I'm confused. Why is this in this thread?
Most of the posts here are people's personal opinions - yesitsme is entitled to think it's idiotic to give unemployment benefits for people to go back to work (instead of removing the benefit completely?)

That's great. What does that have anything to do with people doing stupid things which spread Covid?

What's the definition of covidiots? Here's an example from urban dictionary
Did you see that covidiot with 300 rolls of toilet paper in his basket?

Removing the benefit is not an option. Some states already tried that, and it got shot down.

It actually is an option. Many states have done it already.

This has nothing to do with Covid. It has to do with getting unemployment down. As a stand-alone policy, I happen to think it's a great idea. Essentially another stimulus check, but tied to getting people back to work. Regardless, nothing to do with anyone's definition of a Covidiot.

Someone I know met Biden in Surfside when he was there last week and thanked him for the last stimulus check, but mentioned to him that he can't find any workers now and we need to get people back to work. Biden acknowledged the need. Not that it matters, we know he's not blind and stupid.

... And a federal judge ruled that they can't opt out. And therefore they won't be ending it early.

You have a link for that? All I've seen is certain State courts ruled against opt outs (IN and MD, for example).

There's probably an appropriate thread in the politics board, but I try to keep away from those parts. Too infuriating...

Yep! 10% of his salary.
Is that what you were referring to ? “Something else” is very general.
