If you work your butt off, only to lose your job and collect unemployment, how is that seen as a “handout”?

Especially by conservatives whom don’t have a *clue* as to what unemployment benefits are, how they are structured, and what it means to the jobless worker who is out of work and having to find another job?

Do they even know what a ‘safety net’ really means?

Will my Unemployment benefits continue if I find a job and then quit that job within a month?

I’m in between jobs right now because of lay off and qualified to receive unemployment check. I will not get the benefit until four weeks from now? If I find a retail job and quit after a month will I continue to receive an unemployment check? I would ask the agency but they are closed right now. I wonder if someone on Answers had experienced unemployment who could help me.

in what cases can you get fired for a job and still collect unemployment?

I hate my job and I really want to quit but my friend said to get fired and then I can collect unemployment if I can’t find a job right away. is this true? i thought you had to be laid off or something to collect.
first of all i did not say this is what i was going to do i was just asking because i’ve never tried to collect unemployment before. i am looking for another job so this might not even be an issue. thanks you…

I am being laid off and I plan on collecting unemployment. Until I find a new job can I freelance?

I live in Indiana and I am being laid off from a full time position so I will be eligible for unemployment. Until I find a new full-time job, can I look for freelance work? I understand I have to report all work/wages I would earn from freelancing (and it would most likely be deducted from my unemployment benefits) but is it okay to freelance since in essence I would be self employed?

I graduated in June but have been unable to find a job. Do I qualify for unemployment benefits. I worked last summer (Jul-Sep 2007) and so earned enough to qualify for unemployment benefit. While I quit that job voluntarily, I am currently looking for a job and unable to find one.
