I, too, am unemeployed, left my last join voluntarily because, too put it simply, i had something of a mental breakdown, as i did not feel that some people at the workplace (i was working at a nightclub) was not very appreciating me and some others working hard to keep the club running, despite eventual lack of glasses (plastic Glasses, really).
As many understand it, unemployment in the US is something we pay into when we have a job. We put a limited amount of money into an account that we alone can draw out of when we are laid off of our job... Not when we are fired, though. Past Employers ALSO pay into unemployment claims, however it is still a limited fund, and once the money in the account is gone, the time is up.

I am firing somebody today. They are a terrible employee, they are often late and/or absent. They planned on cutting back to part-time, but now they realized that they can make MORE MONEY on unemployment!!
