I suppose that this difficult topic and everything depends on the people. Every person is different. Some people want to work, because this is their passion or hobby, but another people can be lazy and they choose easy way to life without work, problems and generous unemployment benefit encourages them not to look for a job.

I think it is true because sometimes people don't want to go to work. They want to get money in easy way. The unemployment benefit encourages people not to look for work because people know that they get money from government and as a result they don't develop their skills and don't worry about life and future.On the other hand some people would like to go to work because they want to met a new friends and get a new experince. This topic depends on personal life's preferences. {-;

So, I think this sentence have some rights. In our planet lives a lot of different people and for sure some of them don't work just 'cause they are having some benefits from government. But for sure there are a lot of people who just can't find job. Or job is really poorly paid. And if sth have generous unemployment benefit and find some job for, suppose- 90% of it, it's clear that he won't working for smaller money than when he won't working:)

I agree that unemployment benefit encourages people not to look for work. It is obvious that everyone prefers to do nothing than to do something. If someone gets money for doing nothing, why should start doing something to make money? Every man is the architekt of his own fortune. Support for the unemployed is incomprehensible to me.

I think that unemployment benefit sonetimes encourages people not to work. Everyone is different. Some people like they work and they can't imagine life without it, but others are lazy, they don't like working and they just want some money for their basic needs.

I think in most cases unemployment benefit encourages people not to look for work and it depends on who you are. Most of us more like doing what we want to do than working (and still getting money for nothing!). But there are some people who are more ambitious and they want to work to meet new people or learn new things.

I think it depends on ambition. Some people feel badly claiming unemployment benefits and they want to find a job in order to make money. On the other hand there are also people who are lazy and they prefer lumping. Unemployment benefit may be encouraged for them.

At first sight yes, when we unemployees we have a lot of time to do many things for example going on the trips, learn new things, meet new people or maybe even fall in love... I think that unemployment benefits are benefits as long as we have money. Most of people want to work to have stable life and no worries.

i don't think that this is reason why people do't look for work, in my opinion problem is in the fact that the people are just lazy i they don't have qualifications for job, and they just stop looking for job.

Wealthy countries often offer a support for unemployed. However sometimes it is too good. Simply being unemployed provides more money than full time work.‏

I agree with that and I think that if someone does not have health problems, this should work, even forcibly, so as not to slow down our economy expenses for people fit for work

I think it can be possible. Unemployment benefits are a simple way to have no motivation to do anything. Of course, if somebody is determinate, he or she will get a new job anyway, but many times job searching is finished when he or she says "no one will hire me". We can literally make anything happen if we want it enough, but unemployment benefits make some people more lazy.

I think that it is true because in this world people have a lot of chance to have a money without job. The country offer a lot of help for unemployed and give them the same care and dole just like for people who have a work. So as a result people think that work is unnecessary if they have everything what they need. But in the same time there is a lot of people who can't imagine their life wothout job because for them is a way to meet new people, achieve new success and improve their abilities.

I think they grant this benefit to those who really need it.

I think, this will depend on the country, because in my country, everybody wants and needs to work. Moreover, in countries where corruption is extensive an appropriate or acceptable law/rule is necessary.

I Think unemployment benefit like many of u have said only supports jobless and near poverty people. Truth be told I actually do not consider this kind of wages as a benefit I mean come on it ain't like it's going to lift up his bad financial conditions :-|
