Philadelphia Unemployment Project started this petition to Governor Tom Wolf and

Pennsylvanians can’t get their unemployment benefits and can’t even speak to someone to find out what’s wrong.

PA… DESERVES… BETTER!!!

We demand that Gov. Wolf and Lt. Gov. Fetterman immediately ensure: 

  1. All unemployed claimants are able to speak promptly to someone about any issues with their claims: answer the phones! 
  2. No claimant waits months to receive benefits without any communication from the state: pay our benefits on time!
  3. Direct communication with claimants about their claims: accountability now!

“I’ve lost count of the number of redials I’ve done since I’ve started having problems with my unemployment,” said Ann Davidson, an older disabled Philadelphian.

“People’s issues aren’t getting fixed,” said Clover Hines. “It’s almost impossible to find the right person to fix your claim.” She’s called the unemployment office hundreds of times. The few time’s she’s gotten through, she faced disrespect instead of assistance. 

“It’s a nightmare,” said Victoria Washington, who’s praying she can receive a personal loan to cover expenses while she waits to be able to apply.

Sign and share this petition to demand an end to the incompetence of the Office of Unemployment Compensation which has left hard-working Pennsylvanians on the brink of ruin.
