There is nothing to turn in. They are completely legitimately claiming unemployment. The companies lay off workers in blocks during slower times, so that the workers collect unemployment and when things pick up, they take them right back. Saves the company a heap of money. Blame the system.

Looks like we wasted over 3 billion dollars on fraudulent unemployment benefits in 2011.

Unemployment insurance fraud occurs when an ineligible individual collects benefits after intentionally misreporting his or her eligibility. Recent headlines have brought attention to extreme forms of fraud, such as the collection of unemployment benefits by prisoners. The dominant form of unemployment insurance fraud, however, is what's called concealed earnings fraud. This fraud occurs when individuals collect unemployment benefits while they are employed and are earning wages. The overpayments due to concealed earnings accounted for almost $2.2 billion in 2011, two-thirds of the total overpayments due to all categories of fraud. [...]

Among those committing concealed earnings fraud, 18,000 (roughly 20 percent) earned less than $300 per week, and 12,000 (14 percent) earned more than $900 per week.
No reason to try to change things though, right?

I don't think I saw anyone in this thread legitimately claimed that nothing needed to be fixed.


Again, master of addressing points that no one has made.


I, for one, would like to see some changes made to UE insurance. Coming up with methods to reduce fraud would obviously be on that list.

So true. Greed & stupidity seem to go hand & hand. It's not like he was making $30,000 a year either & below or at the poverty line.

Dumbass.
