Shane B started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

The mandatory shut down of most businesses in California due to Covid-19 in Mid-March 2020 has left more than 6 million Californians unemployed through no fault of their own.  

6 million have filed claims - but as many as 40% are not receiving any benefits nearly 4 months into the pandemic!!  This is clearly due to a lack of leadership and know-how at the California EDD. It's not getting better, it's getting worse by the day. 

California is the technology capital of the world! It's also the wealthiest state in the United States and the 5th largest economy in the world!

Clearly, California doesn't lack the know-how or the human resources, or capital to solve the problems at the EDD!

However, 4 months in, clearly, the EDD lacks the leadership and knowledge to solve these problems and harness California's vast resources to solve the problems and get those due benefits paid NOW. 

Our economic crisis, EDD's failure to pay our claims, needs the same focus as Covid-19. It's been months for thousands and the economic crisis created by EDD's incompetence is just as real as CV-19. We need competence, we leadership, we need action, and we need it NOW

Governor Newsome: Sharon Hilliard, by her own admission, is not getting the job done!  We're calling on you to fire Sharon Hillard and find a leader that can get EDD back on track. Millions of Californians have been waiting months for their Federal and State benefits and can't wait any longer!!
