Hard to believe when the unemployment rate just increased, but that's FL for you.
That would be directed towards the newly unemployed. I'll be a 99er soon.
While I voted AGAINST Rick Scott, implementing the community service & increasing the number of job searches isn't a bad idea in my opinion. Taking away weeks...? Not so much..
If you are indeed looking for work, then providing more than 2 work searches shouldn't be a problem. With the community service, I think it would give ppl who don't feel like they are contributing to society, an outlet to do something worthwhile.
Idk, just my opinion. I could go on for days. I wrote a paper for a sociology class on how unemployment has impacted society. We are living proof of that, so I won't rehash what I wrote.
