldn't possibly start her out at 12 dollars, but I could start her with ten and if she shows she can adequately do the job then I would consider raising it to twelve. She said no thanks that she would just stick with her UI.

    Things like this are why I have mixed feelings about Unemployment, to be honest. So, you're not on a hiring freeze due to Obama's oppressive regime?

    The Capital Markets grabbed a barf bag when the American people put the Neo-Marxists in charge of Congress starting in 2007.

    Now that a Marxist has become President and nationalized 2 car companies, taken over the banks and health care, employers are not making any new commitments because the Dem Reign of Terror continues unabated.

    There is no longer any private mortgage market, the US Government has to make mortgages on luxury condominiums

    Democrats are not healthy for Capital Markets and other things vital for prosperity.

    In a way I am, I would like to expand both my businesses but I can't due to Obama's policies, namely Obamacare. I had to hire a replacenment for a girl that was killed in an auto accident.
