North Carolina cuts unemployment benefits, employment increases
Shocking, right? Although liberals screech about how cutting unemployment benefits will lead to mass homelessness and starvation, that’s not the case.
According to Charlotte Hays at Townhall:
An experiment in North Carolina indicates that–as is all too often the case–Democrats actually may be hurting the very people they claim to be helping in their quest, temporarily halted, to extend unemployment benefits.
North Carolina, it seems, pressed for money and under the cruel sway of a Republican governor, resorted to drastic measures: slashing unemployment benefits and, as if that wasn’t draconian enough, cutting the number of weeks the unemployed could receive even these meager benefits.
Liberals claim that benefits don’t discourage people from finding a job; there simply aren’t enough jobs to go around, and that’s why unemployment remains high. But the incentive to find a job is no doubt a factor.
