Bolstering Case for Extending Unemployment Relief—and Higher Wages Overall—Study Shows Recipients Spent More During Pandemic

The jobs for all those unemployed might not be there but the intent of this is to force that pool of workers to make their services available to the lowest bidder. That vast pool of workers suddenly seeking work will depress wages significantly. You add in “you can not sue your employer if you get sick at the workplace due to exposure to COVID” and the working class are in essence thralls and in perpetual servitude to the master Class.
