i agree...but i want to clarify one thing...two of our main employees want unemployment...one of them would be happy to work all winter if we have the hours and asked him to, but the other would rather sit at home and collect UE...that's what i mean by lazy, and i'm sure anyone who has had multiple employees knows what i'm talking about, and obama would gladly take care of them...
there's two types of employees out there...
