Governor Doug Ducey today announced “Arizona Back To Work” — Arizona’s plan to support Arizonans getting back to work, and fill the thousands of jobs available across the state.
Governor Ducey announced Arizona will no longer be taking the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, and instead will offer one-time bonuses to returning workers, along with child care support, educational opportunities and rental assistance.
“In Arizona, we’re going to use federal money to encourage people to work…instead of paying people not to work,” Governor Ducey said.
As the Arizona Republic has reported, many employers report they are having trouble competing with the federal government’s unemployment payments, which are paying individuals more to stay home and not work than to find a job.
Arizona will offer a $2,000 Back To Work bonus for eligible workers — with a goal of getting as many Arizonans as possible to rejoin the workforce by Labor Day, September 6, 2021.
With this new program, Arizona will stop taking the federal government’s pandemic unemployment benefits effective Saturday, July 10. Arizona will also provide support for unemployed individuals seeking to upskill their careers with adult education programs as well as additional child care opportunities.
“With ample supplies of the COVID-19 vaccine on hand and millions of Arizonans vaccinated, people feel safer and are finally returning to life in Arizona as we knew and loved it before,” said Governor Ducey. “People are back in the office, restaurants are at full capacity and tourists are flocking to our state.”
“Although more people are ready to work today in Arizona than before the pandemic, many businesses are struggling to fill vital positions,” the Governor added. “We cannot let unemployment benefits be a barrier to getting people back to work.”
Governor Ducey’s Back To Work program will help individuals transition from unemployment to a new job, and ensure those currently receiving unemployment have support available to help them in this critical step forward.

Working at Fleishmanns ABMauri in Memphis was the worst experience ever in my working career I would never recommend that anyone ever work there. It is the most unprofessional management from Top to bottom HR is nothing but a joke You are either in the click or you are not. I was let go because I asked the plant manager if she had any kids When I was trying to have visitation weekend for my daughter and they were forcing me to work because people had gone out supposedly with Covid when they did not have it at all. And they had already gone out 2 times before and did not have it. Using the system to get 6 weeks of grime work but never had Covid at all.
