And I don't see why unemployment makes people wanna not hire someone. Not everyone thats unemployed is unemployed because of their choosing, and the one thing that makes unemployment harder to get get out of is that no one wants to hire you when your unemployed. I've been struggling for like a whole year now to find a job after I got out of the army. I was so broke for awhile I kept taking jobs I really wasnt good at, or couldnt afford to stay at long and now its even harder to find a job since i didn't perform well at my last 3 jobs and pretty much got fired. Does this affect my performance at my next job? No but alot of HR reps/ possible future employers beg to differ. Ive had 8 different jobs in 2016, and after this temp thing is over with the state it looks like I might be going full time as a scrapper again. And I'll probably have to collect unemployment as well even though I'm sort of against collecting from the tax payers. It'll be **** near impossible to get a job with someone other than SWIFT then. Even though I'm honest and work hard as $hit people would rather hire the lazy lying sack of crap that looks better on paper than hire me.
