One big reason unemployment is so high in Michigan

Apparently, the state's Democrats are trying to add an additional 26 weeks of unemployment benefits to the 79 weeks (!!!) already provided to the state's pool of jobless men and women. More or less, they're already paying people not to go on with their lives for a year and a a half, and want to extend that to a full two years--and of course charge employers for the privilege of having employees who think that they're entitled to over $20/hour with no discernable skills.

And then the Democrats wonder why businesses aren't coming to the mitten.

I think there has to be some reasonable safety nets in our society, but I am guessing 2 years of unemployment ain't anywhere near reasonable, and has become more of a feather bed (made to lull people to sleep) than a safety net.
