Study: Uncommon for people to take advantage of unemployment

Post by Guest on Sun May 29, 2011 12:13 pm

It's fair to say that whenever a program such as unemployment insurance is in place, some people are going to take advantage of it. But while how many people actually do this is difficult to pin down, most officials and out-of-work people I talk to on a regular basis say it's not a common practice.

Let's start with human resource directors. I talk to a lot of them, and dozens of times have posed this question: Do people turn down jobs because the positions don't pay as much as the unemployment check the job candidates are getting?

The most common answer when I've asked in recent months is, no. It happens so rarely that most struggle to think of a time when it actually did occur.

I did turn down a job because unemployment was paying more. However, it was a job I didn't want and it was right after I lost my job and I believed I would have found a job sooner.

I saw a study once that was done by a conservative group that said as many as 10%-15% of all people on unemployment have not taken a job because they still have benefits. Even if this number is true why would you end a program that 85-90% of people need and do not abuse?

And we don't know what jobs the 15% turned down either. They may have been jobs like McDonalds cashier or Wal-Mart associate. The job I turned down was at a call center making about $10hour.
