Having been a sub-contractor does not disqualify a person from unemployment. There must be some other factors involved in their decision to not pay unemployment benefits.

Thanks. It's nice to know that anyone is listening. I came across this in a websearch. I just typed help. :-) I will call that number and see if there's anything available for me. I fear there won't be. My online searching has shown that as a single, caucasian, non-disabled, 41 year old man, I'm eligible for less than just about anyone else. It's disappointing that things such as race and gender still count in those statistics. So much for equality.

I was working full time for a general contractor up until February of this year. I traded in my small car which would have been paid off by the end of this year for a more appropriate crossover SUV which would allow me to haul materials and tools to and from job sites in September 2013. I secured an apartment closer to my work area to save on fuel costs and travel time. That lease started in November 2013. The end of October I became very sick and had to spend 2 weeks in the hospital. I'm still following up with doctors to try to figure out what caused my illness. I feel fine now, but the damage has been done. I worked hard trying to get my credit into a decent place, and now I have creditors sending letters and calling and I can't afford to give them anything. Since losing my full time income, I have been taking odd jobs and working a part-time, seasonal position to stay afloat, but I am slowly sinking. I know things will change and I'll find a decent full time position, but I feel so overwhelmed and full of despair that sometimes it doesn't even feel like it's worth the effort. I just want to be even. I don't want anything more than I need, and I'm willing to work for it, I'm just afraid that I'm falling so far behind that it's going to take the rest of my life to get ahead again. I know there are people who have it worse than I do. I wish I was in a position to help others, but I seem to be having trouble just taking care of myself. Can you help?
