Do you believe this statement about the unemployed?

The people who have been laid off and cannot find work are generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities. I say “generally” because there are exceptions.

  • Sounds like whoever made that statement needs to spend some time at a workforce development center.

  • Maybe not because there has been way more lay offs than just the slackers but I do think they were the first to go.

  • This is dicey question. Again, it all depends on the individual and what state they live in. So many have been laid off that it's been years since they had to market themselves, network or look for a new industry. I think it's a combination of both really.

  • Completely depends on the situation. I think that all of the people that are collecting unemployment and are not actively trying to find another job deserve to lose their benefits.

  • Not at all. If a company decides to cut jobs and move them overseas, then that has nothing to do with the worker.

  • Are we talking about a booming economy or a severe recession? In a booming economy with lots of job growth, that is a probable statement. In today's economy, it's not true.
