PA just could do the fix, now 2 Republican Billls to overhaul the system...when will we get a break

Just found on the Internet
Good Read for Pennsylvanians:

By Jane M. Von Bergen
Inquirer Staff Writer

When the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry announced Thursday that the state's unemployment rate had dropped in April to 7.5 percent, it was good news.

But it frightened Gail E. Carmack, a paralegal who has been laid off since 2009.

A good report means that 20 weeks of federally funded extended unemployment benefits - the final 20 weeks of benefits that anyone can receive - will come to an end June 11 unless Pennsylvania legislators act quickly to adopt the federal government's new formula for disbursing the money to the states.

If the legislature doesn't act, 45,000 people will lose their benefits June 11. An additional 90,000 will be affected by the end of the year.

It seems to be I went to a hockey game, and a fight broke out. Good article Jane. Thank you, it is much appreciated. Jane writes for the Philadelphia Inquirer

The PA legislators need to get the 3 year look back passed now, quit fooling around and messing things up, and doing even more harm to people who are already hurting. PA citizens will remember come election time who helped them in times of need and who did them harm.

Jane Von Bergen writes for the Phila. Inquirer and has been a great advocate and a voice for the unemployed in PA.

Back in January and February she did a great piece on 60 People, 60 days, focusing on 60 different people who were laid off, some 99ers some not. If they agreed, she posted email addresses and links to their resumes. She has been great.
