    How could I not believe in it? It exists.

    I think the question needs re phrasing. Or editing would not post not enough letters so ignore the rest of this drivel he he

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean - do you have some doubts that unemployment exists? Unemployment certainly exists. From next week, this will be the second time I've been made redundant from a company within the last 5 years and I will be 'unemployed'.

    I am taking a leap and suggest that you are referring to unemployment compensation. And the answer is "yes." Most people who have a problem with it think of it as a welfare-type scenario.  If that were the case, my answer might be different.  Unemployment Compensation is, and always has been, an insurance fund.  One that we all pay into each and every paycheck, so that we can have a safety net in case the worse happens.  Anyone who has had to go on it can tell you - you don't get any more than you put in.  And you have to jump through a number of hoops to do that.

    Yes, I do. However, I also believe in making opportunities come to me. Before I was a full time writer, I was definitely struggling. Then I decided to invest some time working on my two businesses! Not only did I make money, but I saw just how many opportunities are out there, and people just need to hear about them.
    If you are unemployed, and want a job, I can help you get one..
    I work from home, and I do make my own hours!

    Unemployment is a crucial necessity today. With companies laying off continually and downsizing. If Unemployment didn't exist, I would have been wiped out twice. I feel sorry for the self-employed and others that don't get unemployment. It must be devestating.
