Unemployment is granted to people for an extended amount of time. The application to renew your unemployment is often as simple as "are you looking for a job? check yes or no." I believe unemployment and Welfare was developed to benefit those people who have gotten laid off work in a poor economy and require some help to continue supporting themself and their family while looking for work. However, many people are abusing unemployment, welfare and foodstamps. And the longer people are out of work and reliant on welfare support, the harder it is to get back into the workforce. I see perfectly capable people abusing unemployment. People always have the oppurtunity to find other jobs to make ends meet until they find their ideal job. Accepting unemployment for extended amounts of time just to delay a return to working is unfair to the hard working people who pay into that government aid.
