  •  I am intrigued to discover... (5+ / 0-)

    ...that while I am on unemployment, my senator (not for long!) says that I can kick back and enjoy the $25k per year (caps at $470 or so per week, pretax, based on half your original income) that NH unemployment caps out at.  This despite that in order to qualify, people in NH must submit three job search activities per week, fully documented, or you don't collect for that week!

    I can feel even more fortunate that I was forced to Massachusetts to find work in my field, and so I'm collecting from that state instead.

    Certainly I don't feel like I can just enjoy this little 'vacation' the economy has thrown my way.  Fortunately I'm not near the expiration of my benefits, but it's only a matter of time.

    The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die. - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy
