SpongeBob Squarepants Gets Fired, Seems To Send A Very Clear Message About Public Assistance – Do You Agree? [Video]

In an episode to air next week, SpongeBob SquarePants will be fired from his long standing job at Krusty Crab.

How on earth will he survive? His answer seems to send a very clear message. See if you agree.

In today’s sluggish economy, not even Spongebob Squarepants is spared. In an episode to air on November 11, our beloved yellow sponge is fired from his long standing job at Krusty Crab to save his boss a “whole nickel” from payroll. How will he survive? His decision has people talking.

In an economy in which a recent study reports that 34.3% of Americans over the age of 16 are okay with not having a job, Spongebob’s decision to not rely on public assistance through his unemployment seems to send a very clear message.

On one side, people are applauding Spongebob’s observation that “glorious unemployment” is not for him. At a free all-you-can-eat meal with his best friend Patrick the day after being fired, an already disheveled Spongebob decides that being without a job is not for him. He tells Patrick “Unemployment may be fun for you, but I need to get a job.”

On the other side, people in the media suggest that Spongebob sends a very negative message about our social safety net by choosing not to sign up for public assistance and other benefits.

Nickelodeon will only say that “As always…Spongebob’s eternal optimism prevails, which is always a great message for everyone.”

See how it all plays out next Monday, November 11 on Nickelodeon. Below is a sneak peak of Spongebob being fired from his job of 15 years at Krusty Krab, which also seem to have a very strong opinion on today’s cost-cutting mentality.

Do you applaud Spongebob’s decision to get right back into the workforce and not rely on public assistance, or do you wish that he could send a more forgiving message regarding people who have lost their jobs and need that help to feed their families? As always, we value your feedback. Please share in the comments section below.
