Unemployment

8/19/2010
Unemployment is not a pretty word.  I do have some good news in this regard however.  As part of the changes to the last unemployment extension, "EUC Fix" has been added. The unemployed can now take a temporary placement without fear of losing their unemployment benefits, or having them lowered in the future.  This has been a very real issue within our company and I am sure among all staffing companies.  We have had many potential employees turn down positions due to the fact that they don't want to jeopardize their unemployment benefits.  It's a shame the benefit setup "disincentivized" taking a job!  However, it seems like it has been corrected which is great.

Thanks for visiting our website.
