For Jobless, Florida Set To Become Stingiest State In America  Empty Florida Lawmakers cut unemployment benefits to 23 weeks

Post by Guest on Sat May 07, 2011 9:05 am

Out-of-work Floridians would receive fewer state benefits while businesses pay less tax under a controversial proposal approved Friday by a divided Legislature. The deal, which Gov. Rick Scott is expected to sign into law, immediately cuts unemployment benefits by 11.5 percent. Jobless Floridians would continue to receive a maximum payment of $275 per week, among the lowest of any state in the country. But it would be paid for no more than 23 weeks, instead of 26.

The bill also makes it easier for a business to show employees were fired for cause, preventing them from receiving benefits. Unemployment tax rates for businesses are largely tied to the number of ex-workers receiving jobless benefits.
“It’s a disaster,” said AFL-CIO spokesman Rich Templin.

For Jobless, Florida Set To Become Stingiest State In America  Empty Florida Cuts Unemployment Benefits To Pay For Corporate Tax Cut

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Mon May 09, 2011 4:04 pm

Adding insult to injury, the money saved from cutting unemployment benefits will be used to reduce business taxes in a state where the corporate tax rate is already exceedingly low. Scott had been looking to cut corporate taxes even further, but was rebuffed by the legislature.

I have a nephew who is totally upside down on a condo he bought in FL in 2007. Finally, got it rented out for less than the payment. He says you can't even buy a job in FL. He finally moved out of the state.

I read that the new proposed UI law also reads that if the unemployment rate is 5 percent, then the weeks are only 12. Of course, they are a long, long way from seeing that low of a rate. But, this is going to cause the employers in FL to treat the workers really badly. God, you have to hope that they get rid of some of these a holes.
