Will Work For Food – Laid Off Government Worker

With the Federal Government now shut down…. I wonder how many Federal workers will be filing for unemployment tomorrow?

Closed
The sad thing about unemployment… is you don’t get paid for the first week you are on it as that is called a “waiting period”.  During this waiting period… folks are required to fill out all sorts of paperwork, attend a class, look for at least three jobs…. etc.

Well crap by the end of the one week waiting period… my guess is we will be back to work.

The dilemma? Do I go down there and spend half a day just waiting in lines and then spend 20 + hours of my time this week doing mandated unemployment stuff just to possibly get called back to work the next week or possibly even the next day?

Well I think I’ll hold off for a while and hopefully I will get back to work soon enough.  The sad thing for me… is both my wife and I are now effectively laid off!
