Will a back to work bonus get those getting used to that extra $600 a week bonus off of the government dole along with help getting the economy back?

That extra $600 is supposed to stop at end of July anyway, so what's the point?

It actually stops in most states the week before ....it is like we get paid for the week of 7/26 ...by 7/31 it actually ended when that weeks check is paid...so in effect it actually ends a week earlier

UE should always be structured in a way that pays people more going back to work then it does staying on UE at the same time

I agree. Paying unemployed people MORE than their regular income is not a good idea.

i agree and i am collecting for my one day of work i did . the thought i am making 2x what i do working is insane.

i didn't even think of filing until the hr dept told me that other part timers are filing and collecting . she said we have been contributing to your unemployment for 42 years , you should file ... so i did ..... that 600 should be prorated someway but it isn't .

i got a retro check going back to march for thousands that i was entitled to

Some of those choosing not to return to work are being replaced. It's a game of chicken with the employer that ends badly for the employee in a about a month.

I don't understand how people are supposedly not going back to work when called back because they make more on unemployment... I thought a person loses unemployment payments if they refuse employment that they're offered?
