    They protest the cutoff of long term UI benefits? Why?? Are they continuing their training to make government dependency a life time career???
    A man or woman cannot support their family on a minimum paid job working at a fast food restaurant even working double shifts. The critics are forever saying there are plenty of jobs available. Yes, but they don't pay enough to provide decent food ,clothing and shelter.
