    Should people on unemployment be allowed to sue the government?

    It is my personal opinion that there is no need for unemployement. I've been laid off, I went and got a different job. The only reason unemployment has spiked is because a lot of CORPERATE jobs were cut. And well, let's face it they aren't willing to work as a janitor for $8.00 an hour when they can recieve 70% of their pay from unemployement. Now that their benifits are running out they are threatening a class action law suit against the government to extend their benefits.

    One interview read "I can't live on $350 a week"
    Why not? A lot of us do already!

    No.  They are geting benefits from the government, state and the federal goveernment providing the funds for the state.

    There is a difference between obligation & responsibility. It is the responsibility of thee Government to make sure all the citizens are employed, but not obligation. Government has to try its best to make it's all citizen's employed and eventually there target should be 100% employment, but probably this task takes time and to sue Government over this might not be the best option.

    People can be such lazy entitled jerks.  They really have such balls to get something for nothing and not be ashamed.  They are living on handouts on which other hard-working people are taxed on.  You just want to slap people upside the head sometimes.

    No. Some significant problems in getting a job is government regulations, taxes and uncertainty. Businesses have NO clue what the government is going to do next, hence they don't hire and they do not expand operations. Instead they open up new factories in other countries.

    When the federal government uses a SWAT team to raid Gibson guitar company because the company is using "illegal" exotic hardwoods that all companies use, and then the federal justice department tells Gibson that they can avoid all legal problems if they just have the part manufactured in another country....we have bigger problems in America. And when an American businessman can be sent to prison for 6 years for selling lobster in a plastic bag rather than a cardboard box as according to "Honduran" law (which is a law that was repealed) then there are fundamental issues within the constitutional limitations of the federal government. And when it takes 65 days to open a lemonaid stand in America, there substantial systemic problems.

    Unfortunately this is a small sampling of the substantive issues that are having a significant negative impact on job creation in America.
