extended uninsurance benefits realized

I went into my dentists office today to check on a few things and got to talking with the Office Manager. It turns out that my little dentist office with only 5 employees has seen 10 unemployment rate hikes in the last quarter. These hikes have taken their unemployment payments from a mere $70 to $700 dollars. They have not laid anyone off. They keep their rates low. They are a good office that takes military and children's medicaid. They would love to take more, but then they would lose money on salaries.

This business has done nothing to add to the unemployment crisis and they are being penalized for it.

Imagine the cost for business with more than 5 employees....
