Huckabee: Worst thing that can happen to economy is paying people not to work (video)

NY giving unemployed illegals money is an ‘outrage’ to tax payers, argues Huckabee

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee weighed in on New York giving money to illegal immigrants laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic, in an appearance Thursday on FOX Business “Varney & Co.” The former governor went on to say that this decision is an “outrage” to all tax payers in New York.

MIKE HUCKABEE: “Well, I can tell you they don’t go back to work. I was talking to the manager of a Waffle House who’s having to use takeout orders only in some of the restaurants because some of the employees are saying, look, I can’t come back until June because that’s when my stimulus check will run out. When you pay people as much to not work as they get paid to work, well, people don’t work. If you have a construction project going on, as I happen to do right now, good luck finding people that want to come out and work until their stimulus check runs out. This is an outrage.
