I asked this question of our staffing agency (Edustaff, in Michigan) and was told that if schools closed again in the fall, that we should start a new unemployment claim. I have no idea how accurate...

What a racket! Two questions: (1) how often do you have to take the courses, and (2) can you take them at community college, or does it have to be at a four year school? Here in Michigan, at our...

It is a no win situation, for sure. If I go back (in Sept. here in Michigan) I risk bringing the bug home to my high risk husband. If I don't go back, I risk losing some or all of my "personal...
