President Obama wants Congress to again extend unemployment benefits. That's a hard request to resist, politically. But the economic impact of extending jobless benefits is that wages will not fall quickly enough to create more jobs.

Someone who is unemployed as a mechanical engineer might nevertheless be able to find a job as a production line worker. Extending unemployment benefits induces such an individual to keep looking for another engineering job. But if that individual took a job as a production line worker because unemployment benefits ran out, productivity in the new position would almost certainly increase – even though the wage associated with it did not rise.

Because extending unemployment benefits makes many individuals less willing to take new jobs at lower pay, it adds to wage rigidity, which Keynes (correctly) argued prolongs recessions.

I read that and to me it didn't make sense since the reporter didn't do their job and do a little research. Maybe its just an editorial or an opinion column but wow what happened to journalism.

I am just getting so sick of these "christians" in name only. People are suffering and their glib, tough luck, hell no attitude is just unthinkable. To Hunterforjobs point, if fact checking were still a part of journalism, 95% of these articles would not be printed, their "facts" are not supported nor are their numbers.

God, please protect me from your followers.



It implies that if they are given benefits, out of work people might not look for as low a paying job as they would if they had no benefits. This may be somewhat true but how does that contribute to wage rigidity?

What contributes to wage rigidity is every being out of work, having no benefits, and having to take whatever minimum wage jobs there are.

Let's say you were making $50,000 per year. You get laid off and have no benefits. You take a job making $25,000 per year. Later on you get offered a better job, in your field maybe, and they give you a huge raise, you are now making $35,000 a year. How is this not wage rigidity? You are now doing the same job for $15,000 a year less.

All that needs to be examined is the plight of the 99ers still looking for any work to survive. Then add the element of millions cut short of their projected UI coverage and suddenly doing the same.

This country has real problems and this side track bull isn't even worthy of uttering a word. These stupid writers are just that.

True, but it gets the attention of the people who don't want to hear about us, believe only what they want to hear, and are afraid that they are going to be in our shoes very soon.

Under some State rules for Unemployment. It is unsuitable position for an engineer to be forced to take a production worker position or loose UI.

This is a bunch of garbage!!! I won in in Ohio over a temporary agency forcing this on me and trying to have my UI denied to me. However, once you loose UI there is more incentive to take these low paying. If there are no low paying jobs or jobs available, that is what extensions are about.

The Republicans failed by not letting the Stimulus bill to be larger in the first place.

Yes! It is like the 99ers are the new Inconvenient Truth for Amerca. Stories about the unemployed are buried under more "pressing" articles or are published in small, niche news outlets. TPTB want these stories to disappear because if America truly focused on them, a growing panic would ensue.

Just like every other cover-up, really.

At this point in time, I would be willing to take anything in the way of a job, but even "anything" doesn't exist.
