If I was promised a .25 cent raise and guaranteed hours to quit my second job but don’t receive this when I quit, can I get unemployment?

I have worked here for almost 2 years part-time. I was promised as many hours as I want a week and a quarter raise to quit my second job so I did but have not received any if this and its been over 2 months. Can I collect unemployment since I ask for 30 hours and receive less than 20?
