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.
