The average unemployment check in the US is $293. About 1.3 million people will fall off the 99 week roster in the next 90 days. Minimum wage is about $7.27 and hour, higher in many states. Now, granted that many of the unemployed have been holding out for 'management jobs', basically trying the replace the income they had rather then just go back to work. Do you think that with the falling out of benefits, this displaced workforce would now be willing to take a minimum wage or slightly better job? And if so, do illegals not create a work void by filling jobs Americans would now take? WHats your opinion?
