You idiot.
You tell him to "get a job", like its that easy.
Why don't you just tell him to win the powerball for christ sakes.
That way he won't need a job at all.

Same thing in 2012. I can't get through to anyone on the system for a simple question about a weekly claim I filed. Tried calling at 8 in the morning and could not get a claims specialist. What a joke. I even tried calling the Madison office as well as the Milwaukee office.

The UI system is absolutely ridiculous! I've been laid off since December. I call all 3 #'s 100 times a day & still cannot get through to anyone. I've been filing complaints everywhere I possibly can because something has to change. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know because this is week 7 now & my claim is still pending!!!

I applied for unemployment benefits in early June. Four weeks later I received a letter stating that my benefits have been approved. It has now been three months and I have not received a check. I call every week and every week they tell me the same thing, "Have patience, you should receive your checks soon".
It is no doubt that these delays are by design. They save thousands and thousands of dollars by forcing people to take any job available (even if it means scrubbing the floors for $7 a hour)due to a complete lack of unemployment insurance checks. Then they release your checks with a smile because they just forced you to get a job out of desperation.. and now they no longer have to pay you.

Call your illustrious Governor Ė ask him about the job(s) he promised. Tell him you canít get unemployment so youíre looking to him for an alternative called work. He said we would get jobs, so time to follow through!

Bob, If you are unemployed why wouldn't you take ANY job? If you only find part time work then work 2 jobs! I, and many others, have done it. I am sure there are many people working 2 jobs to make ends meet. Why should any able bodied person be paid to do nothing?
I see tons of "help wanted" ads in the newspaper or go down to Palermo's pizza they are looking to replace a couple hundred workers who didn't know how well off they were.

I am also calling our State senator and I hope you all do too! No complaint dept anywhere to be found- our government is pathetic. yes, I agree that our government is just collecting interest on OUR friggin money and letting us fend for ourselves. My credit sucks because of this and I'm pissed. Yet, they have no problem getting my IRS bill to me on time. Look at what we are becoming, yet our government has plenty of funds to pay for porch monkeys electric bills, cell phones, food stamps, and they dont see a delay and theyve probably never workd a day in thier life. But for the hard working Americans - screw them? I've lost faith a long time ago and it's getting worse

Well here is what you need to do. . . go up the street and bum rides from a whitey person and while hitching with him ask him if he has any money for yo to feed yuh kid. Tell m ya on the way to the mailbox to see if yo got any checks as you lookn for any checks someone else mightov left laying around so yo can create money. Askm for any money so yo can ride the bus. After a while just ask him to let you off at the next bus stop. thank him and tell him yo need to catch the next bus.

Both my Brother in law and Husband have not seen a check in weeks.
This is due to a work search mistake by unemployment. Unfortunately nobody has been able to get thru to clear up their mistake. We are wondering how many other people have been affected by this work search fiasco!
I too am having a issue with this and cannot get through to clear it up. I have been calling nonstop for 2 almost 3 weeks and haven't been able to get a live person!

This is the new American way according to the Democrats. Now stay home and enjoy your welfare - you no longer have to work according to Emperor Barachius Maximus Obamamus. The emperor has set congress and the constitution aside. He states, "I no longer need them" Perhaps he will even burn the Reichstag down."
