> most people who lose their jobs don't get unemployment

Do you have *any* evidence of this?

> we don't count all unemployed people in our unemployment statistics

This is definitely wrong. Do you know there are several unemployment statistics?

I know I’m not most people, but I’ve never gotten unemployment, even when the pandemic shut down my job.

The plural of anecdote is not data ... but I'd like to understand your situation, if you don't mind:

  1. What state were you in?
  2. Did you apply for unemployment?
  3. Were you denied it?

Can you phrase that in a less insufferable way?

  1. That was in Illinois.
  2. Yes. I’ve also applied in Ohio and California when I lived in those states.
  3. Yes. I was also denied disability in Ohio even with a medically valid request.

Scope out my post history if you want to see a tragedy play out in real-time.

I've been trying to get disability with a medically valid request in Arkansas for about a decade now. I know that feel, bro

I call everyone "bro" or "dude." I'm weird and dumb and kinda high atm. Sorry if I offended! It's a relic of my mmo-gaming past.
