WI Assembly Approves New Unemployment Plan

The doomed plan from Wisconsin Republicans to get people back to work took its first step forward at the Capitol. 

The Wisconsin Assembly yesterday approved new rules for people receiving unemployment and Medicaid benefits.  People will have to look for work, actually go on interviews, and accept jobs that they’re offered in order to qualify for benefits.  Republican lawmakers say the idea is not to punish people, but to get them back into the workforce.  Governor Tony Evers is expected to kill the plan when or if it makes it to his desk.
