Things were supposed to be getting better at Wisconsin’s unemployment office, but instead are getting worse.
At least that is the message from State Senator Van Wanggaard. Wanggaard yesterday demanded answers from the head of the Department of Workforce as to why it is taking four to five weeks for people who’ve filed an unemployment claim to hear back from anyone. Wanggaard also said one in four claims in Wisconsin still have not been paid. He says all the problems exist despite DWD’s addition of hundreds of more people to its payroll.
