Red Sails in the Sunset
Looks like the person who made this meme hasn't been trying to pay rent and feed their family while unemployed for 2 months
@Oh so cherry, hope it gets better for you bro! Hang in there
@Oh so cherry, because unemployment with extra pay isnt a thing.
@ThePandaPool , was just gonna say, my entire family is unemployed right now but we’re making more money then ever. The people who have a right to complain are those who are still working, but at jobs that refuse to bump their hours or their pay. If you’re unemployed right now and struggling that’s kinda your own fault if you didn’t get unemployment.
@fishlish, it does annoy me that I'm working 40 hrs a week and I'm making less than unemployed people
@DarkLordMrMeowmers, I heard recently that unemployed people are getting about $600/week. They bumped my pay at target to 15/hr, but it ends next week. Even @ 15/hour, I couldn't make $600/week.
@PsychedelicCow, my pay wasn't increased all they did was give us a one time extra $300 in the beginning of April
@ThePandaPool , if you can get it. In wisconsin most people cant get through to unemployment. So many people unemployed at once that the call centers are full. Litterally heard of people calling a 1000+ times a day and not getting through. Ive essentially given up on it. Though ive heard theyre gonna do backpay.
@DarkLordMrMeowmers, Lol I work in one of the temporary hospitals in the UK, dedicated to Covid-19. All I get is free sandwiches at lunch and the occasional bar of soap that was clearly about to expire in some random warehouse.
Love the ‘donations’ from companies but they are all clearly things that are about to go out of date. Never seen an energy drink with an expiry date of the year we’re in until recently.
@TheBigJ, everything is wack right now
@fishlish, no it isn't lol. Ever consider that max unemployment isn't comparable to some household's income prior to losing his or her job. Further I don't believe it is being paid right in most areas. The fact that you're comfortable staying on unemployment is kind of embarrassing.
@PsychedelicCow, in California they are getting what they would get in unemployment normally and then $600 on top of it.
@fishlish, okay but unemployment can't last forever you can't just pull money from nowhere and give it to people
@GFDOOM, I don't know if that's alot, since the cost of living in Cali is so high, but it sure sounds like it is.
@DarkLordMrMeowmers, that's so lazy on the company's part, cause they didn't know how long this would last, and that's not even a month's rent for most people, but I guess work hazards don't exist and they'll do anything to squeeze out another buck.
@PsychedelicCow, let me rephrase. They are getting what they would normally get weekly so max $450 plus the $600 so $1000 a week. Plus the governor has placed a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures so no one would have to pay rent if they were effected by covid eg people who are not "essential workers" which as a concept is a whole other mess.
@GFDOOM, eww, that does sound like a mess.
@PsychedelicCow, I agree. I love California. I honestly think it's the best state in regards to natural beauty. Besides that it's becoming a dumpster 🔥.
@GFDOOM, I've only been to California once, to San Diego, and it was beautiful
@GFDOOM, it's like that in NY. People on unemployment are making a killing.
@ThePandaPool , yeah it's a real problem. Why work when big sugar daddy gov. is going pay more than if you were? That's just my opinion. I've never been a fan of socialism and that's what some people want.
@GFDOOM, I'm not a socialist either, but this situation is a special case. Drastic times and all.
@GFDOOM, let's not forget that the money the government is giving out now is less than 10% of what was given out to the banks in the bailout.
@ThePandaPool , I agree with that. It's just all the people who are saying "everyone's a socialist during a pandemic", but like you said it's a special circumstance that needs special response.
@Captain Swordsman, tell that to the government, they've been doing it for years. It's part of why inflation and the national debt are as bad as they are.
@DarkLordMrMeowmers, don’t be mad at the players, be mad at the game. The politicians think unemployment is a living wage and not minimum wage. The whole system is fcked and politicians would rather us fight each other than them,
@fishlish, I agree, people are complaining about money and how they don’t have any, the government is all like “How do you need money, we just gave you some.” The country closed for about 2 months how is everyone broke? Then again like I said before we messed up and prioritize this thing called “currency”
@DarkLordMrMeowmers, yep nothing changed with my schedule or pay. Still work my 40 every week for the same pay, while I know others that are making more than me for staying home and playing video games.
I'm currently living in Newark, until my lease is up and I can tell you right now, people are not trying very hard to avoid the virus. I just want to go back to work. I worked under the table before this at an arcade, so I can't even get unemployment pay. I have and have had fvck all for money before, during and after this shjt. It's been 2 fvcking months, I want to eat something other than frozen pizzas and wish sandwiches (wish sandwich: you wish you had a sandwich). Let us get the fvck back to work already
@GayShjtSniper, yeah social distancing is nonexistent here in WA state, I have to constantly wait and tell people “excuse me” so I can pass and walk by, it’s like they don’t know or too ignorant to care.
Politicans are supposed to be civil servants, yet I've never seen them serve any civility
Bro, we messed up so bad in our reality that money seems to trump everything and a priority when it comes to livelihood. Instead of helping others we have to make money...
