The government is now offering $600, the equivalent of $15 an hour, or double the federal minimum wage, to people who've lost their jobs because of the coronavirus. A Kentucky cafe owner says she's had to close because her workers make more staying home.
Remember when and warned about the $600 a week UE benefit and how it would create an incentive to not work? They took a beating in the media for doing it. Now, this happened. And it’s not the only place.
Some businesses that want to keep their doors open say it's hard to do so when employees can make more money by staying home.
i think i'm gonna wait on the official word here, lol
