I was laid off in April from a New York company that contracted me to work as a family therapist in TX. I applied for benefits and was approved. To make some extra cash in August, I decided to try working at a bar as a cocktail server. It went horribly and I only made $20.00 that night. I decided it was not worth the time nor could that wage ($2.15 per hour) compare to my weekly benefits. My bar boss told me,”try out the bar scene and if it’s not for you, let me know by tomorrow”. So I did. I left the job because I have an MA in Counseling and the work/pay was nowhere close to my previous job. Now, I’m getting questionnaires from NY UI asking why I quit that one day job. And, frankly, I’m scared. Is it possible that they could cut my benefits off for quitting…$20 for seven hours of work?! Please help. I need some advice.
