Over one million residents living in Michigan have been affected by COVID-19. For many, this is the first time in their lives that they have to collect unemployment. Each day, I am contacted by individuals who are struggling to use Michigan's broken unemployment system. Some have gone nine weeks without seeing a single payment. Many cannot even login to their accounts or get through to have their questions answered.
Have you filed for unemployment since March 10th, when the first cases of COVID-19 were announced in Michigan? How has the process been for you?
