If you refuse to accept a job you consider “beneath” you, you are not truly unemployed and should receive 0 benefits.
I worked for one full year with 0 pay when starting my business. I had hopes, but also a lot of risks and no guarantees.
I am sick of my tax dollars supporting people who believe they should be mid level managers making $80,000 and so refuse to accept a job at Lowe’s paying $12/ hour. If no one will hire you, it means you are unqualified. Do a different job.
