MADISON — The bureaucratic horror show that is Gov. Tony Evers’ Department of Workforce Development is far from over.
Just ask Jaime Swan. The Somerset, Wis. woman has waited more than two years for DWD to pay her the approximately $7,000 it owes her. Over her long ordeal, Swan says she has been ignored, insulted, pushed around and lied to. She’s been on the verge of eviction, she lost her phone service, and had her electricity shut off.
After being promised the money was on the way, Swan said she had to hire an attorney when the agency ripped the rug right out from under her and again denied her Unemployment Insurance claim. She won her appeal, only to be told after waiting (again) that she was out of luck.
