    “This is a matter that deserves review. Our unemployment compensation policy should not penalize hardworking men and women for seeking temporary or part-time work.”

     

    Delaware

    Sen. Thomas Carper (D)

    “Even though our economy has finally turned the corner and is improving, there are still far too many Americans who can’t find a work or who are underemployed,” said Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.).  “As we work to create jobs and get our economy back on track we also need to continue to provide unemployment insurance to those Americans struggling to find gainful employment and examine ways to update our unemployment insurance system for the modern, entrepreneurial economy.  A number of reforms have been proposed, such as expanding current unemployment initiatives to encourage unemployment beneficiaries to start their own business and encouraging more states to adopt work-share programs to avoid lay-offs.  I will be following Sen. Reed’s proposal to fix the unemployment insurance loop hole as it moves through the legislative process.”

     

    Sen. Edward Kaufman (D)

    www.kaufman.senate.gov

     

    “While the economy is slowly improving, too many are still looking for work while others are ‘underemployed’ and looking for a full-time job with an adequate salary,” said Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-Del.). “It is my main priority as a Senator to create jobs and help those who were hurt by the economic downturn. Sen. Reed’s proposal would close the loophole in unemployment insurance so that more families can weather the recession. Until the economy recovers, we need to make sure that our unemployment insurance laws reflect the realities of today’s labor market.”
