Despite Red States thinking that cutting unemployment benefits would force people back to work at crappy jobs that pay nothing, the opposite is what is happening. These states are actually seeing less people actively apply and fill open jobs than states that still have benefits. What is going on here? Are residences of Red States just lazy AF, or could it be that people have realized they are not going to be working as slave labor for no money anymore?

Too early to tell. That "study" is very stupid though.
