if you’re strapped for cash (bills, changes in life, etc), what would you do?
Unemployment checks generally match 80% of your previous pay check and this way it gives you time to focus on other priorities (i.e. school). Lots of free time.
Or stick it out and live off of $8+ / hour? Average 15-20 hours per week, so a 4 week month about 480-ish, complete with odd hours, stress, bullshit retail jobs, seeing family less, etc.
So Californians, and other US folk, which one would you pick?
