    From the link:
    And:
    Two points stick out for me:
    1 Not having DC involved saves mucho time, money and headaches, and
    2 Not surprisingly, a lot of people on unemployment are gonna milk this cow til it runs dry.

    Only innovation will solve todays problems, and DC just ain't capable of operating under these fluid conditions.

    thats right, insurance. paid for. if you give people a job you should also give them a pay check. unemployment is not minimum wage. if you work people and do not give them wages,a pay check it's called slavery. and it's illegal. if jobs exist why not hire peopel o work, there enough looking for jobs and can't find them, but apparently jobs exist for slaves, but not people looking for real work, with real pay checks.

    and that insurance is paid for by the employer.

    I would assume you are not an employer.

    "Georgia considers the program valuable on-the-job training..."

    "Under the program, job seekers get a chance to show employers their skills and businesses can test prospective workers before hiring them."

    "with some job applicants proposing it to prospective employers as a way to get their foot in the door."

    So if you or your husband were to become unemployed and unable to find a job you would not be willing to give a potential employer a chance to see how well you can work and yourself the chance to learn a new job skill and a good chance to get a job while collecting the same unemployment benefits?

    You would prefer to sit at home waiting for the unemployment checks to run out?

    New hire probation does the same thing.

    If you're going to be drawing unemployment either way, why not spend your time looking for a paying job.
