All people who want help finding a new job should be able to access it, especially when they’re already unemployed. It shouldn’t be up to the government to decide who needs re-employment assistance, and who should be left to their own devices to find a new job.
Expanding the eligibility criteria for unemployed persons to access re-employment services will add further strain to underresouced state unemployment agencies. Additionally, not all unemployed persons need help getting new jobs, so giving them access to these services is an unnecessary expenditure.
