Letter to Florida Governor DeSantis on Reemployment Assistance

Article

UnidosUS and Latino-serving organizations across the state of Florida call on state leadership to take swift action to improve Florida’s Reemployment Assistance system. A recent poll by UnidosUS on Latino unemployment, conducted by Latino Decisions July 2020, found that 60 percent of Florida’s Latino households have suffered two or more forms of lost income, such as a pay cut, loss of a job or gig work, or closure of their small business. Removing barriers to the economic security and upward mobility of all Latino households is critical to achieving the economic recovery that all Floridians want and need.
