I knew someone will end up criticizing me.
So I decided to respond back.
The requirements to get unemployment is, you have to look for a job and prove it. So when I collect unemployment, I have to continue looking for a job. The unemployment will only last for 6 months only. (at least in California)
They are very strict when you collect unemployment. They do that to make sure no one try to take advantage of it.
I have some money saved up just in case they want to dispute something and if there's a delay in the unemployment check.
As for your taxes, if you don't get yourself fired, the company I used to work for have to put in a certain percentage into your unemployment check. I am not sure how much it is.
Before I got the job where I am at, it took me almost a year before I got a "career job". So it's not easy to get a job.
If you find it easy to get a job than all powers to you. Some people are incapable to get a job as easy as you can.
