The nation’s federal unemployment infrastructure has been overwhelmed by the recent influx of unemployment claims filed. Many Americans are still having a hard time getting through as the COVID-19 crisis continues to wreak havoc far and wide; exposing much of the fragilities in industries and economies at home and abroad.
This unprecedented event led to 33 million+ unemployment claims filed in under seven weeks with much more to come. Some experts predict the nation’s unemployment rate is currently hovering between 20 – 40 percent as states nationwide slowly begin coordinated efforts of easing current quarentine restrictions.
Join our knowledgeable presenter Taina Orellana as she shares insights and best practices that can help you make informed decisions towards weathering this storm.
