This is an appeal by Judith Snyder from the decision of the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review affirming the referee and the bureau in disallowing benefits to her.
The appellant was last employed as a secretary by Robert I. Goldy, an attorney, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For her services she was paid $70.00 a week, which salary she had been receiving for seven and one-half months. She was a fully qualified secretary, a graduate of Temple University, and had been receiving salary increases in each of the three jobs she held subsequent to graduation. Her employer informed her that he had lost an important client and thus could not afford a full-time secretary. He offered her two days' work a week at a salary of $14.00 per day or $28.00 gros pay per week on a permanent basis. This salary would net appellant $23.94 per week after deducting Federal withholding tax of $2.80, social security of $.84 and city wage tax of $.42. If she were unemployed through no fault of her own, she would have received unemployment compensation of $35.00 per week.
