Studies have been done, numbers have been crunched & on both sides people are claiming to be right. To extend unemployment to a 5th tier or to let them end? That is the question…
If you don’t know what a 5th tier would mean, it would be benefits beyond the 4th tier which equates to 99 weeks or nearly 2 years of unemployment benefits. This is in states where unemployment is above the national average for unemployment.
When you’re on unemployment, there are studies that show you will stay unemployed longer because the incentive to find a job just isn’t there.
