I’m writing in response to the editorials in the May 15 edition by Greg Johnson and Megan McArdle. Hallelujah! Gov. Gordon is ending the supplemental jobless benefits! Kick those deadbeats off the couch! Turn off Netflix! Vacation’s over!
Just how many people do you think are sitting around collecting extra money instead of working? Do you consider the woman who can’t find child care a deadbeat loser? How about the woman taking care of a cancer-stricken family member or other compromised person who is afraid to go back to work in case she inadvertently brings the virus home since three-quarters of Wyoming residents are too “independent” to get the vaccine?
