Just before the election, the Huffington Post shared this story that indicated as many as 2 million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits if Congress doesn't pass legislation to extend them. Now that the elections are over, I'm curious... How many of you think we should renew these benefits? Or, do you think we've spent enough and need to start spending in other areas? To provide some perspective:
  1. The current population of America is 310,700,000. (According to Wikipedia.org.)
  2. There's an estimated 15,121,951 Americans who are currently unemployed.
  3. An estimated 6.2M of those unemployed have been without work for 27+ weeks.
Based on those statistics, as well as your own personal observations, what do you think? Should we continue to extend unemployment? If not, what else can we do to help these individuals find work? I invite you to cast your vote and then post your comments below. [poll id="9"] Photo credit: Shutterstock
