AsparagusFTW: dickfreckle: The UE max in my state is two-something. Sure, you can pay your internet and/or phone bill, electric, and get SNAP for modest eating. But how in hell are you supposed to pay rent/ mortgage?  Do you know anyone paying $500 for rent?

Mortgage here is $503/all in with insurance/escrow etc. Taxes just went up. 2 months ago it was $460ish. Very deliberate with where I moved for this reason. Not really replicable as home prices in my hood would now push it to like $750-$800.


Do you live in an actual shack in the middle of Alabama? Single wide trailers cost more per month than what you pay.

AllCatsAreBeautiful: Mikey1969: puffy999: Unemployment package will expire before my co-workers and I get our unemployment...

To be fair we've been working now longer than we were laid off.

Yeah, I got employed before I got a penny in unemployment, because my employer gave me a pretty good severance when I got laid off. Unfortunately, I jumped at the first job that came my way, it absolute shiat, and I can't quit if I want unemployment. I'm stuck in this shiat job until I find another, but I'm running out of excuses to duck work for interviews, and there's no way to sneak away during the work day without being noticed.

If you get fired, you still get UI right? I just blankly kept ducking out of work to do video interviews in my car. Eventually, I just resigned on a Friday night and started my new job the next Monday.


I think it depends on what you get fired for. If you take a shiat on the boss' desk, and then piss all over the front door, it's the kind firing you don't get UI for, but I'm not sure if it's just from poor attendance or something. I'm afraid to test it, though. Not the shiatting on the desk part, just the "regular" getting fired.

Can we stipulate that you have to wear a mask in order to receive these funds?

Mikey1969: Yeah, this is what's called "old news". Who didn't know this? It expires at the end of the month, and they're just barely talking about which proposal they might choose. This isn't some kind of stealth operation that nobody saw coming, I'm not sure where the confusion lies here.


It hasn't been Greenlit on the Fark Pol-tab, probably.  Since half the submissions are links to Trump tweets.

This just in : Unemployment is at record levels and the entire US economy is going to collapse in the next few months as evictions soar, the stock market "self-corrects", and 30% of businesses that shut down never re-open.

But wait, something about Goya too.

Absolutely, are you crazy?  They're called "roommates", look into it. Not only does it save huge on rent, it also cuts your bills to a fractions.

When I was recovering financially from a divorce, I shared a 4 bedroom house with five total occupant.  It never once occurred to me that I someone else should sacrifice so I could have my own exterior walls.  I don't know how we got to a place where everyone feels like society owes them their own little castle.  If you can afford your own place, great, if you can't, it's time to compromise a bit.  So you might have to clean up after yourself a little better - boo hoo.

What a very mean thing for the Republicans to do deliberately to harm Donald J Trump's election.
