Nearly 400,000 workers have filed unemployment claims in just the last 2 ½ weeks. So many more are trying to do so that the system crashed.
Even worse, Florida only has $77.9 million to provide unemployment benefits. Why so little?
Because Republican Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Rick Scott wanted to create a FAKE jobs picture by limiting jobless claims!
Now, Latinos in service jobs are feeling the pain most after being laid off or fired because of COVID-19. And they’re being told they can only get $275-a-week --- NO ONE CAN LIVE ON THAT!
