Right now there are more Floridians that are either furloughed/unemployed than there are jobs available. How are we expected to look for jobs during this pandemic when majority of establishments are closed. There's also the issue of Floridians that are furloughed, which means that technically they still have a job. Are they expected to look for another employment in the meantime and then drop that new employment the minute that there original place of employment opens. That is unfair to that new employer. We believe that the waiver of having to look for employment while collecting unemployment should be extended until the entire state of Florida is economically opened. Then and only then is when there is no excuse for someone not to be searching for a job during unemployment. Floridians hope that you would consider the situation that we are all in. We were forced to be on unemployment by COVID-19. We did not wake up one day and decide that we want the government to pay for our livelihoods. We want to go back to work, when it is safe to do so. Floridians hope that you will consider changing your decision to not extend the waiver.
