Should unemployment regulations and benefits be changed? The reason that I chose this topic is because of my own personal situation. My mother lost her job almost two years ago and received benefits from unemployment office in Maryland. Presently she is still unemployed and now unable to get benefits.

I don’t think that unemployment benefits should be a lifelong crutch; however there needs to be a change to assist. People who have been diligently looking for jobs, going on interviews and settling for lower incomes are losing their homes, vehicles, services and self-dignity. There needs to be something formed to protect them and rehabilitate them. My mother now lives and depends on me not because she desires to but she has no other choice; this is not fair. The audience for this essay would be the government officials, people who are unemployed, the unemployed office and social services departments. The preliminary thesis statement for this essay would be: If there isn’t a change in regulations for unemployment benefits how will the unemployed survive?
