Great read. Honestly, unemployment sounds great on paper, but even that was hard to get. I was one of those students who kept applying for unemployment every week just to receive nothing. My other friends were receiving $30 to $55 from unemployment every week. It wasn't until 2020 ( I'm very new in the job market) that I saw the importance of being part of a union and having someone to fight for you when employers and social services fail you.
