Leyvis Lopez started this petition to Governor Ron DeSantis and

 

    Gov. Ron Desanti of Florida announced that he will be ending participation in All Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation Programs on June 26, 2021. This will end unemployment eligibility to independent contractors, gig-workers, and sole-proprietors and many more citizens who are no longer eligible for regular unemployment benefits who are not able to work during these troublesome times.

Florida has among the lowest benefits and not to mention that Florida is one of the worse  state in the U.S. in processing issues on unemployment claims.

  • Ending these programs will cause a lot of families to lose their homes, source of income, food, etc... Not everyone on unemployment is just being lazy. For most of us the federal programs mentioned above have been our lifeline during the Covid-19 pandemic when the jobs we worked for have completely shut down or dramatically reduced hours. This is no longer about politics, we are talking about families, children, and the elderly that will be on the verge of homelessness if these programs are ending while still under a pandemic.

So we the people of the great state of Florida are asking Gov. Ron Desanti to reconsider his actions to end these federal programs short of the federal end date of September 6, 2021. 

We are also asking President Joe Biden to step in and take action against these Governors in any way he legally can. EXECUTIVE ORDER. 

 Thank You
