HICKS: Unemployment compensation and incentive to work

Post by Guest on Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:43 am

If history repeats itself, we will see an acceleration of new employment in Indiana in the coming months. In the languid prose of one well known study of the issue, the "escape rate" from unemployment tends to occur near the date of "benefit exhaustion." This finding is replicated across countries and across time by economists of all stripes. Another finding is that for every five or six weeks of potential unemployment benefits available, the average length of unemployment grows by a week. The economic research backing this finding is of high quality and performed by some of the most brilliant economists of the age. In essence, the body of research tells us that longish periods of unemployment compensation tend to cause longish periods of unemployment. This should be unsurprising; when you pay people not to work, the propensity to work declines. If this trend holds -- and it almost certainly will -- we should see a big drop in long-term unemployment in Indiana in the coming months.

PLEASE,
leave the writer a comment! If his theory is correct, how does he explain the millions of 99ers? And what kind of low-paying, part-time, no benefits jobs are people being forced to take when they are fortunate enough to find one?

They see a drop in unemployment BECAUSE job hunter's benefits have expired, and they are no longer on the radar. Maybe they should look at the foreclosure and eviction rates, the number of people going to the shelters, the number of people turned away from the shelters, the number of car sleepers, couch surfers and tent people...Did I forget anyone? Oh, bridge dwellers. Oh- pets surrendered.

I commented on the article and gave some facts about unemployment and was told I misunderstood the point. LOL
Whats to misunderstand about it? He said people dont want to work while on unemployment, and implied that we could get a job if we wanted to. This guy is an IGNORAMUS! If it were that easy millions of people wouldnt of lost EVERYTHING!! as if we like this....this makes me so angry, Im so sick of the ignorance and denial.

I feel like I am beating my head against the wall. I have utilized all the programs that I am told are geared toward re-employment, dislocated workers, older workers, etc. To be honest, I haven't met anyone who has received any real help, although they have usually been pleasant. I have attended seminars, filled out enough paper work to kill a forest, refilled out a lot of it because somehow, my paperwork seems to get lost in the shuffle. I have networked, I have contributed my time to things I can afford to do, etc. I have applied to jobs and companies, only to find the same ads still posted. I periodically re-apply as a good faith effort, even though I know it's probably a waste of time, unless they have new policies and another human resources manager.
Today, I looked at the new ads for the week and found nothing new, which left me in a quandry: do I just not apply again or should I consider sending and resending my resume just for the heck of it....If they want me to go away and die, I wish they would just kill me outright, and be done with me.

Customer Service Representative

Good Morning, Heather,

My name is xxx. I work for zzzz, a full service, temporary staffing agency. I am responding to your application for the Customer Service Representative position we have posted on JobsinMinneapolis.com. After reading over your resume as well as your responses to the questionnaire, I am sorry to say that we have decided to go with another candidate for the position based on experience. The company in which we are staffing this position is looking for candidates with a minimum of 1 year call center experience and after looking over your resume I don’t see that it reflects this requirement.

If you have any questions feel free to give me a call or send me an email.

Sincerely,
xxxxxx

Hello, xxxxxx,

Actually- if you review my resume, I have almost 2 years of call center experience. The Adecco role was within the call center of a pharmaceutical benefits company. The Nexpro assignment was in a banking call center. My last position was not in a call center, but involved heavy inbound/outbound call responsibilities. I hope you keep me in mind for future employment opportunities.

Respectfully,

Heather Couture

I'm finding it hard to keep a civil tone, at this point. I don't even know what to say. Part of me is sad to see the country being destroyed by sheer ignorance, and part of me feels like I'd be better off trying to build a third world country into an economically competitive entity, except I can't afford to get there.

The U.S. will soon be a third world country with the very poor ruled by the super-rich class since much of the middle class is now being eliminated. You don't have to go anywhere to be in a third world country ruled by a petty dictator and an ineffectual Congress. This may make you crap in your pants, but be prepared to remove your adult undergarments for inspection. Your life depends on it.

Yes, but the difference is that maybe, in the pursuit of economic competitiveness, they'll give me a chance!
