"The unemployment rate can be as much as 100% off at times.
"For example, have you ever noticed how many jobs are 3 months or
"That's because you can't get unemployment if you don't work at least 2
"quarters, and they don't have to pay for it.
"I'm in that boat... I can't get unemployment because my last two jobs
"were only 3 months.
over the last ten years, most of my jobs were 3 months, and i got
unemployment after all of them. the rule [in this state, anyway] is:
you have to work -in- two quarters. and it doesn't have to be all one
job. luckily, none of mine coincided exactly with a quarter anyway.
and because of a quirk in the rules, if my last job had been shifted
just ten days laters - same duration - i would've qualified for 50%+
more in unemp.
