Customer Question

Can't reach anyone live at unemployment office!
I was laid off from a corporate job in December. Severance just ended. I took a part time job in retail sales in January with the hope it would help me learn the retail aspect of my industry. The job pays min pay. I am under an orthopedics care for my knees as Its hard to stand for 6-7 hrs a day. Can I collect unemploymnet and spend the time looking for a better salary job with different working conditions?
