Many Unemployed Workers in California to Experience an Interruption in Jobless Benefits

What are your thoughts? Should they continue to extend benefits or not.

SACRAMENTO – A few hundred thousand unemployed workers currently relying on extension benefits to help sustain them while looking for new work in this weakened economy may now experience an interruption in their Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. Some may find their benefits stopped all together. These possibilities are due to the fact that Congress has yet to take action to extend expired provisions of the federal extension program and the associated filing deadlines for such benefits.

  • How long does the public expect for the government to keep sustaining the people. I understand that work is hard to find but, our government is bankrupt, we can not afford it. Money doesn't grow on trees and it isn't the governments or the taxpayers responsibility to keep paying these people on Chinese IOUs.

  • No more extensions. It's gone on too long already. Good paying jobs are hard to find, yes. Regular, average jobs that aren't glamorous are not hard to find. Too many people expect something for nothing or are "holding out for management" instead of just getting on with it.
