Tuberville was paid $5 million to quit. Now he says $600 is too much for you. (Kyle Whitmire/al.com)

Instead, he should do it for the experience ó so the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate can understand how unemployment benefits really work. As Tubervilleís appearance on a talk radio show this week revealed, he needs an education.
***
Only when I needed it, did I realize what we seldom talk about ó unemployment benefits are an involuntary insurance program that we pay into through payroll taxes. But like private insurance, when the employees turn into the payee, the other side of the transaction can get awfully stingy.
***
But maybe the most important thing Tuberville would learn if he applied for benefits is that, if you quit your last job because you didnít like it anymore and you couldnít get along with your bosses, you donít get any benefits.
***
And even though his contract wasnít done when he quit, Auburn paid him more than $5 million ó to not work.
***
Also, he still qualified for retirement benefits under the state pension fund. According to his disclosures, he still gets $57,638 a year from the Retirement Systems of Alabama.

1. Do you realize how far $600 goes in Al Abama?

Thatís one element that no one will mention. Poor ass red states are more then raking it in. Aside from massively expensive COL places ...where people live and money is made (taxes paid).... compare $600 in Al Abama vs say Tidewater Virginia or Tulsa or Colorado let alone Alaska or Hawaii
