    If they figured the percentage of folks not working, it would be a couple times as high. There are countless thousands of those with their snouts in various government troughs that are employed and well paid with their generous benefits untouched that haven’t worked for months.

      Wow, 600 bucks a week. That’s over 30K a year!!! That’s pretty much below the poverty line for a family of 4. Might even be able to go out to dinner once a month.

        > Yet another lie out of Jay. The amount you claim is under the poverty line for a family of 4 is, in reality, more than $6000 OVER the poverty line for them.
