Quiting because of a reduction in hours can be a tough sell in some states and in my state AZ, it's not good cause at all.

You have to turn it into something else. When your hours are cut, quite often you lose your benefits, and that translates to a reduction in compensation that is good cause. Also, when you're working very short hours, your transportation expenses can be such a disportionate amount of your earnings that you can establish good cause. If the reduction in hours causes you to give up your residence to move some place else that you can afford and it's far enough away from your job, that can be made into good cause.

I just suggest that you make the reduction hours the last reason for quitting rather than the first. In prior thread, you said your health insurance was worth $12,000/year. The risk of losing that vs. the $1080 you were getting in salary means that what the school did to you was 12000/13080 = 91.7% reduction in salary. You only need a 20% reduction in salary to be a good cause quit.

Now, they will ask you what you did to adjust your grievance, and you can say, "when i asked why my health insurance was cut, they told me I could only get it back was to retire. Therefore, to keep a benefit I had always had, I had to quit."

Don't worry about CA. If you're denied initially because of a lazy examiner, you will most likely win on appeal.

True. Despite the wonderful numbers being touted by Washington, the actual factual unemployment rate here in CA is above 14% still. As such they are absolutely inundated at the moment.
