Too much of law is not a good thing either. Another personal story, I got hit by a car two years ago and I got covered by the government. I didn't have to pay a dime for the hospital bills and stuff. I was two days in the hospital and when I got out, I had my right leg and arm broken, a right dislocated shoulder, scratches on my body and my right thigh was numb (still numb, by the way). I was covered by the government so it was ok if we didn't sue the one who hit me; however, I had to do the police report and I had to sue him. In the middle of the sueing process, I gave up on it (personal reason). I decided to close the case. A lot of people who knew about it told me it was a loss that I didn't sue the guy. Some of them even told me that I should have faked my condition, in other words, made it worst. I should have gone to the therapy, massage, and so on. I would have gotten a lot of money from that person's insurance company. It made me sick when I was listening to those words. I and my mom felt that it wasn't a loss, but they did. :roll: She said it was ok to close the case since she thought that person did not mean to hit me; it was an accident. Also, she said it was ok to not have that money because it wasn't ours in the first place. That was how we dealt with our problems, Vietnamese way. :lol:
Other people deal with their accidents differently. Some of them even fake it although when there is none. I remember there was once time I and my cousin were in the car. My cousin was trying to park her car near the area that some strange kids were playing. When she was doing a reverse, she saw something kinda "fly" by and then we heard an owie. We both stepped out of the car. There was a kid lying on the ground telling us that my cousin hit him. My cousin got so mad because she knew she did not hit him and that guy was faking it. No matter what we said, he did not get up. My mom was standing near the window saw the whole thing. She came down and was faking that she didn't know us. She told him she witnessed everything. He looked at her really mad then he got up and ran away. Could you believe it? :roll:

According to Arale's saying, I also think that the unemployment benifits is not so attractive that can make people not go to look for a job since it is quite difficult to get that benefits.
However, if there are really someone who has such a thinking,I think it's better for the government to cut the benifits which is providing to them.
Please give this money to the needs.

I completly agree with view that generous unemployment benefit would simply encoruage people not to look for a new job, because peole by nature would rather to have a rest more than work . Unemployment benefit can be a reason to forget about making money and being less responsible for this person's life. I think that benefits should be reduced and should be decresed, but education and diverse interesting and well-paid jobs should be more avaiable. In short people who are able to work should find adequate job and earn for his or her needs. In conclusion benefits should be for hadiccaped people who aren't able to work now and in the future.

I agree with that, but that people are just lazy. I thinkt that everyone want to do something in their live. I would be doing charity work or even take care of my home etc. But i can't do noting all the time. I have to do something. That is important to my life, because i want develop my skills.

I think it depends on a person. Most of us want to have well paid job and stable future. We work hard and gain new experience. But there are also people who ale lazy and don't want to work. In such situations generous unemployment benefit encourages them not to look for a job.

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.
