Another problem with paying $9-$11 an hour is the the unemployment in Ohio pays more than that and you can now collect for a total of 78 weeks if you qualify for all four exstensions, That is BS, what happened to 20 weeks? Thanks Obama now we cant find laborers to work cause they get a free check for a year and a half! And all they have to do after the 78 weeks run out is work for 20 and collect all over again, WTF!
