NC Decreases Benefits; Unemployment Rate Falls
« on: January 12, 2014, 07:10:49 AM »
Sweet. And from the Left-leaning Politico Magazine:

Quote
As the House of Representatives ponders whether to follow the Senate’s example and extend unemployment benefits, members might want to consider the case of North Carolina, where employment has increased and unemployment has declined from 8.8 percent to 7.4 percent in the five months following dramatic cuts in the state’s unemployment benefits.
. . .
In June, North Carolina cut the duration of benefits from a maximum of 63 weeks to a maximum of 19 weeks.

Subsidize unemployment and you get more of it.

Embrace the Suck, Democrats!

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living
are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
