Business Leaders Oppose Unemployment Subsidies

Dozens of business leaders have signed a letter to Governor Abbott and the Texas Workforce Commission, saying Texas should no longer participate in supplemental unemployment payments. Thirty-seven business groups and Chambers of Commerce signed the letter, saying $300 weekly payments have become their most significant barrier to filling job openings. Texas Association of Business CEO Glenn Hammer says shops and restaurants were already competing for the workforce. He says the TWC should instead promote that companies hire more people and look at other options like funding for more childcare.
