Please do not leave the unemployed in the cold. As somone who was layed off after 22 yrs in one company it took me nearly 3 yrs to find a job. It is exremely stressful and very impacting to the whole family, student loan companies badger us, we try and keep the roof over our head and loose health care. Do not cut off unemployment benefit, majority of unemployed do not like to be unemployed it is not luxery living, one can barely make ends meet.
weekly unemployment is peanuts when healtcare for unemployed persons family cost $900 a month, rental that costs $1000 to $1400, not to mention the gas, internet cost of looking for another job.
In addition we need job skill training centers around the country, and goverment agency office around the country that proactively assist in finding jobsw, like they do in Canada, UK and Australia.
