  • Job Loss Insurance

    How much does it cost to purchase such a policy in USA (if available)? Has anyone tried it? What are the most important things to be aware of? How much can one get in benefits?

    I haven't heard of such. Sometimes Un-Employment is reffered to as insurance. That is administered by the state where you worked at through taxes payed by your employer.

      MZ the only unenployment insurance that I am aware of is the one that is run by the states. There are restrictions on this, you must be fired or laid off, quiting a job will disqualify you.

        Hy Happy workers

        The good side of a "Social Democrat" France is that each month on our salary we pay, not a state tax, but a Worker/Boss manned tax which permit us to be paid with 2/3 of our net income revenue during 2 years
        To be clearer, there is a common Boss Workers managed society, which is in charge to manage the money that all of us (boss and workers) give.
        This money is then returned to those who loose their job.

        I'm happy of that because, I'm waiting for my redundancy, which must occurs probably end of may beginnig of June. And at now to get a job for a good skilled worked like me with 20 years of experience and 48 years old, is more than difficult.

          And the good thing about "Communist" Russia was the fact that everyone had a job. Unfortunately if you were a doctor you were almost getting paid what a janitor was. Haha!
          Furthermore, they had calculated that if 25,000 of them died for every one of us, they would finish us first, for they were many and we were but few.

            Sorry Cortez,

            Bad information. This is the situation NOW.
            In time of USSR they were well paid and got lot of consideration.

            Lot of intelectuals/researchers try to go abroad now as they are underpaid or not paid at all since they are under Capitalistics rules. They are free now, that's true, but the price they paid for it is a very high one, believe me.

              Right now in ex-communist Poland unemployment among medical school grads is something like 50%. Many doctors have to take jobs ranging from TV host to cab driver. The fact that their training is so specialized doesn't help them at all.

              Under communism a doctor with a few years of experience could afford a "vila" or a family home with a backyard and a garage, located in some quiet tree-lined alley. This was considered great luxury and there was no question of a janitor ever being able to afford something like that under communism.

                  Wasn't it also so that if you weren't in the right "position", education and party membership-wise, you weren't even allowed to buy a house/car? At least not in the more "privileged" parts of towns?
