Have they changed the rules for unemployment benefits again?
I recall that way back when Jesus was in Pampers, you were required to get two applications a week (or so)to prove that you were actively seeking work.
Remember that great idea? ACTUALLY TRYING TO FIND WORK?
This seemed to go away for a LONG time, and now suddenly we have people coming into the office FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE of filing out an application so they can continue to get benefits.
Why does this piss me off?
A. I have to get my ass out of bed every morning at 6 am while they stroll into the office around 1ish asking for an application so they can continue to sit home and collect $.
B. It's a freaking waste of OUR manpower and time. We have our interviewer on staff, spending time with these people, when it's apparent from the beginning, they have ZERO INTEREST in getting a job with our company. Why should we waste money having them get drug tested, TB tested or do a criminal background? Most of them don't even have any experience in our field, which would disqualify them automatically.
C.But what REALLY pisses me off is when people say, "Are there any hours?" and I say, "Yes," and they'll blatantly say, "I'll just put down 'there isn't any work available'." These people piss me off every bit as much as the people we have already hired who now say, "Don't give me any more hours, it's messing up my unemployment." Well EXCUSE US. We thought you WANTED a job, not a fucking handout.
