No unemployment system was built to take on this many claims.
But farking seriously, the claims line is only open from 8AM to noon?

On top of that, the State has already run out of money and has had to borrow from the federal government.

the federal government has been taking from them for years to fund red states, so it's only fair.

I don't know. Things are crazy right now and a friend of mine got her UI in a couple of weeks. Yeah it was about a week later than expected but it went through pretty quick all things considered.

In fact right now they are automatically doing the approvals. You don't need to go online or call them anymore.

Can't link from my mobile, but the LA Times just ran an article about California paying the feds back for a $1.4 billion loan for unemployment.

The solution is simple:
Hire them for a basketball porno.

Pay a wage to have them do socially distant....um something.
Perhaps involve basketball nets?

They had a surplus before covid, and many red states had a deficit BEFORE covid hit.

So what is you point exactly?

Almost every state will be in trouble this year.

I find it really amusing to imagine a porno directory having a bunch of assistants carry a naked man, crowd-surfing style, to reposition him, all to keep the balls in the air.

No the stock market is not up. Don't be dumb. It's down about 20% from it highs right before the virus.

This gargantuan influx of applicants has merely shined a really bright light on a system that was already not working and fraught with problems.  The vast majority of people I know who've had to deal with unemployment have not had good experiences with them.  The only thing that's different now is that our society finally cares because it's affecting them, the innocent masses, rather than the people who, you know, deservedto suffer under unemployment.  I mean, if you made it fun, then everyone would do it, right?

You can't socially engineer for every possible eventuality. One way to not go broke it to work for a living - at least that's the conservative approach to developing sustainable growth potential. Unfortunately, and we see this time and time again with Democrats and liberals ... they just move people around to keep the balls in the air. I think it's mostly a education issue. Liberals and Democrats very rarely exhibit original thoughts or ideas, like "cows don't milk themselves", and that's because they are generally terrible students - unteachable really. Occasionally one will shine, odds being odds, but it's usually not for anything useful.

I guess you missed the millions of layoffs that occurred a few weeks ago, after the massive shutdowns due to the pandemic. Probably a stroke due to the narrowed arteries in your brain.

My favorite part is thinking Democrats are not good at education. Like colleges are huge Republicans institutions.

That is one of the most amusing parts of it.

Gyrfalcon: Are there ANY states with decent unemployment agencies?


No.  This is by design.  Being unemployed is still seen as shameful, because then you're being lazy and leeching off the system; therefore, we have to make collecting unemployment difficult and keep unemployment itself painful and embarrassing enough that people will be clambering to get back to work.
