Guest Patti Kurgan joins Kim to examine the question: “Why Work?”  The additional $600/week unemployment compensation from the federal government has incentivized some employees to not answer the call to come back to work.  A new bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives where individuals starting at the age of 16 years old could get $2000/month for a minimum of six months and most probably longer with the clause that the employment rate would have to be what it was pre-COVID-19.  Paying individuals to not work begins to move The Overton Window towards a Universal Based Income.  Vote buying comes into play, once again.  The best solution, open up businesses and get employees back to work.
