Jonas: Thanks to Rep. Witt for help with unemployment
I want to thank Rep. Brad Witt for fighting for Oregon's workers.
It is unacceptable that it can take up to 14 weeks to receive unemployment benefits. Oregonians and employers paid into the unemployment insurance fund for times like these and we all deserve to receive our benefits in a timely manner.
Rep. Witt is the only legislator to demand accountability from the Oregon Employment Department. It's hard to stand against members of one's own party, but Rep. Witt has done just that.
I hope the Secretary of State and Gov. Brown listen to his call for an investigation. Thank you, Rep. Witt for having the backs of the working people of Oregon.
Jolene Jonas, Scappoose
