California To “Pause” Unemployment Claims For 2 Weeks

California To “Pause” Unemployment Claims For 2 Weeks

The Employment Development Department (EDD) Strike Team established by
Governor Gavin Newsom released their Strike Team Report and detailed findings report today. In response, EDD Director Sharon Hilliard sent a letter to the Governor detailing the immediate actions EDD will implement, including a two week pause period that will “help expedite new claimant payments, reduce fraud and tackle backlog issues moving forward.”

...

Currently, the EDD has a backlog of nearly 600,000 Californians who have applied for UI more than 21 days ago and yet their claims have not been processed, and an estimated 1 million cases where individuals received payments but subsequently modified their claim and thus are awaiting resolution.

This state is a fucking clown show. 

We have one of the largest economies in the world, yet are broke because we spend the money in the dumbest possible ways.

How can they be broke? San Francisco just decided to give only black and Pacific islander mothers $1000 a month during their pregnancy and the 6 months after. I guessthat is one way to increase your voter base by incentivizing them to have even more children.

Broke?  Seems inevitable but this may have more to do with corruption and incompetence.   This government department has been heavily criticized recently for non-transparency and inefficiency.

California is that dude who makes $300K a year and goes bankrupt 100% because of his insane spending habits.

The bulletrain alone, is the biggest public works boondoggle in history.

A few billion here, a few billion, there after a while it kinda adds up.

As a railroader, I am generally 100% for expanding rail service. That whole project was a disastrous money pit.

In May Gavin Newsom announced illegal immigrants could apply for disaster relief funds. And now they're broke.

Yeah, same idea.

Califonia has PLENTY of money --more money than needed-- if the place were run by adults. But it's not, it's run by ideologically possessed idiots. California has proven there is no amount of money idiots can't squander.

That's impossible. Marijuana tax revenue was the savior we needed. Don't you guys remember? All our problems are solved!
