UI Bill Action Alert

The Vermont Senate is about to pass a bill that will dramatically increase state unemployment benefits despite the federal government providing additional benefits to claimants. The marginal benefit of this change will be very small for those on unemployment, however the marginal cost to business owners will be very large.
