Ohio 83rd District Representative Jon Cross Featured on Public Eye this Weekend

Written by on May 14, 2021

State Representative Jon Cross urged Gov. Mike DeWine to end extra unemployment benefits as a way to get workers back on the job.

Cross stated that it’s not that he’s against unemployment but, “ Unemployment is meant to be temporary and is meant to help people get back on their feet. With the pandemic ending, the extra funding takes away the incentive to go back to work, and it needs to end.”

After Cross made those comments, Governor DeWine announced on Thursday that the administration will inform the U.S. Department of Labor that Ohio intends to stop participation in the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program on June 26, 2021.

For the complete discussion with Rep. Cross, tune in Public Eye Saturday morning at 7:30 and Sunday at noon on WKTN.
