Did the $600 Unemployment Benefit Encourage Workers to Avoid Work?
President Trump signed an Executive Order supplementing unemployment benefits by $400, down from the $600 supplement from the CARES Act. Anecdotally, business owners complained that the average $930 of unemployment benefits disincentivized work, although a Yale study found otherwise (though, it did not include part-time workers). What are your thoughts? Did you have a difficult time hiring or finding qualified employees with supplemental unemployment in place? Let us know in the comments.
