No, I've never had 2 hours of mandatory breaks. Actually, my union fallows federal guid lines in that respect. Just like you." Try working for an event production company assembling training facilites"? Say What? I build skyscrapers! As for the guy that wouldn't help you. That is BS. As for you running to the boss like a little kid. That is also BS. Getting the crew kicked off the job because your feelings were hurt. More BS! Becouse one man hurt your tinder feelings, 9 years ago, you hate all unions. Thats just sad. This thred was started for union members to discuss there prefison. Not defend it. If you wan't to go around poking bears with sticks, your going to wake one !

OZ,


The answer is, it depends. The state of Indiana is an "employment-at-will" state. This means they can fire you for anything. However, If they fire you for a reason such as, wearing a green shirt, the state will hold a hearing, and determine whether the state will pay it, or the company. Now, if they fire you for say, habitually violating safety rules, and write you up 3 times, and fire you on the fourth, then more than likely the state will pay it.


If the hearing is judged that the company should pay, the employers % goes up. In this way, it keeps small businesses honest. I have worked for some large companies however, that didn't care how much they spent.


The last company I worked for paid < 1% in unemployment "insurance". Basically they didn't fire people all willy-nilly.


Other companies I have worked for have paid well over 3%.

1% - 3% ?

I said 1.4 times the employee contribution , ie $140%

The federal EI rate is currently 1.88% for employees , I then pay 1.4 times their contribution as the employer

For example , employee makes $1000 / month , their EI portion / deduction is $18.88 , I then have to contribute an additional $26.43
