I suspect that this number not moving down causes great worry in the governor’s office. And it should; she is contributing to the rate staying so high.
A job at minimum wage over 40 hours is $7.25 x 40 = $290.00
Unemployment benefit c heck is $297.00.
The marginal benefit of working 40 hours is $7.00.
Do you think that pressure is going to add to unemployment or reduce it?
Governor Purdue, please remove your executive order restoring benefits with that Federal money. You are making it harder to bring that number down.
