Justice Considering eliminating $300 Extra Unemployment Benefit Early

West Virginia MetroNews – Gov. Jim Justice said Wednesday he’s considering eliminating the $300 weekly additional unemployment benefit that thousands of state residents receive before its September expiration date. Read the full article.

Justice said he’s heard from employers that can’t fill jobs. He said some people still need the benefits but there are some that don’t.

“We got plenty of folks that are hurting and not speaking of those folks in any way but you’ve got a lot, a lot, a lot of other folks that are scamming the whole system,” Justice said. “Our businesses are pleading with our people. We’ve got to have you back to work.”
