Unemployment Insurance, Hand-Out?

It’s interesting how people’s ignorance can lead to bad arguments. Unemployment insurance actually IS insurance you have with your state government that is paid through your employer. It isn’t a hand-out. You work for 6 months, you pay your policy. Laid off? You collect on your policy. You finally find a job? You begin paying your policy again. Is it a hand-out? Fuck no it isn’t. Workers invest in their unemployment insurance policy in case they get laid off.

Do you actually pay $1 million in order to get a $1 million life insurance policy? No, you don’t.
