Does she live in Massachusetts?<quoted text>
My neighbor will not take a recent job offer because she collects more on unemployment. She was making $130K a year, got layed off and collects $90K a year and gets to stay home. Why take a job at $60K a year? 13 more months of being able to collect. I think they should do a study on whom is collecting and refusing job offers and take them out of the jobless rate number. Where else can you do this only in the private sector ! Hmmmm, my taxes are paying for the paper pushers to collect ? Hmmmmm, bailouts for the big companies because their CEO's make all the money ? Where did all that money come from? The sky ? So the private sector doesn't need a union? Now I see why all the private sector workers are sad and unhappy because the harder they work the more money their bosses and owners make except they don't get anything. Too bad you are not in a union.
Reason I'm asking is I was told the maximum amount a person can collect on unemployment is $625 a week.
That does get adjusted slightly for each child you have, but it doesn't increase by $1100 a week I know that.
