    I'm the new victim of the ecomony

    Got canned yesterday due to the company making cutbacks :-( Good news is that I finally get to catch up on my reading (which I have been neglecting) and my writing as well. You gotta find a silver lining when things like this happen. It helps that it was just a job and not a career, but it still sucks major. Wish me luck on the job hunt y'all!

    Very sorry to hear that tech. I'll prolly be joining you in a month or so :frown:. Currently my job cut my hours down to 4 days a week. Next month it will only be 3 days a week. In april we are only scheduled to work 9 days out of the month. I work in the auto industry, so it's really bad.

    You should be able to collect. if not from them, you will get it from your job before that. It doesnt have to be the same job. Beleave me, you can. they want to give you the money.

    And you should collect as soon as you can. In California, I heard EDD is endanger of running out of money. So they might possibly give out IOU's. So don't waste any time applying. Can't hurt... the worst they could say is no... which I highly doubt. Just as fox points out...

    That doesn't help the citizens of NY. Why would they make people wait for 6 months? If someone loses their job they need the money right away. The point is to have assistance while looking for another job. Are you sure on that rule? Or maybe you misunderstood, because in Cali it states you can collect unemployment up to 6 months (a year in some cases).

    Sorry, nijaap! You misunderstood me. Tech didn't know if she could collect unemployment benefits because she was at her job less than a year. I meant to tell her hat in NY, you can collect benefits as long as you were at the job for at least 6 months.....(I am an employer, so I should know!!)
