What about other states of USA where Americans were earning $1000/week.

Do these states also pay $450/week to unemployed? If not then California is in "printed country".

That is $1600 a month. I doubt that. The average welfare payment in Canada is just under $600. If the person has payed into unemployment insurance then I could imagine this figure being approximate...but I doubt it.

"Weekly benefit amounts range from a minimum of $40 to a maximum of $450 depending on the claimant’s quarterly earnings. To qualify for the maximum amount each week ($450) an individual must earn at least $11,674.01 in a calendar quarter during the base period (an individual’s earnings during a specific 12-month period)."

I thought unemployment was based on a sliding scale calculated according to what you earned.

Unemployment should be very minimal , and for just a few weeks. If you can live the good life on unemployment, why work?

A person who was earning $1000/week must be having lots savings and investments. Why unemployment benefits for rich workers.

California must have declared $450/week for unemployed but the government must be eating away all the money.

Why unemployment for anyone?
Taxing the productive to pay the unproductive is another progressive tragedy.
And has already been mentioned, when you pay people not to work, they generally don't.

I wouldn't describe $1k/week as being rich lol, especially in coastal California or the coastal part of the Northeast.

If my house burns down I will collect from my insurance company. If I lose my job I will collect from my insurance company.

I never realized I was rich before.
