The myth of the 'lazy' unemployed

Ah, another person writes in with the true skinny on why people in "the real world" will never get off unemployment ("Payroll taxes and unemployment benefits: two bad decisions," Dec. 28).

Funny, all the people I know who are unemployed are trying their best to get a job. And though grateful for the assistance, they are finding it difficult to make ends meet even with their unemployment checks — all of which, let it be noted, go right back into the economy.
