For off I work in in a distribution center. Does anyone else file partial unemployment because we never have 30 hrs let alone 40. I'm tired of hearing at town hall meetings that they take care of the old timers. I work with guys that have 20+ years in the company that can't even pay their rent, it is ridiculous!!! And is anyone else wondering how long Edie is gonna get away with selling properties to home self and claiming they are failing when it has nothing to do with profit but how much he can make at that space leasing it to someone new?

Partial unemployment is a state by state thing. You need to prove your hours for the last 6-9 months and then they will average that out and give you a percentage of what your hours are now to make up for the loss of hours
Two years ago, when my hours were reduced from 20hrs to less than 10, I was awarded unemployment for every week that I was scheduled for less than 10 hrs. That was in Florida. After the partial benefit was exhausted they simply stopped using me. No formal lay off or face to face separation. What a classless company.
Ignore the ridiculous spammer lunatic ().
OP, you are the first person I've seen mention partial unemployment benefits here. There are state-specific variations in how it works, but yes it looks to me like many Sears employees probably qualify, IF you're willing and able to meet the requirements in your state for proving that you're actively seeking full-time employment at another company.
