Unemployment Insurance or

How to ensure a steady supply of homeless

Why do companies force employees to pay unemployment insurance when they know full well that they will never pay it when that employee is fired or gets laid off? If this payment is made because the federal government says so, then that same government should also ensure employees get their money back in the above situations.

Case in point: Subway restaurants on Friday said the manager was doing a great job. At the end of the workday on the following Monday, she was fired. When unemployment was filed, Subway fought it and won. Why? It is half her money!!! Is that why their sandwiches are so cheap? They get the money in their account from all the employees fired. It’s bonus time for the company. Meanwhile the workers have to scramble to find work. That is not easy in this economy, especially with young ones in tow. It may not be illegal, but it is certainly immoral.

Go to Subway. Enjoy your meal. But remember, if you work for them, and companies like them, you will be paying good money for unemployment that you will never see!



  1. Forgive my ignorance but i have heard before that employees dont pay for unemployment but the hiring company does. Can you cite some examples for instance in unemployment being taken from the associates paycheck? There is a radio show in California that i download (robarnieanddawn.com) where they discuss financial issues and the head of the show, Rob has stated repeatedly that it is employers who must pay for unemployment insurance not the workers.

  2. Ron,
    Unemployment insurance is a tax on the business. The employee does not contribute to the fund.It was set up by the Federal government to provide a minimum amount of support when a business had to layoff employees. When an employee is fired it is a whole ‘nother ball game. If the company was at fault the employee receives unemployment checks, if the court rules in the employees favor. If the business had good cause to fire the employee then the employee loses.
