Do you think unemployment is PA?

I don't believe it is. PPL has to pay taxes on it and the employer is the one that pays into it
I heard from some ppl that they beleive it is a handout so it is consider it is PA.

  • No in no way is it. However, I think what some people are looking at is the fact that there are literally thousands of people right now who have been on unemployment for several years. That's far too much. There are jobs out there. Sure, you may have to move to find them, but they are out there!

  • i've never heard of unemployment for several years. here in my state, you can only receive it for 2 years and you have to be actively seeking work. the unemployment office will even help you find a job if you aren't having any luck. and believe me, the allottment isn't much.

  • Off subject but money is taken out our check for PA so if we find ourselves needing it, we shouldn't be made to feel so ashamed.

  • No, unemployement is NOT PA- You & your employer pay into it, each pay schedule -it's to protect you if you loose a job!

  • I don't consider it PA at all. Unemployment is a) funded by employers, not the government, and b) only given to those who have lost their job through no fault of their own. It's designed to help workers make ends meet until they get another job, they also provide assistance in finding a job.
