CT ready to pay $ 1000 to people returning to work
If you live in the state of Connecticut and are unemployed, Governor Lamont has designed a program to help you called “Back to Work CT”.
Here is how it works. If you’re a long-term unemployed Connecticut resident and thinking about returning to work, the state of Connecticut is offering to pay the first 10,000 long-term unemployed a signing bonus of $ 1,000 as an incentive to become a member. of manpower once again.
The press release states that to be considered long-term unemployed, one must be out of work for 8 to 12 weeks. Currently, there are 65,000 jobs to be gained in Connecticut.
the Ethan and Lou Show recently interviewed Scott Parente, owner of the popular lakeside restaurant “Down the Hatch”, who for the first time needed to place a recruitment ad to hire waiters. But, unfortunately, he can’t remember the last time he needed to recruit employees.
Let’s take a look at the numbers. If you are unemployed, you are likely receiving state unemployment benefits plus an additional federal unemployment benefit of $ 300 per week. So, based on the amount of your state unemployment check, does it even make sense to go back to work?
If you are unemployed and wondering “To work or not to work”, think about it. The weekly federal unemployment benefit of $ 300 may disappear at the end of September. Eventually, the state will ask you to prove that you have looked for work.
To apply for the $ 1000 signing bonus, you must first secure the position and then go to portal.ct.gov.com to apply.
