I didn't see the unemployment as something I was scamming from the Government but something I was due after having worked there all those years and then at the point I was starting to fall apart they laid me off. I feel like I had been cast off like an old worn out shoe after it was no longer useful.

I don't know about the state you might be in, but in California there is no payroll deduction to go towards unemployment. That fund is sourced through taxing your employers. Yes, they pay it for you, so I am not sure how one acquires and entitlement or something you are due when you made no contribution towards it.

Thank your employers who get taxed just have you on board and taxed some more as more of you take unemployment decreasing the fund.
