Yea this guy is a jerk. I hope he apologized to her for labeling her as lazy, asked for her resume and offered to help her find a job.

No, itis the exact same as regular benefits, as long as the job pays as much.

Must I take any job while filing for EB?
Suitable work for EB claimants whose prospects are 'not good' is defined as any work you are capable of performing if:
1) the gross weekly pay exceeds your weekly benefit amount;
2) the pay is equal to the Federal and State minimum wage of $7.25 per hour and;
3) the offer is in writing and listed with the State employment service.

This money was already paid by NCers, and is already appropriated for this task. By denying it all he is doing is letting other states have the money NCers have put into the federal government when we need it.

Yeah, really! And let's not forget to mention that those NC taxpayers he mentions does include those unemployed folks' money - or did before you guys cut off the benefits. We had the usual 5% withheld every week from ours. Doesn't that "technically" make it our tax money going to re-fund EB as well?

Well to be honest the average unemployed does not pay much in federal taxes. The average income from UI is 300 per week, so 15,600. The first 10,000 is exempt from federal taxes, so your taxable income from it is only 5600. So yea, some, but not much.

Not necessarily. This was not an employment offer- is was a "day labor" offer.
