CAROLE M. CROOKS, PETITIONER
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION BOARD OF REVIEW, RESPONDENT
Appeal from the Order of the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review in case of In Re: Claim of Carole M. Crooks, No. B-152674.
Edward L. Miller, for petitioner.
William J. Kennedy, Assistant Attorney General, with him Richard Wagner, Assistant Attorney General, Chief Counsel, and Edward G. Biester, Jr., Attorney General, for respondent.
Judges Wilkinson, Jr., Blatt and DiSalle, sitting as a panel of three. Opinion by Judge Wilkinson, Jr.
[ 43 Pa. Commw. Page 269]
The Unemployment Compensation Board of Review (Board) found that claimant quit her employment rather than accept full-time employment under the same conditions as her part-time employment. In particular, the Board found that claimant refused the position because she did not receive an automatic pay raise. A review of the record in this case reveals that, while there is conflicting testimony, nevertheless, there is substantial credible testimony to support the Board's decision.
We need not discuss what the result would be if this case were to be decided, as the referee did, that claimant was denied benefits under Section 402(a) of the Unemployment Compensation Law, Act of December 5, 1936, Second Ex. Sess., P.L. (1937) 2897, as amended, 43 P.S. § 802(a). Suffice it to say, the Board decided it under Section 402(b)(1), 43 P.S. § 802(b)(1). Therefore we are not confronted with a case of refusing an offer of employment for family reasons.

Further there is no question that the work was suitable for she had been doing it on a part-time basis. It was the dissatisfaction with the wages which prompted claimant to quit. In this the Board is supported by claimant's own testimony. See Mosley v. Unemployment Page 270} Compensation Board of Review, 15 Pa. Commonwealth Ct. 447, 327 A.2d 199 (1974).
Accordingly, we will enter the following
And Now, June 7, 1979, the order of the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, Decision No. B-152674, dated January 12, 1978, is affirmed.
