These benefits are not for those who were fired for reasons like theft, tardiness, or misconduct. They are for employees that were laid off, the benefits were paid into for years. It's not a case of someone getting paid to do nothing, it's to help honest hard working people survive when their employer leaves them hanging out to dry. The same employers that are to blame for these cuts. NC business leaders have gone to the state government 6 times over the past few years to have unemployment taxes cut, that's where the money went. Now that the Barons got their tax cut, the out of work Peasants pay the price for it. Typical Republican politics, more for the rich, fuck the poor.
