due to unforseen issues, i am technically unemployed. i will be heading to "work" once a week to follow-up on tccoa sales inquiries.there will be delays in inquiries...i apologize. i will not be collecting a regular paycheck. owner said what ever i sell, i will get paid the profit. so, if cost is $10, and i sell it for $12, he will give me $2. he does have a side company that does inventories, and he will pay me $220/day to do that, but that would be $440/wk, which is far less than what i have been making. don't know anything about unemployment, other than that i pay it out of my check.

Wow, sorry to hear that...

I'd look into the inventory thing, $440 a week is infinitely better than next to nothing a week.

I don't know the rules in MASS but you probably aren't eligible with that earning. However, You should start looking into it though and apply immediately if you are eligible.

yeah, sometimes it's better not to work but to collect unemployment (well, better for you) you can't collect unemployment if you have a job, and sometimes unemployment pays more than a part time, or low paying job does.
