Florida Governor Says Those Who Are Currently Collecting Unemployment Benefits Better Start Looking For A Job

Ron DeSantis, the Governor Of The State of Florida claimed that those who are receiving unemployment benefits should start searching for a job since this is going to be the previous month they are able to take advantage of their benefits without showing proof that they’re searching for employment, based on The Daily Wire.

“Normally when you’re getting unemployment, the whole idea is that it’s temporary, and you need to be looking for work to be able to get off unemployment.”

“It was a disaster, so we suspended those job search requirements.”

“I think it’s pretty clear now — we have an abundance of job openings.”

“We absolutely can put more people to work,” he continued. “The demand is there. Businesses want to hire more people, and I think we can go in that direction very soon.”

“I think now we’re in just a different situation, you have a surplus of jobs, particularly in restaurant, lodging, hospitality, that people want to hire.”

“I mean, you see the signs all over the place. Look, that’s a good problem to have.”

“But we also just want to make sure, like, look, if you’re really unemployed, can’t get a job, that’s one thing.”

“But making sure that you’re doing your due diligence to look for work, and making sure those incentives align, better.”

“I don’t think it’s manipulation. You know, whatever the benefits are, people are availing themselves of it. That’s not their fault.”
