I think that it would be impossible for six Moderators to delete posts then insert commentary on why the posts were deleted there are just way to many posts coming in for them to delete posts that way it would be very time-consuming even if there was 20 moderators.

It is hard to believe that people are dumb enough to break the law and post it online for all to see.

Harry, he is not talking about approving each post, he is talking about when a mod does see a post they think is wrong they could edit and leave a reason instead of just deleting, the only added work is some typing.

For a mod to edit a post is as easy as you editing your own post.

Exactly, instead of just being gone the post would say "Deleted - Political"

He took advantage of the leverage he had. Now he is mad because he doesn't have the leverage anymore. You twisted their arm and now they fought back. Wages are a funny thing, everyone wants to make as much as they can buy there is a point when you might be considered over paid and expendable. You played hard ball and they kicked you in them. And that's part of the game it's the welfare and the cash job and how proud you came off about it. That's the reason for the negativity from the forum. Try being humble just a little.

Damn 450 sounds good,here in florida max is 275 a week.Same as the last time I was laid off in 1990.
I think florida is going to lose alot of good electricians due to the wages here. They have dropped like a rock. I'm seeing ads posted offering 12-14 an hour.
Here they just use experienced helpers instead of licenced guys for everything.

Your a piece of crap, if your working drop the unemployment. That's the right thing to do. People like you make blue collar workers look like scum bags. I hope you get caught because when your in prison you'll figure out who is looking after who.

Hey.. To everyone calling him a scumbag.. What about his boss paying him cash? I guess that doesn't count.

Like all of you are saints and haven't written off a family dinner as a business expense.

And personally I think his boss was a jerk for letting him pass of on a job where he knew he would be laying him off soon.

According to the OP avatar, it looks like he's cheating his fellow union brothers and sisters as well.

No one said his boss was right for doing that but the OPs actions are his own.

He came here bitching how hard it is to break the law. He got what he should have. I also think the OP is just trolling anyway.

I have not and that is not even close to double dipping on UE bennies

The boss could be a real POS but that still has nothing to do with the OP breaking the law

Same here in SC. $275 is the very MOST anyone can collect. That includes people making 6 digit salaries when they get the ax.
Collecting unemployment benefits is so low, you are eligible for food assistance the minute you are laid off. This is if you are the sole money maker in your household. You will get enough to be considered below the poverty level. Thus food assistance.
