Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced his state would end the $300 federal jobless payments that come in addition to typical unemployment.
“During truly unprecedented times, hardworking Georgians have stayed resilient, and businesses of all sizes have quickly adapted to an unpredictable environment,” Kemp said in a statement. “Even in the middle of a global pandemic, job growth and economic development in Georgia remained strong — including an unemployment rate below the national average.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“To build on our momentum, accelerate a full economic recovery, and get more Georgians back to work in good-paying jobs, our state will end its participation in the federal COVID-19 unemployment programs, effective June 26th. As we emerge from this pandemic, Georgians deserve to get back to normal — and today’s announced economic recovery plan will help more employees and businesses across our state do so,” he said.
Kemp’s announcement follows a disappointing April jobs report, and many economists blamed the extra federal employment benefits as an incentive to stay out of the work force.
Georgia is ending the additional $300 federal jobless payments that come in addition to typical unemployment.
