Perhaps you could serve your country for a few years, in return they will train you for free in any one of several hundred job skills and pay for college afterwards.
    Agreed. One of the fastest shrinking demographics in America is people who actually pay income tax. Wait tables, bang nails, lifegaurd, etc. Just because you technically CAN take a government handout doesn't mean you have to.

    that is if

    unemployment is not a handout news flash guys your employer had figured how much he paid in unemployment insurance into your premiums. You worked for your unemployment.

    News flash, I'm not looking for any handouts. I have applied to over 15 jobs and what do you know?! I got nothing so far. I'm not trying to milk the system like others who have unemployment for a year or more. I'm just pissed I didn't get the basic 26 weeks which would help out a tremendous right now.

    Stop giving the guy **** for collection unemployment. Has anyone here tried to get a job here? It's impossible. Not even McDonalds is hiring. I have friends that stooped down far enough as fast food places because they were losing their houses, and guess what they still didn't get hired even with there masters degrees!

    Well my industry (commercial maritime) is booming and hurting for people. You don't need a college degree even though I have one and aren't afraid to be away from home for a few weeks. Another pulse is you can live anywhere in the country or out of it. This guy wanted a 5k pay out over 26 weeks to go on a surf trip? I make more than that in four weeks as a deckhand, then have four weeks off to do or go wherever I want. Who wants to work at a fast food change, unless your a high school drop-out or an illegal.

    yea but the question is are you getting paid for those 4 weeks off? if no the you gota split that 5k by 8 weeks and that isnt ****.try barbering anyone who is handy can do it and its basically recession proof. and ui will give you money and pay benifits while you go to school. then just work part time at a shop. its good money too. can make anywhere from 800 to 1300 a week if you have good clientel or in a busy shop
