Should there be a limit on how long one can receive unemployment benefits? [View all]

How many years should one receive these benefits?

Some people can make as much with unemployment compensation as they can working a job. Where is the incentive to work? And why would someone work a menial job if they can receive the same amount with an unemployment check?

What is your opinion on this?
