Bennies To End Next Month

The weekly $300 dollar federal unemployment payment for Ohio residents…to offset the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, will end next month. Gov., DeWine says the payment, which came on top of state unemployment benefits, was a necessary tool to buoy those unemployed during the pandemic…as jobs dried up. But now…the state has thousands of available jobs. The state will tell the U.S. Department of Labor it’s ending its participation on June 26. A growing list of other states have made similar announcements. Ohio’s state human services agency has distributed more than $10.8 billion dollars in federal aid to more than a million people in the state, since March of last year.
