SO I am freaking out. I just put down the deposite for our wedding venue last month. And we knew going in money would be super tight with the location we picked. Neither of our families have much money so we are paying for the wedding ourselves. I just checked my email this evening and it seems I am getting laid off! It gets worst, My boss said that she can’t afford to pay anymore on her unemploymet insurance so she want’s to offer me 3 hours a week so thta I can not draw unemployment. I am freaking out. I don’t know what I am going to do!

Three hours a week and you can still get unemployment, they just deduct what you’ve been paid from the unemployment. File for unemployment first thing Tuesday or tonight if you have time. Whatever her financial issue is isn’t your issue, that’s between her and the unemployment people. Sorry lady, that sucks.

Absolutely positively file for unemployment. You deserve that money. Also, most states unemployment offices have resources to help you spruce up your resume and find a new job. I’m so sorry this happened to you.

I am from the bay area as well. File anyways. ASAP. You should still be elgible for benefits, even if you only work 3 hours a week. I don’t think unemployment insurance is optional. Ask a unemployment rep about the situation.
