Bewley: Get thee to a charity

Empower Wisconsin | July 8, 2020

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON  — Nothing says out-of-touch partisan like telling your desperate constituents that Republicans caused the Epic Fail at the Department of Workforce Development — and that they should apply to charities for help. 

Enter Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley (D-Mason).

“I was evicted (Monday). I call Senator Bewley asking for help and they say it’s the Republicans fault and recommended I call my church or salvation army for help? WTF JUST PAY ME MY UNEMPLOYMENT OWED TO ME!” one frustrated member of the Wisconsin Unemployment Support Group recently posted on the group’s Facebook page.  

“Imagine if someone owed you money & when you asked for it they told you to call 211 & go apply for FOODSHARE!! The leaders of this state have forsaken us. They must take action NOW to process and pay the claims,” tweeted an Empower Wisconsin Twitter follower who goes by the handle Fix It! 

Fix It! claims to be “16 Weeks Waiting” for Unemployment Insurance and federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), “Watching the Political BLAME GAME!” The frustrated claimant has been critical of Democratic and Republican leadership. 

While Bewley has criticized the Republican-led Legislature for failing to allocate funding to replace old technology at DWD, the agency has been plagued by people problems, particularly failed leadership, since the flood of claims hit in March. 

It’s not getting any better for many. The Evers administration says it could be October before some of the claims are settled. 

“Just spoke with unemployment they are working on April right now. My husband is June!!! Ugh so April people hopefully you will get paid soon!!” wrote Veronica Zakaryan on the support group Facebook page.
