Sure, we have to do more. We are focused like a laser beam to make sure that we have our training, job-training dollars working and partnerships with community colleges and employers to make sure that we find the right employees to get into those jobs that are available. We have seen a reduction from those individuals; at the beginning of this recession it was about seven applicants for one job. Now it is down to about three-to-one. We’ve got to do better and the way we do it is by incentivizing businesses.

    Question: If the unemployed are using that money to pay for food, rent etc., how do they use it to invest in their own business?
    Question: If they have enough money to pay for food, rent, etc., why should they be getting unemployment benefits?
    Questions: Does this lady live in reality? Does this administration live in reality? How do we take anything they say seriously?

    fantasy tries again to cross over into reality for those asses...so which should they cut out to start a business? food, housing, energy?

    Wait, does she mean individual benefits, or is she suggesting that Unemployment Insurance be used to provide startup money for new businesses? Big difference there.

    Someone in this administration needs to make brain scans a mandatory requirement before allowing obie to appoint these idiots

    For most people unemployment benefits are subsistance level crutches. Which portion of our food, energy and housing does he think we can use to start a business?
