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.
