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 :-|
