The unemployed person will have debts they'll be responsible for, mortgages, credit cards, student loans... insurance payments, a quality of lifestyle for possibly kids and a spouse, yet people begrudge these people even a meagre payment from the government. Hopefully the person will find satisfying work quickly.
Most people have been conditioned to be a slave to what life should be about, getting a good house in a good neighbourhood, buying lots of stuff and the start of this treadmill of slavery is get an education that comes with huge student loans. But of course, education means you can get a better more interesting job, hopefully, where you'll be paid more and hence be able to pay back your debts quicker and money is freedom.
And this is where we go back to unemployment, the biggest problem with unemployment is boredom and loneliness. What can you do when you are unemployed? Go to the library is about the only thing the unemployed can do for entertainment for free, and even that is not very engaging. The other problem with unemployment is loneliness, low engagement with other people.
Much of what is wrong with unemployment can be summarized by Maslow's hierarchy. What I think is missing though in the list is meaningfulness and general human contact. Human contact isn't limited to family and meaningfulness can over-rule things like sex and food some. Sometimes family can provide meaningfulness but meaningfulness may replace family. Love also make life meaningful and so does success.
However meaningfulness can be essential in making life worth living.
The unemployed generally suffer from a low quality of life because they may have to go without many necessities, like food. They may not have all the things 'successful' people have, such as the latest technology toys. They lose contact with others and many people get their meaningfulness from their job. They are a necessary member of a team achieving something useful for others.
Some people turn to drugs to make extra money or to pass the time, which can turn them into criminals if they are caught, or they may resort to crime just to make ends meet when if we had paid for them to return to college or university they individuals would get social contact, be engaged in something possibly meaningful while at least allaying boredom.
In extreme cases people will get suicide by rampage, killing many people with their guns because there is a lack of mental healthcare available.
We had been anticipating there would come a time where there wouldn't be full employment because of advances in technology and outsourcing peoples jobs to other countries, yet our 1% begrudge paying the unemployed a pittance to live on and wash their hands of the unemployed person's quality of life.
One size does not fit all. Not everyone can be an entrepreneur, not everyone is capable of starting their own business. Not all of us want the same things.
