Unemployment Insurance

May 28, 2009

I really think that unemployment insurance needs to be renamed. Seriously. I have been working since I was 14 years old. I will be 40 in a few months. I have only collected benefits twice in that time. (The first time was only one check and once even though I ‘qualified’ for benefits I received none because my employer was a catholic school and wasnt required to pay into the fund) The one time I did receive full benefits I asked my employer to fire me to ensure I would receive my benefit.
The way I overtand it, UI is for people out of work. You pay for it and so does your employer, yet you have no guarantee of ever seeing a single penny. If you quit no matter why (with the exception from what I have been able to tell of sexual harrassment) you get nothing. You get fired and you might or might not get anything. There are so many rules you can never be sure. Lets say the company you work for goes out of business, but you’ve only been there a month. You get nothing. Doesnt matter that you have never collected before that.
Look my medical insurance doesnt deny my claim because I fucked that whore bare back and got the clap. My car insurance doesnt deny my claim because I was eating shit and not paying attention when I rear ended that school bus full of parapalegic kids. (Both just examples btw) Yet unemployment will deny your claim for anything they can. Plus you have no choice you have to pay them. They are worse than the mob.
What truely puzzles me is how illegal immigrants are able to collect but I can’t.
