Quit judging..My husband was let go.. our governor in our awful state of Florida cut 4000 state jobs. We live in an area with 2 mental hospitals and about 4 prisons. So everyone was without work. He looked for 7 months. He had 2 jobs in 30 years.. so his work record was great! He couldn't even get a minimum wage job... there were so many people looking for work. I am sick so can't work.. have about 10 auto immune diseases. There are circumstances where people must rely on help. I have 30 hours towards a massters and my hubby has his masters.. So get off of your high horse and quit judging peoplel

Im in same boat with you guys. I really think all the ugly comments are very ignorant (that means stupid), they must not have job either to have the time looking up something that doesnt even concern them. maybe they still live with mommy and daddy.

I have been drawing unemployment for 6 months. I have actively sought work. The thing is I am not going to take a part time job until I have to and I am not going to take a full time job that pays significantly less until I have to...have worked my whole life and holding out for a decent job.

I am just blown away by some of these comments. People are facing hard times and saying things like just get a job is not helping. There are two sides to every situation. There are people out there that abuse the system for years I agree, but there are also people that just need help to stay afloat until the next hiring manager gives them a job. Now to the comment of Mcdonald's, Target or Walmart even I have had hiring managers tell me that due to what is on my resume it was not worth hiring me. It's not that I am not qualified it is more that he said people use this as a tempory job at your age and he does not want to spend the time an money hiring and training so to speak a person just for them to leave in two weeks. He said to look elsewhere for a job that fits my skill set.I just think we, as Americans are all in this together at some point and need to have some compassion.

I called the unemployment line it said a decision was made and I will receive the decision in 72hrs... Is that a good sign or does it mean I was denied?!?

What a bunch of shit!!!!! I didn't ask to lose my job, laid off due to lack of work. First time since I was 16 that I haven't been employed. College educated and currently have applied for 20+ jobs in the past few weeks. Meanwhile I wait....and wait....and wait....for this itty bitty unemployment check.

Look at the third post. Been collecting since 2008.
Three years and you can't find a job, that's system abuse..Nobody will hand you the perfect job. There are lots of jobs. Maybe not exactly what you want, but you have to walk before you run.
Some people are spoiled and think they are too good to take a job at less money than they made after working someplace for 20 yrs. While you are on the computer reading "Topix" you could be looking for a job instead of looking in the mailbox. Man or woman up..get out of your pajamas and get looking..Unemployment and Disability, the most abused government resources.

This just irritates me. How can he still be drawing a check after this much time? Isn't there a two year limit? When I couldn't find a job that paid as well, I worked one that offered overtime. When overtime didn't meet my needs, I worked THREE jobs, two full time, one part time... And STILL took care of my family. Of course a lot of my hair temporarily fell out...but you do what you gotta do...

Actually no, the poster is not right. He's too stupid to realize that "Oct 08" is referring to the 8th of Oct and not the year 2008.

The letter said unprofessional behavior in the work place..(I had argued with another coworker). Even thou my boss told me he was only going to suspend me for 3 days.. I was suppose to return to work on Monday for a meeting to discuss what changes needed to be made.. But I was unable to go... I let my boss know he called me the next day and fired me

I filed my initial claim on June 2nd......I just received my money on September 7th. I'm finally happy to say that I am now fully unemployed. I went through all my saving, went 2 months without my asthma medications. My children had to start school with clothes that they outgrew over the summer. I tried applying for foodstamps but they said my husband made too much money ($31,000 a yr for a family of 4). TALK ABOUT A FLAWED SYSTEM.

I am now in my 8th week since filing n Tennessee and all I get is thata decesion has not been made. No gas to go to interviews no money for a phone, electric water and gas all due no nothing. I sold an old van lstnth to help guess I will have to sell my work car to make it this month. I ve a companyin Texas tha wants to talk, there is shut down from n to the end of the year but I have no money to get there. Why does it take so long. WREG in Memphis did a story on Tn Unemployment said theywere going to hire more pple to help with the problem, they hired from what I have been told but it still takes so long. I eaton al a day just to conserve. A neighbor has been feeding my little dogs I have two becus he says to take them to a shelter would the would be killed. I cut my neighbors rassfr payment with his mower a gas. When does it end?
