If you are on unemployment and insist on cash only or you refuse to work, you are a parasite on the system and part of the reason this country is in such poor shape.
Fun fact about unemployment: You will not lose your benefits if you work a part time or per diem. Your benefits will be reduced 50 cents for every dollar you earn but you can still claim. A person that came on board long term could also claim benefits while they work part time (if you report you are still job hunting). If somebody signs up for the part time gig and finds a full time job in the future, more power to ya! As long as you give me so notice I'll be fine with that.
