“One thing is for certain as we finish the week and head quickly to the end of the year’s halfway mark: millions of people are still out of work,” said Dan Celia. “Job openings hit an all-time record high, and policymakers are trying to deal with this ‘unexpected problem.’ That’s a quote from the so-called policymakers. It’s unexpected because the unintended consequences of what government does can’t ever be considered until right after the unintended consequences have already happened. They can’t seem to think ahead, particularly in crisis. So congressional leaders from both parties are now considering providing federal funding to pay for hiring bonuses.
“The answer is simple! Stop the federal unemployment payments, effective immediately. Then they won’t have to get us deeper into debt, giving people bonuses. The incentive of not being able to eat ought to be incentive enough to go out and get a job. If they take away the bonuses of federal unemployment money, people are going to go back to work. I don’t know why the government continues to try to make something that is very simple extremely complicated, putting more and more debt on the backs of Americans.”
Celia discusses these and other global and economic headlines on his daily, three-hour “Financial Issues” program, heard on more than 660 radio stations and several television networks nationwide, including FISM.TV, viewed on several post-cable television platforms and online.
