That's still pretty low. They excavated the road to achieve that. I have a 12'8" near me that gets hit several times a year including this past Thursday. Good size piece of sheet metal on the side of the road Friday morning.
It's not just succes that's penalized. 3 years ago I was laid off after 24 years at the same company. I was far from a high paid employee but would have qualified for a little over $600 a week in unemployment insurance. That is not what I received. The amount you collect is calculated on a 12 month average but not the last 12 months you wotked. They go back 6 month and calculate the 12 months from there.
I commited the sin of being on private disability for 4 of those 12 months which does not count towards the calculations for eligibility.
Because my private insurance didn't pay the $8 a week state unimployment tax (approx) during my disability it cist me $300 a week in benifits when I needed to collect. I appealed the award and was denied. No not fair at all but life is not fair.
Can't wait for my stimulas checks.
