What happens when you pay people to stay home instead of work? You have five million less people in the workforce. Well the governor said enough is enough. His office also announced that Montana would be the first state in the country to fully opt out of the federal unemployment benefit programs, one of which provides $300 supplemental unemployment payments weekly.
Economists tell us that if this lunacy continues we will have five million less workers in the job market. Companies have good paying jobs but folks don't want them cause they make as much and in many situations more money to stay home.
