NPR did a bad story about a small businesswoman in Kentucky whose claims it just took at face value, and you probably shouldn't read it, but you also shouldn't read her blogpost about how the $600 additional weekly federal unemployment means her workers would be making $60,000 a year to stay home, but $600 a week is for sure not $60,000 and also she should shut the fuck up and ALSO also she should probably not pay her workers $1200 a month. (No, it's not $60,000 including Kentucky's portion; her workers would max out at $175 a week in Kentucky unemployment benefits, I looked it up.)
