Newswars reported that a large majority of unemployed Americans can receive more in unemployment benefits than what they were earning while being gainfully employed.
During the last few months, 36.5 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits, which prompted Congress to take action in order to tackle this abrupt increase in jobless claims.
However Newswars noted one problem with Congress’ response:
But by giving all of these unemployed workers a repeating 600 dollar bonus on top of existing unemployment benefits, Congress has actually created a very powerful incentive for Americans to be unemployed and to stay unemployed for as long as the bonuses last.
According to a number of well-known economists at the University of Chicago, 68 percent of Americans that are currently unemployed can now earn more money than when they actually held work.
A new study by Peter Ganong, Pascal Noel and Joseph Vavra, economists at the University of Chicago, takes government data from 2019 to estimate that 68 percent of unemployed workers who are able to receive benefits can qualify for payments that are greater than their lost earnings. They also discovered that the estimated median replacement rate — the portion of a worker’s original weekly salary that unemployment benefits are now replacing — is 134 percent higher than their original wage.
Per CNBC, workers in the restaurant and hotel industry can potentially receive “182% of their previous wages”
With these facts in mind, the temptation for Americans to not go back to work is quite high. After all, these benefits are quite generous and can foster dependency.
Additionally, many of these jobs may never come back. According to the Atlantic, “hundreds of thousands of companies” have shut down during this state-induced economic collapse.
Newswars offered a bleak picture regarding these closures:
Small-business activity has plunged nationwide by nearly 50 percent. Hundreds of thousands of companies have already failed. Big retailers such as J.Crew and Neiman Marcus have filed for bankruptcy, while others, including Macy’s, are teetering. By some measures, scarcely one-third of Americans say they are working. Next month’s jobs report will likely show that, for the first time since World War II, a majority of Americans aren’t officially employed.
America will need to get back to work.
Prolonging these shutdowns will leave millions vulnerable and put an even larger fiscal strain on the government as it spends even more money to keep people afloat.
The lockdowns are clearly taking a toll and Americans need a coherent reopening plan to get back on their feet.
The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now
Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.
She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.
Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.
Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.
However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.
She told BLP:
Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.
Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive. It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.
Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country! Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.
Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.
This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.
Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.
Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.
In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.
Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.
This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.
The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
