Why this petition matters

Started by M Scott

The hardworking taxpayers of Florida deserve the unemployment benefits they've been promised as a result of COVID-19. The current system to apply for these benefits is quite simply inoperable and the majority of our citizens are unable to take advantage of the benefits they so desperately need due to an outdated and mismanaged website that Governor DeSantis was already made aware of previously and declined to improve. People are trying at all hours of the night to submit an application to no avail. Phone lines are either busy or sent to an answering machine that directs the caller to the website. The way we are being treated through this crisis is unacceptable. Without the ability to successfully apply, the citizens of Florida are at risk of losing out on federal stimulus money they are relying on to supplement their income. Force Governor DeSantis to take action by requiring him to experience first-hand the impossible frustration that hundreds of thousands of Floridians are experiencing right now with DEO's inept application process.
