No it is not. Employers pay unemployment tax based on compensation paid to employees. It is paid by the employer on a specified amount of the earnings of each employee. So basically employers pay this tax for their employees. If you do not work for a company that pays that tax based on what they pay you, then you do not get unemployment. Those receiving unemployment even pay taxes on what they receive obviously those receiving public assistance do not. "Public assistance" is financed by the public. Unemployment is paid for by employers.

Is unemployment public assistance?
Well the public is being assisted in paying their bill while employees so hmm...sounds like "public assistance" to me. What would you say is the difference between this and other forms of public assistance? Unemployment insurance is partially funded by employers but it is also government funded so how is it not government public assistance?
