ABOUT FREAKING TIME! Is my honest opinion on this one.

WTF?...this is how it should have ALWAYS been!


Previously some states, like Ohio for instance, did spot-checks, but are now requiring regular submission of job search efforts. Other states, such as New Hampshire, collected the information electronically but must now tell claimants to bring paper records to their assessment meeting.




And they are suprised at the turn-out rate for these face-to-face meetings!?!?! Those not showing up are those playing the system...CUT THEM OFF!

I agree with the new rules as well.

These programs should also require some mandatory job training and mandatory volunteering.

There are three sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth.

God is just a personification of reality, of pure objectivity.

I would also say there should be a mandatory drug test.  Simply because most jobs require that in the employment process.  There are 2 types of folks who claim unemployment benefits on one hand we have people that are actually looking to rejoin the workforce and continue to be productive members of society, second we have folks who will milk the system and collect every penny they can to simply sit around the house watching TV.  I personally was on unemployment assistance for a few months and thank god it was their to feed my kids.  I hated every day that i could not get up and go to work and had to suck up my pride and take a job that i hated until i found better work that i could be proud of.  in my state they call randomly the people you apply for and will cut you off if they catch you trying to cheat the system.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (also known as the Mormons) actually has it that if a person seeks welfare assistance from the church then their minister has the right to require volunteer work from the person in exchange; usually this is stuff like "cleaning the building in lieu of a janitor" or "stocking shelves at the food storage center".


Not only is the person on their feet and working, these are usually jobs that a person can put on a resume, making it that much easier for them to get paying work later.
