$300, for a few weeks equals now i can retire ...Right. It’s one or the other. Brilliant as always Howie.
I also love your “$300/week” mis-representation of the situation. $300 extra ($7.50/hour) a week (on top of UI) may not mean much to you - but it put plenty of people into the “make the same or more” category - so yeah, it’s really obvious to me that people would choose not to work in that situation. Not so obvious to you.
Open jobs dropping and # employed rising since it was removed is totally a coincidence too. CNN says so.
