Unemployment

I heard that there were a couple of aide positions posted at a nearby district, so I looked.

They apparently are having trouble filling cafeteria positions as well because one of the "benefits" to working in their cafeterias is that you can collect unemployment during the summer.

I wonder how the unemployment people would feel about this?

Back in the day, I worked 7 years in a tourist town that shut down in the "off-season" from early November through late April.

If we could get a letter of reassurance from our employer that we would be rehired that following April, we could draw unemployment from November through April without going out on the usually-required job search. My employer was like "Hey, I paid that money in so you might as well benefit from it."

I am thinking this is much the same scenario.

Reasonable assurance of emp = no unemployment

I think the states may vary, but in California, if you work for a school AND you receive a "reasonable assurance of work" letter from the district, that equals no summer unemployment pay. The districts issue that letter for that very reason. Otherwise, subs, ft teachers, and other staff would all be eligible for unemployment pay during summer break.

Honestly, I do t know how it all works but I guess it is technically a seasonal job. You do go without pay, and there’s no guarantee you will have it again...our cafe ladies get minimum wage anyway, and a great many of them are retired, have second jobs, or are on food support programs...

I guess I’d be ok with them drawing unemployment temporarily if they needed it.

My district

in Nevada also issues a Reasonable Assurance (of future employment) Letter to subs and perhaps others?before the summer to avoid having unemployment insurance issues. I hope the aides check on their state's requirement before depending on that for summer income.

My district also closes down for three weeks over Christmas and two weeks in the spring which pretty much eliminates a January pay check for subs and slim pickings for either April or May pay checks. I'm not sure what that does for others who are not on salary.

Is there any wonder there is a sub shortage here?
