Quoting Destiel:" <for me to be a bit angry that my friend whose husband is unemployed and she works part time in the same job as me. She ends up bringing in more per month in welfare than SO and I combined. I know its stupid for me to be upset, but when you also take in that shes in government housing and doesnt pay for child care ... she actually has over $1000 more a month than me."
Unemployment is not welfare. It is earned income to a degree. I can see why you would be jealous or upset. My husband used to collect unemployment 3-6 months a year with the USFS because he would get laid off. BUT he would go back during fire season. Well, that was when we were transferred up here. In AZ it was for like 3-4 weeks. Regardless, employers pay into it to protect their employees in these situations and to keep them off welfare programs while they search for other employment or await for their appointment to restart.
I think you should focus more on your life and stay out of others financial business. Don't worry so much about what is going on in anothers life. You don't know if they are telling 100% the truth to start with and second, all it does is create unnecessary issues in your life.
