  •  Because their UI premiums go up if a lot (8+ / 0-)

    of the people they lay off later make use of it.

    You'd be stunned how many people don't know they're entitled to it, and take some completely crap job instead of using it.

    That's what employers prefer.

    •  Interesting. Btw, do UI premiums of an individual (0+ / 0-)

      employer go up if their former employees use unemployment? It shouldn't be the case but i don't know much about this system.

      •  Yes. That's because some have very low turnover (1+ / 0-)

        while others have frequent layoffs.

        Since their employees use their benefits more (for example, ski resorts lay off 95% in the spring) they have to pay much higher rates than a more stable employer.
