Pa; Prison inmates collect unemployment
Quote:DID YOU KNOW that Philadelphia prison inmates collected unemployment benefits while sitting in their cells?

They did: 1,162 of them got an average of $344 a week for, on average, 18 weeks. That's more than $7 million.

And many of the 25,500 inmates in other county jails in Pennsylvania did the same.

We're talking cash for cons - tens of millions of tax dollars paid by employers and employees fraudulently scammed by incarcerated crooks.

Makes you want to get up every day, go to work and pay your taxes, right?
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
As well they should.
I'm sure most of them are willing and able to work.
It's not their fault the man has them behind bars.Rolleyes

Makes sense, since they behind bars, they can't be doing their normal day/night jobs of selling drugs and robbing people.
they are a little late to report this. they busted inmates at dauphin county prison 2 years ago.
