This makes me so happy I live in Canada. I've always paid taxes to cover Employment insurance and the only time I ever needed it was for 6 months last year during the pandemic. Received it immediately and found a job in Sept. EI isn't free, you fund it with your taxes, and the government just doesn't want to help you, of all the entities in the economy, I firmly believe the US government are the most incompetent and I feel bad for its citizens.

The "man" who doesn't see an issue with his home country being overrun, overpopulated, and ethnically cleansed of it's host population under a fair-seeming disguise of humanitarian compassion. Share and share alike, isn't that right, John Oliver? After all, it's not you who has to walk through the destruction of a gang-festering rap-music filled London cesspool, overpopulated and doomed to strife. After all, You are a successful celebrity living a comfortable life, making immense wealth by turning a phrase and portraying a joke, usually aimed at undermining Western civilization, and mocking the existential situation of your own people. Making light of our own obliteration. What a stand up guy you are, John Oliver.

My neighbors, four adults and one teenager are all unskilled workers in the food and beverage services industry. They have all been "out" of work since last March 2020. They recently and openly told my wife and I, they're all receiving unemployment (UIB) $350 , pandemic (PUA) $100 and lost wage pandemic / extension benefits (FEUC) $900+-, that is a grand total of $6,750 per month. They're also receiving $929 in Food Stamp benefits per month. That is a grand total of "lost wage benefits" and food stamps benefits of $7,679 per month for this family. There are NOW HIRING signs on every restaurante but they are choosing to stay home and not go back to work..... why should we blame them but this is got to stop at some point.

Perhaps when this is all over we can start to challenge the government line *"there is no evidence"* ... On drug policy, On prison reform, On mental health, On socioeconomic outcomes.... The countries of the world have done extensive research and they have *"The Evidence"* just like all those times during the pandemic when the government said: There's no evidence the virus affects children, There's no evidence general mask wearing affects transmission, There's no evidence the virus spreads in the air, There's no evidence of asymptomatic spread, There's no evidence of long term health consequences... NO EVIDENCE MY ARSE. If the pandemic has taught us ANYTHING it should be that sharing medical and scientific research with other countries is not just *_possible_* but is actually sensible.

Laura Ingrahm is awful and so is Rick Scott, he’s easily the most ruthless and corrupt Governor we’ve had in my lifetime. But has anyone considered that the massive numbers of unemployment that we’re seeing right now is because the government forced businesses to shut down thus forcing people out of work. Also, when the federal government fumbled the COVID response so badly, why should we have any faith that it would be able to handle unemployment if 20 million Americans suddenly became unemployed again like they did during this pandemic? And before you say “that was just Trump’s fault” remember the debacle that was the rollout of Obamacare; the website literally crashed several times over a period of weeks. My point in all of this is that John Oliver makes a lot of good critiques, but seems to leave some key points out and then just comes to the wrong conclusion of “let’s put all of our faith in the federal government to handle it properly”

In New York State, where unemployment payments are on the higher end, the additional $600 made it so that people who filed and received unemployment during the pandemic were making more money then those working minimum wage jobs. So, for a while there, a lot of people chose not to go back to work because they'd make less money at work. Keep in mind the cost of living in a lot of New York State --- state, not city -- is pretty low anyways. As a country, we definitely need to rework the unemployment system.

I'm a seasonal work and get laid off in the winter, and because of how disorganized CT's unemployment was, I couldn't get ahold of a representative...until AFTER I went back to work. It meant that I only got a fraction (2 weeks) of the two months I was laid off, so now I have to dip into my savings because unemployment was supposed to cover those two months, but now I'm almost two months short in my checking for my rent and other bills. We'll see if, even now that I've returned to work, if I can even afford to spare enough to eat healthily.

"It's nobody's fault." But it is - the government's. It's the government's fault. They created the unemployment with their draconian policies and continue to subsidize it. The businesses who were fortunate to survive the last year are now having a hard time hiring anyone back because people can take more for unemployment. The economic benefit of unemployment insurance he talks about goes directly to the large corporations where the vast majority of that money gets spent. The very corporations that politicians pretend to be against. Meanwhile small and medium size businesses disappear because they can't even hire staff to scale up their operations again. This causes even more people to go on unemployment and gives even more market share to large corporations. It's a vicious cycle that only creates more economic misery in the long run. It's a fine policy to get some people by in a rare tough time, but not this many people and not for this long. Unfortunately, you can't solve problems created by government with more government. Then people wonder how the rich got richer during a pandemic. Tax the rich and give us more government benefits they scream. Will we ever learn?

We live in Florida. My partner was laid off when covid hit. After months and months of attempting to apply for unemployment on a site that constantly kicked him out, we almost gave up. Once he finally did, apply he was turned down for no reason sited. It is ABSOLUTELY TRUE that the Florida state government makes it near impossible to receive unemployment. The state in general handled the pandemic so poorly. I will hate to see how it handles what comes next, but we are not going to wait around to see.

So, I guess you're moving? It's kinda nice with the pandemic knowing in Massachusetts I'm pretty much safe since it's a liberal state. My uncle wanted to move the entire family to Florida since Mass is too liberal and expensive but since this pandemic hit we realized how good of a state we lived in. It blows my mind how unsafe in my own country some areas are. I hope the best of luck to you!

There is no country on earth that is more generous to unemployed people than America. Californians were given more than any low/medium wage worker in the world due to our uncontrollable spending. America basically pays taxes to the military industrial complex to maintain a strong dollar, so it can borrow as much as possible to give it to the most undeserving among us.

@First Last You needed to be a bit more specific, *during COVID*. yes, the US spent big to save the unemployed during Covid, but before, and most likely after, their generosity will disappear and fall behind Germany, Portugal etc.

@Romit Kumar You're wrong. I understand socialists keep saying this but it is incorrect. www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/coronavirus-support-workers-comparison The system is also too easy to fraud. There are millions of illegal claims, and many employers are more than happy to cut your hours or lay you off in order for you to get the benefits.
Romit Kumar
Romit Kumar 10 days ago
I don't think that's true. Germany, Portugal, France, Spain, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Norway, Belgium, and the Netherlands all provide higher minimum unemployment benefits than the maximum that is provided by the US. And remember, these benefits aren't given to people who quit their jobs or never had a job in the first place, they're given to those who were laid off.

Downvoted for bad economic understanding. Do better. Also, can I remind people that government is always inefficient and if you want to take care of yourself and your family for uncertain times, you should take out your own private unemployment insurance with the monthly payments you are comfortable with and the sums of money you would need if you find yourself out of work. Same goes for life insurance. If you want to help poor people in your area, there are insurances for towns or councils, to prevent people from sudden poverty where everyone in the town needs to chip in a little.

The main reason why there is a general consensus in psychiatric and psychological professional circles that personal problems, disabilities, etc. suffered by adults begin with childhood events needs to be directly stated, for once. As John Oliver heroically points out in this video, we all must be more consciously aware of Elmo's role on the 'Sesame Street' series of causing or at least severely exacerbating the psychological issues, both large and small, that so many of us must contend with throughout our lives. Shame on you, Elmo, and all those sinister elements who prop you up!!

And business will purposefully hire more part time workers than a few full time workers meaning it's easier to find two+ part time jobs than one full time job. That means retail, most food service workers, and most of all students who physical cannot carry a full time job along side classes are out of luck even though they need it. Not to mention that minors who have jobs weren't able to file for unemployment regardless of their economic stance or reasoning for being let go until a few months ago in Minnesota and I'm sure that policies like this still exist in other states. Its all ridiculous.

Man, watching all this shit and meanwhile here in Canada all I had to do was call up my last employer, request a RoE(Record of Employment) then make a service Canada account online and fill out the application online, which would then, assuming I had enough hours worked in the last 53 weeks, get accepted after service Canada got my RoE and even if it took a while for my RoE to get there I would at least get back payment to the day I first made the application anyway, fairly easy process and I didn't even need to leave my home.

"Hunger brings drive". Unless you're a gazillionaire. Then, having your money taken away in taxes, to pay for all the good stuff you get (like roads, power, water, & not getting killed), & all the free education your labor force gets, turns you into a deadbeat. Another brilliant piece of work. Another sad fucking commentary on the state of the U.S., & the U.S. news business, when takes _John Oliver_ to do the damn video.

Can somebody please explain the "two-twist" hair thing? As a shaven headed Irish man, I don't understand hair.

I know this isn’t the real problem behind this video but I worked with a guy named Paul McCartney. About the same age as the famous one. It’s not unlikely for parents to name their kids after famous people, and in my co workers case, it can be a happy little coincidence.

I'm actually very curious who was asking questions in that Ron Ramsey interview. I'm so used to hearing that BS from politicians, but whoever that was actively called the statements out immediately. I'd like to know who is doing the good work even when the issue doesn't have a lot of attention like this. Update since I decided to visit the site listed: "It is with great disappointment that I must inform our readers that TNReport.com won’t be maintaining news gathering operations this legislative session.". So yeah, I guess go watch Last Week Tonight on Journalism. Still interested on who exactly that was though if anyone knows.

hi john oliver. I really enjoyed the debt episode. and i understood all the angels you took. from a western point who dont think twice on how they secure accommodation its a no brainer, you hit it bulls eye. i been living in western countries for most of my life but have NO or both liberal and or conservative bones in me since I am a Muslim. It doesnt matter who holds the debt, china, japan, liberals or conservatives, they share one commonality which forms a stronger bond for them than any of these labels, they are rich. Debt which i can be 100% sure in most cases means interest i.e increasing overtime is the reason for recesions, they form bubbles that burst and guess who they hurt exclusively the poor. this is not me, some muslim on the interent, this is finincial scholars even though silenced still publish their work on thos cancer im gace of being cancelled by mr big coorape submissive to mr big bank look at the gamestop scenario, when non rich targeted hedge funds the betting companies went all out to stop legal bets. rich getting richer poor getting poorer. In islam a loan is interest free, profits for all cant exceed 30% and taxes are collected on no used items assets monetary or not. if the world did that i assure you there will be no poor to rob. cos thats wat this interest game is. people running out of good spirits and hence ability to work for society, so they use mathmetics to make money. thats not a service, only right way to make money of science and maths is by doing research and or teaching people so it can enhance other services. would love it if you made an episode on interest and how its riuning society from the core. i seen u do some out of it episodes, thinking hes gonna get detsined after this, but will you go the extra mile, will you cut to the heart of the cartel or will those veins/emotions/stakes run to close to cut. do it, i dare you

So many things in America are broken. I don't think they will ever get fixed. As long as there is money to be made in keeping people stupid and poor, it will never end.

Its amazing to witness how much psychopathic elitist crap the USA puts up with especially when you consider how this country was created. I guess America feels like it missed out on medieval absolutism and must go though a feudal phase to feel complete

Last week I almost forgot to put my trash out and ran to give it to the trash man. I told him he was lucky that he had a job because my neighbors had losts theirs . He just said to me “ This job I just started a month ago and you would be surprised at what I really do . I am not going to wait for unemployment and see my family go hungry”. Unemployment is just a blanket for lazyness.

“When you’re hungry, you’ll find a way to eat-“ might be true but ‘a way’ can mean things she might not like, up to and including a people’s revolution (or just stealing electronics to flip; you all get the point).

The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!

The drug testing requirement is even stupider when you add the cost of doing those tests. You don't catch _nearly_ enough abusers to cover the costs of the tests alone. So it's cheaper in the net to just pay out to a few abusers. This is the case to some degree for _any_ restrictive measure; every measure has an actual balance. Republicans only talk about one column, Democrats only talk about the other column, so objective appraisals of where the net falls are few and far between. It's been studied for drug testing specifically, and the answer is "don't do drug testing". If anyone can expand on this with other measures, I would love to hear it.
