In New York State, where unemployment payments are on the higher end, the additional $600 made it so that people who filed and received unemployment during the pandemic were making more money then those working minimum wage jobs. So, for a while there, a lot of people chose not to go back to work because they'd make less money at work. Keep in mind the cost of living in a lot of New York State --- state, not city -- is pretty low anyways. As a country, we definitely need to rework the unemployment system.

I'm a seasonal work and get laid off in the winter, and because of how disorganized CT's unemployment was, I couldn't get ahold of a representative...until AFTER I went back to work. It meant that I only got a fraction (2 weeks) of the two months I was laid off, so now I have to dip into my savings because unemployment was supposed to cover those two months, but now I'm almost two months short in my checking for my rent and other bills. We'll see if, even now that I've returned to work, if I can even afford to spare enough to eat healthily.

"It's nobody's fault." But it is - the government's. It's the government's fault. They created the unemployment with their draconian policies and continue to subsidize it. The businesses who were fortunate to survive the last year are now having a hard time hiring anyone back because people can take more for unemployment. The economic benefit of unemployment insurance he talks about goes directly to the large corporations where the vast majority of that money gets spent. The very corporations that politicians pretend to be against. Meanwhile small and medium size businesses disappear because they can't even hire staff to scale up their operations again. This causes even more people to go on unemployment and gives even more market share to large corporations. It's a vicious cycle that only creates more economic misery in the long run. It's a fine policy to get some people by in a rare tough time, but not this many people and not for this long. Unfortunately, you can't solve problems created by government with more government. Then people wonder how the rich got richer during a pandemic. Tax the rich and give us more government benefits they scream. Will we ever learn?

So this is what hunger truly means. Thanks for that mom to finally make me see the light. I worked for a food bank for 7 years and I suddenly realize I was wrong all along. I was fighting against hunger. God rest her soul, indeed. That was real food for thoughts. Everyone is super motivated to barely make it, and how they enjoy constantly failing to make it, each month with these gloriously huge checks. Standing in line at a public library to get unemployment application? A public library should only be a place to help that mom get a clue, instead of feeding bullshit to her daughter.

We live in Florida. My partner was laid off when covid hit. After months and months of attempting to apply for unemployment on a site that constantly kicked him out, we almost gave up. Once he finally did, apply he was turned down for no reason sited. It is ABSOLUTELY TRUE that the Florida state government makes it near impossible to receive unemployment. The state in general handled the pandemic so poorly. I will hate to see how it handles what comes next, but we are not going to wait around to see.

There is no country on earth that is more generous to unemployed people than America. Californians were given more than any low/medium wage worker in the world due to our uncontrollable spending. America basically pays taxes to the military industrial complex to maintain a strong dollar, so it can borrow as much as possible to give it to the most undeserving among us.

@Romit Kumar You're wrong. I understand socialists keep saying this but it is incorrect. www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/coronavirus-support-workers-comparison The system is also too easy to fraud. There are millions of illegal claims, and many employers are more than happy to cut your hours or lay you off in order for you to get the benefits.

I don't think that's true. Germany, Portugal, France, Spain, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Norway, Belgium, and the Netherlands all provide higher minimum unemployment benefits than the maximum that is provided by the US. And remember, these benefits aren't given to people who quit their jobs or never had a job in the first place, they're given to those who were laid off.

Downvoted for bad economic understanding. Do better. Also, can I remind people that government is always inefficient and if you want to take care of yourself and your family for uncertain times, you should take out your own private unemployment insurance with the monthly payments you are comfortable with and the sums of money you would need if you find yourself out of work. Same goes for life insurance. If you want to help poor people in your area, there are insurances for towns or councils, to prevent people from sudden poverty where everyone in the town needs to chip in a little.

The main reason why there is a general consensus in psychiatric and psychological professional circles that personal problems, disabilities, etc. suffered by adults begin with childhood events needs to be directly stated, for once. As John Oliver heroically points out in this video, we all must be more consciously aware of Elmo's role on the 'Sesame Street' series of causing or at least severely exacerbating the psychological issues, both large and small, that so many of us must contend with throughout our lives. Shame on you, Elmo, and all those sinister elements who prop you up!!

And business will purposefully hire more part time workers than a few full time workers meaning it's easier to find two+ part time jobs than one full time job. That means retail, most food service workers, and most of all students who physical cannot carry a full time job along side classes are out of luck even though they need it. Not to mention that minors who have jobs weren't able to file for unemployment regardless of their economic stance or reasoning for being let go until a few months ago in Minnesota and I'm sure that policies like this still exist in other states. Its all ridiculous.

Man, watching all this shit and meanwhile here in Canada all I had to do was call up my last employer, request a RoE(Record of Employment) then make a service Canada account online and fill out the application online, which would then, assuming I had enough hours worked in the last 53 weeks, get accepted after service Canada got my RoE and even if it took a while for my RoE to get there I would at least get back payment to the day I first made the application anyway, fairly easy process and I didn't even need to leave my home.

"Hunger brings drive". Unless you're a gazillionaire. Then, having your money taken away in taxes, to pay for all the good stuff you get (like roads, power, water, & not getting killed), & all the free education your labor force gets, turns you into a deadbeat. Another brilliant piece of work. Another sad fucking commentary on the state of the U.S., & the U.S. news business, when takes _John Oliver_ to do the damn video.

I'm actually very curious who was asking questions in that Ron Ramsey interview. I'm so used to hearing that BS from politicians, but whoever that was actively called the statements out immediately. I'd like to know who is doing the good work even when the issue doesn't have a lot of attention like this. Update since I decided to visit the site listed: "It is with great disappointment that I must inform our readers that TNReport.com won’t be maintaining news gathering operations this legislative session.". So yeah, I guess go watch Last Week Tonight on Journalism. Still interested on who exactly that was though if anyone knows.

hi john oliver. I really enjoyed the debt episode. and i understood all the angels you took. from a western point who dont think twice on how they secure accommodation its a no brainer, you hit it bulls eye. i been living in western countries for most of my life but have NO or both liberal and or conservative bones in me since I am a Muslim. It doesnt matter who holds the debt, china, japan, liberals or conservatives, they share one commonality which forms a stronger bond for them than any of these labels, they are rich. Debt which i can be 100% sure in most cases means interest i.e increasing overtime is the reason for recesions, they form bubbles that burst and guess who they hurt exclusively the poor. this is not me, some muslim on the interent, this is finincial scholars even though silenced still publish their work on thos cancer im gace of being cancelled by mr big coorape submissive to mr big bank look at the gamestop scenario, when non rich targeted hedge funds the betting companies went all out to stop legal bets. rich getting richer poor getting poorer. In islam a loan is interest free, profits for all cant exceed 30% and taxes are collected on no used items assets monetary or not. if the world did that i assure you there will be no poor to rob. cos thats wat this interest game is. people running out of good spirits and hence ability to work for society, so they use mathmetics to make money. thats not a service, only right way to make money of science and maths is by doing research and or teaching people so it can enhance other services. would love it if you made an episode on interest and how its riuning society from the core. i seen u do some out of it episodes, thinking hes gonna get detsined after this, but will you go the extra mile, will you cut to the heart of the cartel or will those veins/emotions/stakes run to close to cut. do it, i dare you

The drug testing requirement is even stupider when you add the cost of doing those tests. You don't catch _nearly_ enough abusers to cover the costs of the tests alone. So it's cheaper in the net to just pay out to a few abusers. This is the case to some degree for _any_ restrictive measure; every measure has an actual balance. Republicans only talk about one column, Democrats only talk about the other column, so objective appraisals of where the net falls are few and far between. It's been studied for drug testing specifically, and the answer is "don't do drug testing". If anyone can expand on this with other measures, I would love to hear it.

I don't think anything in the US is working anymore, John. I admire your tilting against the windmills, but I'm gloomy about anything actually being done to fix all the things that are broken.

this is why you make example references as John and Jane Doe because there is the "just in case" your John Johnson reference blemishes someone's name and it can be serious accusations, social security is something that everyone defends from the very rich to those that absolutely needs it.

I know this is a low bar, but I think Kentuk's gov deserves some sort of crefit. Cause he stood there, took responsibility, did not obfuscate the facts and apologized. Now, I know telling the truth upfront like this is a low bar to set, except for the fact it's not! Cause the bar is set by what people do, not by what people think other people should do. Most everyone will say you should be honest and they are honest. But, that is a lie right there. And the fact is that this is rare in life, little less politics. All I'm saying is that I'm all in on shitting on those who stand up and lie to use. But that means that I, and so should you be all in on acknowledging when people stand up and speak the truth and take responsibility. We can still shit on his fuck up. But a man/woman should not be judged by their mistakes, rather how they react to those mistakes is what is important. And yes, I stand by my statment cause I alreadty know someone is going to challenge me. But before you do, let me interject my reaply to what I know you're gonna challenge; I said don't judge by peoples mistakes, judge their actions. A mistake is a keyword, meaning if someone is doing an action over and over, thats no longer a mistake. rather its a choice and therefore their actions need to be judge cause its not a mistake. murder, robbing people, domestic abuse. those are not a fucking mistake. So common sense rule applies here. The governor made a mistake. he thought a person lied and said some shit, therefore. but he actually believed it was a lie. so, that is a mistake and therefore we should judge his reactions which was to take responsibility and apologize on national TV. I stick by my statement.

Sad thing is, there is a reason Twitter has a "Nazi problem" and that is they haven't yet found a way for a computer algorithm to tell the difference between Nazi tweets and many Republican tweets, so they have to have actual humans make that determination, which of course will have that individual's bias... Facebook is even worse for pretty much the same reason and more. You can get a suspension for calling someone a silly goose, or for referring to comedian Trae Crowder by his chosen nickname (I am not kidding, I got a 3 day FB suspension for sharing a Trae Crowder video because it was deemed "hate speech" due to his nickname and yes it has me so paranoid I don't even want to type his nickname here.)

The oppression in this country is real.... My family being low income is suffering from a great deal of oppression from the system in place that governs our people.... Laws are made against the poor to keep families of color oppressed and in some cases like ours it flows over to all of the poor not only those of color. As a family we feel the pain our country is suffering through as so much of our case relates. We are currently guilty until proven innocent. Being denied justice or safety because we aren't rich enough to afford a lawyer... By the way modest means... a program to help people retain a lawyer (and in this case we didnt even start any of the court proceedings) Can only lower the retainer to $1,500. (There is even a case we overheard the lawyer and judge discuss by name where a person suffering from mental illness has to defend herself in family court.) We have been battling against the loss of our children for the last 2 years.(they pulled a trump and spread misinformation and made a decade of false reports all unfounded and even brainwashed coached manipulated and mentally destroyed our children.) Recently we received a letter of recommendation from the therapist that states : To Whom it may concern, My name is ******** ********; I am a licensed marriage and family therapist at douglas CARES. I began working with the ***** and ******I family July 9th, 2020 for individual and family therapy due to diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder in many family members. During my time working with the family, they have made immense progress, they are beginning to stabilize however, visits with the kid’s grandparents cause behaviors and anxieties tend to escalate prior to and immediately following contact with their grandparents. There have been several behavioral concerns and stressors prior to and following visits with the children’s grandparents. The girls had been placed in relative foster care, with their maternal grandparents. This placement did not encourage a relationship with their mother and the girls were then moved into nonrelative care. While living with their grandparents the relationship between the girls and Douglas CARES has gone though many challenges. The grandparents would continuously get involved in their treatment and berate them into telling them about their sessions. The grandparents strongly discouraged any positive conversations regarding mom. For example, **** has reported that if she was to behave poorly in visits with her mother or Douglas CARES staff, she would be rewarded with bubble gum ice cream. When **** was ask how long this behavior had been going on with her grandparents, she reported “my whole life.” During **** and ****’s time in care, they have had an estranged relationship with their mother and stepfather; both have been working on reestablishing this relationship in therapy. Both girls are wishing to spend more time with their mother and stepfather at this point. Since the girls have been asking to visit and go back to live with their mother, they have been feeling as if their grandparents are treating them differently. **** has stated that she feels as if her grandparents are mad at her due to wishing to return home. When in sessions with Douglas CARES staff, if they attempted to identify strengths of their mothers or past positive memories, the girls would become agitated and not speak to therapist working with the girls the following visit. Due to these concerns, it is my recommendation that any visits between the **** and ****** family is conducted at the child welfare building. Weekly visits with the girl’s grandparents had become detrimental to the progress the girls are making in treatment. Visits with grandparents should be limited to once a month, supervised at DHS. Since starting visits with their grandparents, **** has begun to act out, including harming her sister, being defiant and having (bathroom) accidents both at night and during the day. I am concerned that these visits are causing a relapse of post trauma anxiety for the family. Thank you very much for your consideration in this matter. And the judge knowing all of this and more still is trying to force us to place our child in the care of people who have done so much to our children already. We as parents are absolutely mortified at the way everything has transposed. We have much more information please contact us by email: allenbowers802@gmail.com
