I wonder why…. keep giving people who work no-skill jobs who make $15 an hour tax free cash essentially and you have no reason to go back to work.

biden administration will release over 25,000 illegal aliens into
Texas and California. Low education and few job skills, just what CA needs.

Think of it as your reward for electing DEMs.

I’ve applied for CA unemployment multiple times since last June and have yet to see a penny in UE benefits. Would you like to pay my bills? There are a lot of them.

Bill February 22, 2021 at 11:35 AM

@will it’s my fault your industry where you work is deemed by CA governor non essential? Choose a new career.

get a job

What jobs? For the last few years it’s been explained their are more potential employees than there are jobs. There is not enough that needs to be done. And some jobs that no human should risk doing have been replaced by automation or bots. We are in for a new leisure society. That means fewer work hours a week and more leisure time.

Sounds idealistic and yes we’re really not set up for it. Looks more like they wanted to turn everyone into paupers and subservient to the government. Not a good idea.

I’ve also been a hiring manager and know well that there are certain fields that some people excel in and some that some people don’t. People should be working at what they are interested in not just what makes a lot of money. Being in tech I think we have graduated a lot of college tech students who have no real knack for the field and only selected that field because of the pay. They also have leaned mostly from professors who only know theory and never worked in the field.

Gavin Newsom is Idaho’s Realtor of the Year.

Joe Bidens answer to unemployment. Legislation put forward by President Biden and congressional Democrats would fundamentally erase the very essence of America’s nationhood. For the first time, in human history, this legislation proposes sending applications to previously deported illegal immigrants and giving them the chance to reenter the country on a rapid path to citizenship.

An we still have no idea how many small businesses will never reopen.
Each job lost effects 3 to 5 other people who supplied products or services to that closed business.

Seeing more buildings cleared out to the walls hair salons, smaller independent gyms, you can probably add to the list.
An damage is not limited to CA.

Trump undid a lot of Obama’s damage and built a robust economy, only to have it destroyed yet again by democrats. It’s similar to how Rudy Giuliani made NYC livable again only to be destroyed by the democrats, yet again. It’s a never-ending cycle of liberals destroying everything they touch.


JimmyJam February 22, 2021 at 11:17 AM

you do realize that if Trump had any other plan other than ignore this “hoax” a year ago the economy would have righted itself over the summer?

Biden’s been in charge for a month, the economy has been in the crapper since April.

The PPPs went to businesses that could have survived not your mom and pop places. That stimulus check in May barely covered rent/mortgage for most people.

Rudy made NYC a tourist destination which is continues to be but he also was hated prior to 9/11.

JimmyJam – In February 2020, Pelosi was telling people to come to San Francisco’s Chinatown. There was nothing to fear. In March 2020, AOC said avoiding Chinese restaurants in NYC was ‘straight-up racism’ . The democrats cried racism yet again when Trump instituted his travel ban.

Do you see the pattern? For democrats, identity politics is far more important than public health.

Rollo Tomasi February 22, 2021 at 12:53 PM


You just called (I assume the virus) a hoax. Good thing Trump never did that. Would you like me to post his words verbatim?

sideline February 22, 2021 at 10:59 AM

With all the “free” and what seems to be unlimited unemployment money there is no incentive to go back to work.


sam malone February 22, 2021 at 11:20 AM

Why would any of the entitlement crowd want to go back to work when they can use EDD as their personal ATM machine for untold millions????

The continual bleed that Newsolini seems to condone and want to continue has to be stopped and now.


Stealthy Mama February 22, 2021 at 11:34 AM

It is scary thinking that our economy will go from Trump’s make America great again to Biden’s let’s turn America into crap again.


Schmee February 22, 2021 at 11:59 AM

“Work wear” in park n shop is hiring all positions from manager on down I saw a sign. Hell I was in Round Table last night and the owner offered me a delivery job. I read an article that said people aren’t taking available jobs right now that face the public due to risk. They are holding out for work from home jobs per the article.

I’ve been working from home for a year now for my main job. Thankfully my company already had us working from home two days a week so the transition was easy.


sideline February 22, 2021 at 2:05 PM

I beg to differ.
they are not looking for a job from home….
…they are enjoying unemployment “pay checks”

Tomato Girl February 22, 2021 at 12:31 PM

@Anonymous BINGO! Also, just open the frickin state already even NY has indoor dinning and you can go to the movies or the library. Recall Newscum! His days of dreaming of the presidency are over


Chris February 22, 2021 at 1:33 PM

I can’t speak for the rest of the people on this platform, but I love staying at home and receiving unemployment. You just have to know how to work the system. While collecting unemployment, you work under the table and can earn more than double your salary. Whose says the American dream is dead? We’re just getting started.

IOWs you’re committing perjury by lying on your UI application.
