Migraine....do you take all the deductions on your income tax returns that you "qualify" for? Im guessing yes, yet you are critical of others for doing the same thing. I don't disagree that maybe something is wrong with the guidelines but it is what it is and that's NOT the school system's fault. And Huggie....how do you know that no one checks what someone puts down? Im guessing…
qcstylee - New Illinois law bans employers from conducting background checks on interviewees - Quincy, IL News
People do change. If you're going to judge someone based on something they did 8 or 10 years, when they have to check the"yes" box to the question of, "Have you EVER been convicted of a felony?" Then I'm glad they're making this a law. I've been denied employment AND publicly humiliated when a potential employer looked through my application several years ago, and in front of everybody…

How stupid can a guy be. He just gets out of jail, and then pulls a dumb move like that. Looks like he's gonna be in and out of jail the rest of his life.

Migraine it's not just morally wrong its embarrassing. I know moms that lie about their income. They stand in line at the sign up table and giggle about it. Then they skip out to there brand new SUV like its no big deal. No one checks to see if what you wrote down is correct. No pay stubs, W-2s or income tax return needed. I don't have a new car and my kids may not be in dance, but at least…

The system needs "fixing", in large part, because our government is not enforcing the laws on the books now. Reform will only help if the powers that be like the new law - which isn't likely since the new laws will probably be tougher than the current ones - the pendulum is swinging back the other direction. "Let everybody in" sounds good on paper but in the real world it won't work. The…

Illinois cracking down on unemployment fraud

2 months, 3 weeks ago from the Associated Press

Collected $26 million in federal tax refunds

State officials in Illinois say they're cracking down on unemployment fraud.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security said that so far this year, it has collected $26 million in federal tax refunds from people who knowingly collected unemployment insurance while working. The department said it has collected more than $120 million over the length of a 3-year-old program.

State officials say people who owe the department money because of fraud won't receive future benefits until their debts are paid.

The department said it has confiscated federal tax refunds more than 58,000 times over the last three years. IDES says the garnishment program is making a difference, and about 920 people entered repayment plans in its first year. Now that number is nearly 3,500.
