• I've never known unemployment to pay more than my job. Aside from that I have only ever been fired from one job in my life and I don't like it. I'd much rather quit than be fired! And I have on many occasions. I've even walked out and been taken back. Other than the Navy I've never really had a great job, though. So it would depend on the job, but I would be upset if an employer were dissatisfied with my performance when I was trying to do a good job and I usually do. But then if I really suck at the job it would be better for me to move on. There are plenty of other things at which I'm good.

      It's an old story: but for a few months last year, minimum wage workers would have made more on unemployment than they would have made working full time at their former jobs. I personally know a few people in Vermont who were devastated to lose their jobs due to covid restrictions, only to find out that they'd be making significantly more income on unemployment.

In the Navy, come on, protect the motherland. In the Navy, come on and join your fellow, man. In the Navy, come on, people, and make a stand. In the Navy, in the Navy."

      I have been laid off before. I've collected unemployment a few times. But usually I had to get a job even if it was a crappy one. But at least I could always find a job and keep it as long as I wanted most of the time. I can almost always get a job in fast food. Once I did take a job that paid less than what I was drawing on unemployment and now I remember being fired from a second job!
