The Unemployed Preferring Working After All

Not mentioned in any of the articles about the resurgent economy was the death of the Republican myth that the unemployed didn’t want to work, that they were willing to live high on the hog with the benefits given to them by Democrats.  But surprisingly those who faced bleak employment opportunities have re-entered the job market.  That is the cause of the rise in the unemployment rate.  It seems if the job market improves the unemployed seek jobs after all.  The “luxurious” life of the unemployed is not so attractive.
