"The Labor Department recently released some statistics that show just how badly millions of Americans still need extended enhanced unemployment benefits"
About the video:
"A casual dining restaurant that has been in business for almost 50 years, filed chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier today, joining Sizzler, California Pizza Kitchen, and Chuck E. Cheese so far this year.
Fortunately, CEO Shawn Lederman explained that: "This announcement does not mean 'Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday."
He continued: “Today's actions will allow us an opportunity to reposition the company for long-term stability as we recover from the unprecedented impact.”
I sure hope that Ruby Tuesday is able to keep their doors open and can adapt to this new normal that we call life in 2020.
Citizens that have been claiming unemployment benefits for at least 27 weeks increased to 2.4 million in September, which is an increase of 32.5% from August.
The report also explained that currently, 4.9 million people have been unemployed between 15 and 26 weeks.
Michele Evermore, from the National Employment Law Project, explained: “Last week we saw the biggest spike in long-term unemployment since they started measuring long-term unemployment.”
She continued: “It’s hard on people to be unemployed for such a long time. It’s hard on their mental health, it’s hard on their children’s performance in school, and it makes their employment prospects much worse in the future.”
I completely agree and hope that we can get more fiscal support for the struggling Americans that are using these unemployment benefits for essential items to survive the rest of this crazy year.
Finally, a whopping 19 states have fully disbursed their six weeks of weekly $300 or $400 LWA unemployment benefits.
Sorry to everyone in Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and West Virginia.
I hope you enjoyed your benefits while they lasted!
And hang in there if you live in Alaska, Kansas, Nevada, New Jersey, Virginia and Wisconsin, your backdated $1,800 unemployment check could be hitting your bank account any day now.
If you still have not applied for unemployment benefits in your state, get your application in before it’s too late.
Check out your state’s PUA or UI website, provide them with your latest employment history, explain that you are out of work due to that thing out there, and you could get a backdated check for more than $10,000!
To all of the gig-workers, self employed, independent contractors, 1099 workers, even side hustlers and part time gigers, these are unemployment benefits that you can actually claim through the PUA, which was created just for people like you.
These incredible government benefits won’t be available for long, so don’t delay in getting your application into your state’s unemployment system before they run out of money!"
