I just got a letter in the mail saying they were cutting my unemployment from $398 to $172 a week. This is so not fair. The reason it was so high was because of the stock money I got from Merck. The unemployment people didn’t think that should be included in my total income, even though Merck reported it as income. I would not be so upset except that I know other people from Merck who got the maximum rate of unemployment based on the stock money with no questions asked. Kinda funny that they’re all males too.
