I saw on the History Channel that during the Great Deprecation (1930s) President Roosevelt had an unemployment benefit plan which is to give the unemployed a paycheck but they had to Work! For example, building a dams, roads, etc. I agree with you that today's unemployment benefit plan is just to give people money and they don't have to work for it. I believe that we need to go back to President Roosevelt’s unemployment benefit plan which is to give the unemployed a paycheck, but they must work for it!

Like they do for welfare and foodstamps, maybe they should have people work volunteer 40 hours weekly for that $150 a week unemployment check and job search, maybe it will help the people find a job faster. I go on unemployment for 12 weeks every summer from my job, I took advantage of it going to school full time. So i can finish and avoid unemployment in the future because it is not easy, especially being a single mom.

I dont think that it is the number of weeks that should be extended. They should fix the way they track the progress of the unemployed. Right now, all you have to do is call in and say that you applied at a number of places. Either over the internet or on the phone and then they send you a check. Even if you applied for a job that you are not trained for. Example: appling for a Management position, when you are a short order cook. You know that there is no chance of getting this job but it counts as one application you enter.

It's too easy!!!
