The US economy is responding positively and the return to normalcy is increasingly perceived, in large part because of the progress in the vaccine application program implemented by President Joe Biden.
With all this, businesses and large companies are resuming their rhythm and generating new jobs, many of them closed during the pandemic. However, they accuse that there is a shortage of human resources to fill the new positions.
Faced with this phenomenon, several states made the decision to withdraw the $ 300 unemployment benefits that the federal government authorized to support people without work during the pandemic, because they consider that this help is demotivating people to hire.
The Yahoo! Finance published that other statements, such as Arizona, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and Montana are turning to bond delivery to incentivize people to rehire.
In Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey announced the “Back to Work” program, which offers a one-time payment of $ 1,000 to unemployed residents who accept a part-time job and $ 2,000 to workers hired full time.
In Connecticut, Governor Ned Lamont announced compensation from between $ 1,000 to $ 10,000 for unemployed residents who find a full-time job and keep it for at least eight weeks.
In New Hampshire, the summer stipend program offers bonuses of $ 500 and $ 1,000 for those hired part-time and full-time, respectively.
For his part, the governor of Oklahoma, Kevin Stitt, announced an offer of $ 1,200 for the first 20,000 state residents hired and complete six weeks working.
A similar program was launched in Montana that includes $ 1,200 for people who find a new job, with the requirement to stay at least four weeks.
These five states are early terminating the extended federal unemployment benefits program, which the federal government will keep in effect until Sept. 6.
Labor Department officials have said there is nothing they can do about the early suspension of federal unemployment benefits.
