Dems to hold public hearing on unemployment extension

No time for unemployed workers(Cross-posted from Legislative Watch).

Frustrated with ten unnecessary days of delay from legislative leaders, House and Senate Democrats will be holding their own hearing tomorrow at 2 pm on the need to extend unemployment insurance benefits.

The hearings will take place in Room 1124 of the Legislative Building. All are welcome to attend.

    Also, according to the Dems:

    “On Tuesday, Rep. Wainwright filed a discharge petition for House Bill 676 with the House Principal Clerk’s Office. The petition would allow his bill to come directly to the House floor for action if supported by the majority of the chamber’s members.”

    This bill does need to presented again. I was told on March 22nd I had 30 wks of unemployment left. Then 2 wks later told I only have 7 wks. I am in school, completing an internship, and working part time trying to earn extra money. I have been applying for jobs since January and have only had 2 interviews. Going back to school to add credentials to a current BS degree I hold that has helped very little in the job hunting process.

    We need assistance. I live in the foothills of NC where unemployment is still high while I see job prospects improving it will take me longer to find a job than the 2 wks I have left of benefits.
