Striking Hotel Workers Eligible for Unemployment

"More than 4,000 union hotel workers locked out of their jobs in San Francisco got a significant psychological and financial boost Thursday when the state concluded that they are eligible for unemployment insurance."

Are you kidding me?

These hotel workers, who voluntarily are striking, get to receive the same benefits I got when I lost my job, involuntarily.

So that means you can voluntarily go on strike and still collect unemployment. With that logic, when I quit, I should be able to receive unemployment. You choose to strike, you choose the consequences.

I thought the reason why unemployment was setup was in case you lost your job you'd have some kind of income until you could get a new job.

So, in California, if you choose to walk off the job (because you don't like it), voluntarily, you're eligible. Not a bad state we live in.

Oh Good Grief!
