Do you think $300 unemployment should end?

US Chamber of commerce is asking for an immediate end to the $300 federal #unemployment. Some states are already shutting it down.
Do you think the $300 federal unemployment benefit should end immediately?

YES! There are many companies struggling to find people to work. Alot have to close because they are not staffed. I wish I could sit home and make more money doing nothing. When the extra cash ends there will be a mad dash to find a job and then there will be so much competition out there... good luck with that.

Unemployment Benefits MUST READ!!! MY STATE REPRESENTATIVE ROCK!!

God is Awesome! I have been waiting on my UI/Pandemic benefits since January 2021. I submitted every piece of paperwork they asked me for. At the end of February I received a letter saying I was approved. So I waited on a check.....nothing! I called almost every day and got the same answer yes we have all your information yes you are approved ....but a supervisor is looking over your case. I waited two weeks called again same thing a supervisor will contact me after I requested for them to call. Days passed no call. I saw a post here on Jobcase a woman expressed that we should contact our State representative/legislators concerning unanswered unemployment. I DID JUST THAT! I emailed my state representative March 31. A secretary from their office emailed me back the same day saying they received my email and asked me for my case #. I emailed them back immediately! The next day April 1, I received another email saying they have reached out to SCDEW on my behalf and I should hear from them and to continue to check my portal. I didn’t get a call so yesterday I called and got answers to every question I have been asking for month. A supervisor stepped in on the call and I can say Today is April 6 and I woke up a healthy bank account! I received my back pay from SCDEW!!

Pay back unemployment?

#SouthCarolina is asking Pandemic #Unemployment recipients to send in proof of employment prior to receiving benefits or PAY BACK UNEMPLOYMENT back through December 2020. Do you think that's fair?

If you are on employment, you should not have to pay back anything, if the reason for the unemployment is not your fault.

Only IF the claimant falsified info. If agency granted benefits then decided applicant was NOT qualified; then wanted repayment; get it from whomever made the mistake or write it off and employ better criteria for processing applications more efficiently. Train state employees properly in the future

No stimulus or income tax refund

3rd Stimulus Bill

Just wanted to share with yall I actually received stimulus check today,Friday March 12th. Biden just signed bill into law yesterday. I hope everyone gets theirs very quick also cause lord knows we all need it and have been waiting a long time. Also for those who are still fighting for your unemployment benefits, keep fighting and stay diligent. Get what is yours. We all deserve what is honestly ours ,which we all paid for all these years working. Get what you can while you can. Just be honest because someone else will take what is rightfully yours!! Good luck and God Bless America!! #stimulus #unemployment #strongertogether

State revokes $300 unemployment in June - do you think that's fair?

We've heard that companies are having a hard time finding workers, and that has pushed the state of #Montana to stop paying out the $300 federal #unemployment as of June 2021 (rather than September). Looks like they're hoping to instead pay incentives go back to work.

Yes I agree because no one wants work because some are making more money staying home.

100%. Paying these benefits serves only to retard economic recovery. It is literally paying people to stay home.

Draw unemployment until you get gainfully employment

Trees llc was a horrible place to work.disrespect..the boss took all the employees and went to work for kendall. Not saying anything to anyone...just jumped ship..I got left behind and there was no one left other than junkies.i was taking care of my mom while she was dealing with cancer and I had permission.when the boss screwed me over amd left ,his replacement fired me .I even explained the situation..I even went along to help them with hurricane Dorian relief and they show their gratitude by firing me for taking care of family..shady....Judd was the guys name. Such a rude,arrogant p.o.s strongly recommend calling wolf or Cortese instead of these people. .
