Posted on 01/17/2019 6:12:09 PM PST by Mariner
The Trump Administration has told California and seven other states that they cannot offer unemployment benefits to federal workers who arent getting a paycheck.
Gov. Gavin Newsom last week encouraged thousands of California workers furloughed due to the federal government shutdown to apply for unemployment insurance, vowing that well cover you we have your back.
But Wednesday, the California Employment Development Department was among those sent a memo from the Department of Labor which states that federal employees who are working without pay are not unemployed and are, therefore, not eligible for UCFE (Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees).
Newsom called it about as extraordinary a letter I ever received at an appearance at the Sacramento International Airport on Thursday.

He's pitching a gem folks, so settle in with a beer and enjoy.
That’s because they will be paid - just not yet.
Trump signs law guaranteeing back pay for federal workers
Poor Newsom...The rest of the country sees him as a freak.
They are not unemployed...
Shame on Newsome for his party to refuse to secure our borders which is the government’s number 1 job.
Gavin Nesom and his Democrat Buddies HATE America
The notice went out to SEVEN other states besides CA.
Likely Virginia and Maryland are in that mix.
This is broad impact beyond Federal workers in CA.
Maybe they should find a job where there is actually work to do, because there are currently 6.9 million job openings in the U.S.
Why is this ahole even bitching about the wall? Ca has one!
They’re unpaid and not unemployed so unemployment payments would not apply to them.
I bet they’re still getting all of their health and other benefits.
Which makes his true support extremely thin.
We’ve reached all demagoguery all the time.
... notice went out to SEVEN other states besides CA......

Yeah, but California ones are, you know “special” as the SNL Church Lady used to say. Special.
Also: 1) off work relaxing (more than usual when at work) 2) bellyaching for local TV cameras 3)trying to set up Go Fund Me money to cash in (called illegal recently) 4) trying for unemployment cash 4) acting shocked and astonished that their pay was shut off during the shutdown despite more than 11 months of warning that the coming shutdown was getting closer month by month-—so didn’t even begin to save money ahead 5)getting full retroactive pay later as always. Can someone get them some new hankies? The old ones are so soaked with mournful tears they’re useless during TV interviews.
Not a very good comparison. Yes, both are evil, but The Joker is a lot smarter than the joker from Calimexico.
Yes, we are.

Gruesome Newsome just got ScrewedSome by The Donald. Can’t think of another California psycho who deserves it other than former Gov. Moonbrain and Tranny Pelosi/ Adam Shitt, and Rep. Swallowswell.
#16. Yes, both are evil but “the Joker is a lot smarter than the joker from Calimexico”. However, the JOKER finally got killed. Gruesome is real, alive and stinking.
No wonder Kimberley bailed on him. He’s one weird POS.
