Brady Concedes Remarks Were Incentive


A Republican candidate for governor now concedes he was “insensitive” in remarks he made this week about people on unemployment.

 

State senator Bill Brady said in a debate this week that manufacturers are having trouble hiring back laid-off workers… because those workers are “enjoying” being on unemployment.

 

Brady now tells the State Journal-Register editorial board that he wasn’t really thinking about those Illinoisans who are on unemployment, but who don’t want to be and who are actively looking for work.
