Governor Asa Hutcherson recently announced the hr would no longer allow Arkansas to participate in the Federal Unemployment Program for the 300 a week in pandemic benefits. Stating that there is a shortage in workers when the jobs that do state they are hiring are jobs of low minimum wage and do not offer the hours nor the financial security of its employees. We are not under the impression that benefits will last long term but the 10 weeks the Governor is making the decision to take away from us would allow us to male plans and transition to our once Sufficient employment opportunity.
