    Iím pretty sure the taxes you pay go to welfare and not unemployment. My employer and I pay into unemployment - not the tax payers. Thatís why I have to file the claim with the address of the company I worked at for the last 18 months, so division of labor can confirm I was terminated and did not quit or was fired. Also, my company is going to get bought out, which means the marketing dept is the first to go. It's not illegal if they terminate my position.

    I mean I have never done this before so I could be denied for all I know, but short story, my position will be terminated, i will be out of work so i will try to collect.

    Do you know if you have to remain in the state if you collect?

    ok, my apologies then... I can confirm, I really don't know how exactly unemployment works.

    Yeah, your employers pay into it, not taxpayers. That is why most companies will deny you. If your boss it cool with it, do it. My company is always kind to employees who quit for good reason. We have people that move back east to families, or whatever the case may be, but as long as they are in good standing, they typically grant unemplyment to them. I am sure that they get tax relief based on their unemployment pay-outs, so in the end, the companies don't lose a ton of money, but companies paying out unemployment to good standing employees as they "quit" etc, is pretty common place. From what I understand.

    after 26 weeks though when your states program ends the federal takes over, and i think you can collect up to an additional 60 weeks or something. i don't know the figure, but it's EXTREMELY ridiculous. obummer extended it in compromise of extending the bush tax cuts. that is federally funded. you wanna talk about welfare, social security, or trash those programs? that long of unemployment is way too long. especially if they pay you only $1400 bucks a month. i'm not talking you scobeyville i'm talking the federal payouts. since this obama has been in office there hasn't been a social security raise, and they say there will be a small one next year, but it will break even being medicare costs are going up. really? i thought government health care doesn't go up? you can say obama isn't behind this or it's his administration, but he's letting this happen. if you're getting $1400 bucks a month for over 26 weeks i think it would be cheaper to get a full time minimum wage job or two part time minimum wage jobs, and take home $800-$1000 bucks a month, and the government send you a few hundred dollars in food stamps a month. it still would saves hundreds if not a thousand per month. i'm sure someone here will defend this though, and say we need 96 weeks unemployment, and how this president/administration is so wonderful, and he's not the reason seniors haven't gotten a raise. thats crap cause he's allowing this to happen.


    again scobeyville this isn't about you. i've taken 26 weeks unemployment before. if you can get by on it i really have no problem with anyone taking it. as far as the federal unemployment the obama administration has extended i don't begrudge anyone who has taken advantage of it. i point my finger at this administration, and congress for allowing it to go on. enjoy your time off dude, and that may have come out sounding sarcastic, but it's not! have a good move too. don't forget jersey, and your roots though man! haha.

    I dont know if anybody wants an update, but here it goes.
    I've been out here for exactly 1 month. Blew through a good chunk of money already just getting set up (apartment/furnishings/surfboards/wetsuits/skateboard/car insurance). the smog test in california is such bull****, my car wont pass so i have until 7-31 to get it fixed or i cant drive it... Just got hired at the place i really wanted a job today - more money than my job in ac which is dope.

    I was getting ready to walk down the sketchy trail to blacks and i got a phone call from the ad agency i dropped a resume off at last week. I start Monday 8am, stoked!

    The girls out here are *****es, but when you look like a homeless guy and drive a ****ty car i guess its inevitable.
