is to use the unemployment benefits as barometer of what a worker SHOULD be earning. That puts accountability and responsibility on the employer not the employee. Having said that those I know who were furloughed during the pandemic received far less than what they would have normally earned. Then again, those amounted to roughly 8-10 people I've run into. Generally, I think most people would rather be at work for many reasons. Staying at home is a lonely bore, co-workers form a different social relationship than friends and neighbors, no daily home chores, just getting outside "in the world" is healthy. Nevertheless, I can't look down on people who are earning so little that an unemployment check is a driving engine forcing them to stay home.
