T M started this petition to KY Legislature and

Since the beginning of the covid pandemic, unemployment rates have skyrocketed. People have lost their income through no fault of their own. This is when the state should step in and help. Kentucky has failed miserably in that pursuit.

In a years time the government of Kentucky has done little to nothing to fix unemployment. People are losing /have lost their homes, their cars, and entire livelihoods because of the inaction and apathy of our legislatures and governor.

This must be rectified, immediately, and in a way that will withstand the test of time.

We demand:

-More offices avaliable in more locations for people seeking help.

-When those offices are unavailable, such as in times of the pandemic, there must be a reliable and ready way to communicate with any and all sections of the unemployment office so that issues may be resolved in a timely manner.

-More staff for the unemployment office, and a plan to rapidly increase staff numbers in time of an emergency.

-The computer system must be upgraded and the entire processing system modernized.

-A link between other assistance programs, so that if one qualifies for UI benefits they will automatically qualify for food assistance (SNAP) and Healthcare assistance (medicaid or Medicare).

-Accountability and repercussions for officials who fail and have failed to act in a way that addresses the needs of their constituency.
