  • DeSantis made the right call in ending unemployment bonus — Distance doesn’t just make the heart grow fonder. Distance can also make the head look wiser. Such is the case with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ June decision to end the foolish federal unemployment bonus. The governor was attacked for hurting people who lost their jobs in the pandemic. Yet a new research paper by the Foundation for Government Accountability proves that the governor’s decision profoundly helped workers, their families, and Florida as a whole.

Phil Scott of Vermont, serving as policy analyst and constitutent services manager. He also previously served as an executive assistant.

  • FGA Research Shows How Ending Unemployment Expansions Can Kickstart America’s Economic Comeback — Today, the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) released a paper comparing the current labor shortage to labor shortages seen during the Great Recession.  The paper explains how extended benefits used to combat COVID-19-related unemployment closely resemble the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program that followed the Great Recession. Both programs extended or increased unemployment benefits and allowed many Americans to collect more money on welfare than they received from their previous jobs. FGA research found that following the cut of the EUC in 2014, three million jobs were added to the economy and there was an increase of employment by 2.5 million workers. Similar results have been seen in states that have withdrawn from pandemic-related unemployment programs with the number of new unemployment claims dropping by 45 percent and work search activity jumping to nearly 30 percent.
