    If you just lost your job like most waiters\bartenders etc have then it might do a lot for you. Not only that a lot of people didn't lose their jobs but had their hours cut back drastically. It's weird to me how everyone thinks this money wont help anyone. We get it your doing great so am I but it's stupid to think $1000 wont help all these people looking for jobs.

    Good points. I was more thinking about how quickly $1,000 goes for my coworkers that have families, mortgages, expensive car payments, etc.

    I know they spend way more than they should but it just seems like a slap in the face to some of them because they make good money for the area. Like tossing change to a stripper almost.

    I should probably worry more about their spending habits than them getting a handout I consider small. Thanks for the differing opinion.

    My first job was 9 dollars an hour. I paid for my college education and everything else since then. How about you?

    Make it universal otherwise it will be held up by a slow roll out due to major red tape

    It's much easier for the Fed to add a one and two zeroes the US' account.

    Yes, they're the people most likely to spend it immediately. What is someone was between jobs or something. The bureaucratic nightmare of sorting all that out would be a waste of time and money.

    $$$ is not the measure of a man.

    I know plenty of rich people, (some are VERY RICH) and ones bank account does NOT equate to ones ACTUAL worth.

    I know several teachers, (one of my sisters is a teacher) and they work work work (in proportion to how much they actually care about their job) and get SHIT pay.

    It's all relative, and...you should not be so unchill. It's not good for you.

    Adult USA citizens should get a stimulus check because everyone is suffering from this, the virus doesn't know who is employed and who isn't.
    I think the unemployed should be included, also people who are independent contractors or work freelance might not get any either. Politicians still trying to restrict cash flow, just send the checks man, stimulate the economy.

    Yes. This is about help in a time of crisis, not about income level, or employment, or what you pay in taxes. People who are too poor to pay taxes need help even more.

    I think my first job paid something like $4.25/hr, which was minimum wage at the time.

    It's crazy if they don't give unemployed adult people who didn't pay taxes last year a check, those are the ones who really could use this check. I saw one politician say not to give a check to a single male who does computer programmer but lives in his parents basement lol but to give them to single moms more. first said give them checks if you ain't a millionaire you will get a check regardless if you employed or not, but these politicians still trying to siphon that money, no shame at all. This is a crisis they need to stimulate economy now.

    Perhaps we’re misunderstanding each other.


    His comment was

    “I don't need 1000 and I won't even qualify for it in the first place”


    It turns out it wasn’t either, he’s just too young.


    I’m not used to arguing with theses little whippersnappers!!!
