An alternative viewpoint: Don’t miss Monday’s luncheon on unemployment insurance

Business groups and their conservative allies have been holding forth a great deal in recent weeks [1] about their plans for altering some of the basic components of North Carolina’s tax and safety net systems. Today, Governor-elect McCrory even made the remarkably ill-informed and radical statement at an NC Bankers Association event that he didn’t know if he would allow North Carolina to accept federal unemployment insurance funds approved as part of the “fiscal cliff” deal [2]

If you’re looking for alternative points of view that explore how we can modernize these critical systems without slashing essential services or harming working families, you owe it to yourself to attend next Monday’s NC Policy Watch Crucial Conversation [3]: “How North Carolina can fix its unemployment insurance system without harming workers and their families or the economy, featuring national employment law expert George Wentworth.”
