This site was inspired by my bad experiences with the CA Employment Development Department in 2009-2010. I am an electrician and was working on an off throughout this time. It was during these hard times that I learned just how messed up the whole system really is.

We’ve all known people who abuse the system and have been for years. What I didn’t know is that the system actually caters to these people. If you are like me and the tens of thousands of others out there who are actively looking to work, or improving yourself by going to school, or starting a business, then you may be in for a rude awakening.

I thought it would be great to have a safe, anonymous place where people can vent their frustrations and share tips on dealing with this bureaucracy. Together we can support one another.

Thank you for visiting and sharing. Good luck!
