Citing Worker Shortage, Montana To Stop Federal Unemployment Benefits

Montana will cut off federal unemployment benefits nearly three months early and offer “Return to Work Bonuses” as a favor to employers, Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) announced Tuesday. 

Gianforte said he hears “from too many employers throughout our state who can’t find workers” and added that the state’s suffering from a “labor shortage” made worse by the benefits. 

Starting June 27, Montana workers will lose the extra $300 per week the federal government has been paying since December. The state will also cancel federal benefits for gig workers and the long-term jobless.

Montana is the only state saying it will forgo federal benefits, which are scheduled to expire in September, though it’s possible Congress could extend them again. It’s also possible other states could follow Montana’s lead. 

With Montana’s unemployment rate at 3.8%, compared with 6% nationally, the “vast expansion of federal unemployment benefits is now doing more harm than good,” Gianforte said. 

Across the country, employers and Republicans are complaining of a worker shortage, even though the unemployment rate remains high and wage growth hasn’t accelerated. Economists say if workers are truly hard to find, the scarcity should be reflected by rising wages.

This should be the case... if you are having trouble finding workers... maybe pay them a fair wage?

Did people really think that Trump was going to start his own new online platform or news network, considering he has no real money except the money that he has grifted from rubes he will now become a blogger on his website, be interesting to see if Facebook let's him back on tomorrow

I checked it out and it GLORIOUS in it's shitty laziness... it's basically a blog with comments turned off... add in a "contribution button that leads to the grift with the check box to stop recurring "contributions"... it is amazing how far that toad shaped man-baby has fallen.

Montana 's minimum wage is $ 8.75. an hour.  Or if your business has under $ 110,000 in sales  $ 4.OO , Yes $ 4.00 a friggen hour.  I wonder why they have trouble finding workers ?

We are all masters of self-deception but many Americans are masters of the art. Here in Canada, a good friend who is not stupid believes that Trudeau is single-handedly responsible for forcing all of the premiers and doctors for installing unnecessary bans on gatherings.

Yes sadly I know many smart people who believed Jason Kenney could somehow make oil great again. People get stupid about politics very easily.

Given the people in charge of conservative parties these days is there a difference between the two?

The right wing has successfully managed to conflate the two to their core base. This despite repeated and overwhelming evidence that they are being treated like all-day suckers. This is what happens when you delegate your thinking and turn your moral compass off.

Very serious people on the right. 

 

 

The thing that concerns me most, as the US crumbles, is that they have significant weapons of mass destruction and have zero qualms taking what they want and invading countries for "peace".

No matter what is found or not found in the ballot recounts, the right-wing fascists in the US and Trump will never accept their losses.
