    Unemployment money is earned when you worked. Every citizen has some and depending in how long you've already worked and were paid determines how much you have to draw from. It's your own money. Read your next paycheck...

      Get off your pedestal, bitch. You think finding a job is easy? It's a challenging task for all, even the educated. This isn't welfare; it's unemployment. They did their time, they were laid off, and now they deserve whatever money they get. Seriously, go fuck yourself. I'm assuming you're a self righteous christian with an attitude like that. Yes, that's me judging you just as you're judging them.

        First of all, you don't know me so don't call me a bitch. And I have no pedestal, I've been supporting myself since I was 17. I paid for all my own bills working in fast food because it's what I had to do. And now I'm putting myself through college while raising my 4 month old son and working. If you get laid off, get off your pedestal and get a job wherever you can if you're that desperate. Don't take money from people like me, who works and has a family to raise and bills to p

          I just graduated after getting my BA (with high grades, too) and I've been applying for every single job imaginable- cleaning, fast-food, whatever- I don't give a damn, I'd do anything, and I'm on unemployment. Getting a job is HARD. Especially if you don't already have a job. You are on a pedestal. Get down off it and realise your life is hard, but that doesn't make everyone else's easy.

      While I won't put you down, I find you to be on a pedestal. Unemployment is there for a reason and it is paid for by employers. Look it up. If you choose not to use it that's fine but do not judge someone else because they do. This person might have made it sound like they will drink it all away but when bills come do they won't be drinking. Calm down and enjoy your own life.

    I am on unemployment. I was not aware my job was at risk when I lost it. It is the economy as it is that has caused this situation. The company that lets you go who pays, at least in GA. They pay insurance for this exact situation. We are all trying to support ourselves. Perhaps those on unemployment help teach the employers to be more professional in their decisions when others' livelihood is at stake. Yes, taxes are paid on the income, and it is a fraction of what you used to be making. It does howev

    Continued- however help lend an amount time to find a job you like instead of picking up the first opportunity that can leave you again jobless. People are not awarded unemployment when fired unless done so wrongfully by their employers. Sticking up for yourself is a beautiful thing. I'll toast to that!

    You paid taxes the whole time you were employed (and you still are) and your employer paid unemployment insurance. You are not taking money out of anyone's pocket by being on unemployment. In fact, you and your friend maybe opened up two positions for people in need of work. So enjoy your freedom for as long UC benefit will support it and hope you don't need to worry about retirement or medical coverage. I wish I could get some unemployment.

      I'm afraid you're missing the point on the purpose of unemployment. Just because someone is laid off does not mean they aren't a hard worker. Learn to read. By the way, I forgot to add ignorant to my Christian description. Way to fit that description.
