Huh. Paying people not to work increases the number of people not working.

Patrick Tyrrell and Anthony Kim summarize a recent study of the effect of enhanced unemployment on the job market:

If common sense and reports from thousands of employers weren’t enough, a recent National Bureau of Economic Research paper found conclusively that paying people not to work during the COVID-19 pandemic was why many of them remained unemployed.

Well, nothing’s real anymore until some academic conducts a study, at least when Democrats and the mainstream media branch of their party want it not to be real.
