SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California officials knew a computer upgrade for the state's unemployment insurance program was vulnerable to problems before it was installed.
The Sacramento Bee reports that officials underestimated how many unemployment claims would be affected by a glitch in the $188 million system upgrade.

They really get in a tizzy when they can’t take the money they’ve confiscated from us and give it to people who didn’t earn it and many even aren’t grateful for it, they just expect it and believe they’re entitled to it.
This is unemployment insurance, which is paid for by employer payroll contributions, not welfare.
I just got laid off yesterday from a job I had for 9 years. I think I do deserve it, since it’s was paid into for me while I was working.
Yeah, unemployment is different than welfare. Even so politicians extend unemployment benefit weeks, and have done so in the past, so it is in this way looked at similarly as a benefit like welfare, at least to the politicrats.
So what are the Useful Idiots gonna do? Vote Republican?
The Plantation serfs will bend over and take it, cursing the "rich" (computer programming government employees) all the while.
I am on unemployed and my check was delayed 4 weeks which made my bills behind. I have been sending out resumes and only got 1 interview. I don’t know how I would have survive without it. Yes they delayed and there are people who have been waiting since July. Now ever pay period I worried if I will get a check on time again. I fear they will resort back to their delays. I submitted my claim then called the office to tell me I am not in their system. Now I am getting my claims but 1 week later but I am submitting it online.
“glitch” hell. “underestimated” my eye.
It was known before they even released this abomination that it was plagued with problems and the ivory tower pissants were pissed that a minion dared to tell them “not to congratulate themselves just yet, that there were serious problems with the software.”
Instead of delaying the release and fixing the software, they “counseled” the minion on his lack of “etiquette” because he emailed his concerns to the top and to anyone in the CA government that was involved.
Then the lie to blame the problems on the so-called “shutdown” to try and pin the blame on the Republicans (spit).
Worthless government debris.
Actually, it was paid in by you, but in the name of the company. You, as an employee, represent a cost to the company. Any money paid in your name, as an employee, exactly like the other half of the Medicare tax, is your money. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
It’s your money and you should get some of it back without reservation on your behalf.
Unemployment is a tax on employment.
If folks want to voluntarily pay for private unemployment insurance, that’s fine—but forced contributions from employers are wrong, IMO.
Emails indicate that the governor’s press office directed officials to push a message that reduced federal funding was part of the problem.
Well we are talking about governor moonbeam, the most destructive politician in the history of California, and considering that we have the likes of DiFi, Boxhead,the Sanchiquita sisters, Earwaxman, and Marxist Waters, that’s saying something. Basically it’s saying were SCREWED!
No, if an employee paid into an unemployment pool voluntarily out of his own funds, that would be completely different.
This is simply a tax.
Yeah Cali is so “blue” they are exporting libs all over the place (Colorado, Az, and Texas for example) while still electing folks like DiFi by 25 points....
I wish you luck in finding more work. Maybe it’s temporary, but you probably have considered a Plan B. already in case this is not temporary.
When they say “glitch” they should be saying “human stupidity.”
“Cali” exporting blue?
Lifelong California conservatives such as myself
would just be happy to export some of the libtards
that have been exported to us over the past fifty
plus years including:
Nancy Pelosi (Maryland)
Barbara Boxer (New York)
Maxine Waters (Missouri)
Willie Brown (Texas)
