Unpaid waiting week -- what the f&*#!

For those of you who still have jobs let me know tell you about what you have to look forward to -- an unpaid waiting week. This is what the government calls your first week of unemployment and decides that you don't need to be paid for. Apparently this is my punishment for getting laid off, as if the process of trying to get unemployment in the first place wasn't enough.  I mean, for all they know I could have 10 kids at home living off a bucket of KFC waiting for that check so  I could buy an 8-ball. Luckily, things haven't gotten that bad, yet.

  1. I agree also hahaha. I get 4 weeks off each year and every year I have to reopen another initial claim. Every year I have to serve this waiting week with no money.. Why not just have the first waiting week only?
