My Wife and I Tried Something New During My Unemployment

There's a lot of uncertainty in being #unemployed, specifically as the breadwinner. However, I have never had this much time off of work in my life. To help us cope and have fun, my wife and I started a YouTube channel where we share about our life in quarantine together. It's been a fun and crazy adventure. Our channel is Andrew and Sarabeth Toy if you want to check us out. Here's a link to our latest video: https://youtu.be/e9hcvqitHK0

Sill trying to get used to spending all this time at home. the daily routine I created for myself at the start of the pandemic 'stay at home' restrictions are getting stale. Still not at full cabin fever mode yet but starting to feel the walls closing in on me, haha.

How are you folks doing? Any news about the city re-opening? Our governor issues a 4 phase approach for re-opening the states economy. Sounds exciting but I'm still concerned about rushing into normality without a vaccine.

Hope you and Sarabeth are doing well.

Spring season is in the air so that means Summertime is just around the corner. Woohooo!

Why I love working at Mailing'sDirect😁

Well, we all have our differences at a work place or we. get were we just don't want the job anymore or tired of the situations we go through. I learned that this place was a work hard and learn to become family then just co workers. I had never felt closer then the people who I have worked with since the Coronavirus had laid us down. We have went through bad and good together and I know that God will bring us with growth into this business when we come back and the 2mangers are the amazing guy's who helped us to learn what we had to do and took us in like family. I say God bless and we love everyone at Mailing'sDirect and pray that the business will come to fulfillment with success after this surpasse.

Lost a job and want to share your story?

I work with the Jobcase public relations team and we have a reporter from CNBC doing a story around workers who've lost a job in the midst of coronavirus. CNBC would love to hear from the Jobcase community, and it's a great potential opportunity to share your story, advocate for workers like yourself and boost your work profile!

This would likely be a minimal time investment--perhaps a 15-minute call with CNBC, or whatever you can offer. If interested I'd like to know the following--and we have a 5PM ET deadline (Monday, March 16).

  • What kind of work were you doing?
  • What kind of assistance is your former employer offering?
  • Will you be filing for unemployment benefits, and how do you find it navigating that process?

Responding to me does not guarantee you'd be included, and we will not share your responses or information without your permission.

Today my job just announced furlough. It's a restaurant in DTLA that I've been working at for 4 years.They emailed us that they were going to help us by compensating us all our PTO hours into our next check. The whole issue with that is, for some reason the company took away all our PTO hours at the beginning of this year. All we have are sick hours, but the company isn't even allowing us to use the sick hours either. Basically it is impossible to use our PTO since they took that away and our sick hours are restricted to use. So all workers, including myself, will be recieving no compensation or help. We all though we were going to be taken care of but they basically lied to us. I notified corporate about the error in this "compensation " they speak of but I am still waiting. I hope the word gets out there of how they are treating hard working people. We're trying to be strong but it's really hard right now.

Any interest in helping bring a story out into the public involving the wrongful termination and slander of an employee and the company’s attempt to cover it up involving corruption within the District Attorneys office, local police department, and a local lawyer? This person has been fighting a corrupt local system for 3 1/2 years including an 11-1 mistrial in his favor of not guilty near the end of the 3rd year . The state is objecting to the motion to dismiss and a retrial date is pending

Fed up

So after being unemployed for 2 months and reaching out to numerous recruiters, blasting out applications to everyone, and creating tailored resumes for every job I've applied to only to hear a no, I've decide that enough is enough and I'm going to have to blaze my own path. I was looking for a job in finance just to get something but wanted to transition into technology. Since there is no one that to provide any useable advice or wants you to pay them to be a mentor/career advice giver, I've given up going those normal routes. I'm going to continue to search for a job on my own, but I'm not going to depend on anyone helping me. While I'm doing that, I'm in the process of starting to learn what tech companies/start ups are looking for, starting with learning python. It will not be an easy road, but it beats sitting at home and miserable and not doing anything about the problem. You cannot depend on any of these job sites to really help you (not even LinkedIn) unless you want to pay loads of money for nothing. The other thing I see is a lot of these so called recruiters taking advantage of people in desperate situations during this time and either taking their money or offering jobs that will end up leaving them stuck or skillless. I see the value of having a head hunter, but in a pandemic, that seems like waste.

All this to say that I am blazing my own path. I have the intelligence and drive to learn what I need to learn and figure out what I need to learn. If anyone would like to help or provide any useful advice, I'm open to it. I'll even share my resume as I do still need to make a living. But for now, I've given up following the traditional "listicle" advice that's on every job site or search result on Google. It is time I do something about my situation even during a pandemic/race war. As an African American male, I have never been given any opportunity, despite having a bachelors degree in economics and on the path to finishing a master. I have had to fight for every opportunity when I was employed in finance. So why should I expect it to stop now? #unemployed #jobsearch #motivation #coronavirus #mentor #networking #finance #technology #workfromhome #unemployment

Eligibility requirements question

My child's school closed due to covid 19, which caused attendance issues and I was fired from my staffing agency job. Does the work search requirement being waived save me from the requirements of followup and job search thru the agency to qualify for unemployment benefits? I didn't realize you have to contact them within 24 hrs and then wait three days to file. Does this still apply due to work search requirements being waived? Thanks #help #eligibility #unemployed #momlife #thestruggleisreal #coronavirus #unemployment

The aftermath of COVID: What worries you?

Around the world, governments are beginning to explore ways to safely re-open the economy. As a result, people are preparing to head back to work.

As we start to take steps towards bringing normalcy back to our lives post-Coronavirus, what is concerning YOU as you either A) enter back into the workforce or B) resume your job search?

Yes, go online and file. Watch YouTube videos that help you through the process. Please note* Don't accept the first denial. Do all you can to talk to someone who knows what they are talking about. Ask for supervisory staff. There are a lot of new hires manning phone who will tell you wrong info. You may need to mail in forms, but instead FAX forms in...Do it quickly. Ask for direct phone lines or extension to who you are working with

The UI office may even make you jump hoops and confuse you so you can delay getting approved.

Once approved you will have waiting week (no pay)...but also submit weekly report even if denied...then fight for retro pay. They will so things like tell you that you will just have to restart claim...and cause you to miss out on all the weeks of initial claims. Don't take it lying down. ALSO REALIZE THAT PANDEMIC RELIEF pay PUA application needs to be filled out separately to get the $600 till end of July.
