This state bites!!!! I'm not eligible because I didn't work for someone last year. They want you to have a minimum of 500 hours, but their quarterly system is kinda wacked. I won't be eligible until October of this year. I can't be unemployed that long!!!!! They take like all of last year and the first 3 months of this year to figure benefits, and of course, since I was self-employed for all of last year, I don't qualify. Even though I pay the damn taxes. (Well, that's another story) but still!!! (and oh yeah, just got off the phone with a guy from the Employment Department, he called about 3 minutes after I submitted my claim).

Definitely need to hit the temp agencies now. Doug was right, not worth it to apply for UI.
