typical my hard arned tax dollars wasted cuz you can't accept the fact that you did something wrong. maybe you should be more productive at what you do! btw can't collect unemployment if fired for just cause!

New York State is a fire at will state.A employer can fire you for no reason.As long as it does'nt have to do with sex,creed,color,religion,etc.I t is one of the few states that have a fire at will law.No protection for the employee's

Lets not leave out Walmart Distribution in Marcy. I predict that place will be the site of a workplace shooting. Just to many people with 15 years in there fired for petty reasons that make no sense. Hopefully those people will take it as a blessing and not feel long term anger. Its just sad to see someone whom you know busted their butts for years to get treated like scum and walked out. Remember "Nice guys finish last" Walmart is #1. Need I say anymore?
Hartford Insurance does the same thing - Companies are firing their long term employees so they don't have to pay the benefits for them once they work long enough to retire.

For those who care about clients working at Insight House is torture. All about money honey and not client care.

I work for the ARC and we are very underpaid and for what we do. the health benefits are bad. I family has to pay about $400 every 2 weeks for health care. When they make under 10 dollars a hour. Has a very high turn over which is terriable for the clients. The pay is my only beef working there. If they paid a decent wage they would keep more highly trained staff their instead of hiring any body off the steet. Can wash dishes for about the same money with no responsibilites

So true they like to fire the good staff and keep the stackers around. I once worked for them in one of there houses in Clinton. I also can say that most of the management sucks.And yes you can go back to the and tell them Harry Houghton said that.

Your full of it, you do not receive unemployment compensation after being FIRED. You can not receive it if youve been FIRED.
