 That's okay. They will have to pay unemployment. In my state they can fire you for any reason they want but one has to do something really bad to not get unemployment

11. This was a crap job too.
 They weren't treating me very good in the 1st place. They know I'm undergoing treatment for Hep C and that I cannot possibly function that same as when I was healthy. I think this was a excuse for getting rid of me.

Cobalt Violet may be in for a little suprise because most states also give an employer an out in paying unemployment if the employee violated some specific company policy.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Sounds like it was a well-founded action, then.  Hope it was from Wal-Mart!

Something tells me 'bad attitude' is actually code word for their bosses for calls in a lot, comes in late, and has constant BDS while taking care of customers, even after being told to leave political beliefs at home.

I'm guessing that means working about 3/4 of your time and making the rest of the team figure out how to compensate to get the job done.

Shit like this is why if the shit hits the fan the leftists will be the first to go.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

My employer is funny like that too. I not only have to show up but, I have to work when I'm on the clock.  :whatever: :-)

You get fired in Georgia, good luck on unemployment. That's for people laid off. Here, if you're fired, you're ****ed. Here's a suggestion, be a better f'n employee next time. It's YOU that wants the f'n job to begin with.

"Bad attitude" could mean many things. From sassing off to the person's bosses, to just being lackadaisical on the job.... I'd like to know what the DUmmy did for a living though.

I got fired for a "bad attitude" I called my boss a "****in used car salesman" and periodically told him to "go **** yourself"

I didn't like that he wanted me to lie to the customers.

I do believe it's the same in Michigan. You get fired, you're SOL.
Come to think of it, unions do create jobs. Companies have to hire two workers to do the work of one.

How long ago? That was a stupid, stupid move.  You now can't get a reference and there will be a hole in your resume. And I have learned ALL business communities are small.

If you want to keep your integrity, quit if your boss is the top of the chain, or go over his head and report what immirall/illegal acts he is doing.  Even if you don't keep your job you have a decent reference.

A little pop off like that can follow you for a long, long time.

Still an incredibly bad idea that I suggest you do not repeat, no matter how tempting.

If she got fired for being sick, as she says, then that's wrong. But if she got fired for being lazy, BDS and crazy political talk all the freaking time, then that's what you get.

Small businesses can't afford to carry sick people, nor is paid sick leave a mandatory benefit.
