8. Who gets 40% of their previous pay as unemployment????
California is giving me the maximum amount of $450.00 a week - doesn't even cover my mortgage, far less any health premiums, food, clothes, gas, job hunting expenses, etc etc .
Yes, I have some savings, but I have negative cash flow until I get another job. My obligations are nowhere near as high as some others in my position, I'll survive, AGAIN , as long as I get another job within a year, however I'll have used a lot of retirement savings, AGAIN , and this time I'm only 8 years from retirement.
