According to reports, Maine will begin a “Back to Work” program on Monday, which includes a one-time payment to people who join the workforce. Maine Governor Janet Mills Announced that that state’s Department of Labor and Department of Economic and Community Development will issue the payments.
The state’s program will be providing the employers the funds to give a “one-time $1,500 payment for eligible workers who start jobs between June 15 and June 30.” People who start a job in July will be receiving “a $1,000 payment for eligible workers” to help “encourage unemployed Maine people to return to the workforce.”
As the job market in Maine continues to recover from the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, the one-time payments attempt to entice the jobless Mainers to work. According to Mills, the payments are on a first-come, first-serve basis which “will utilize $10 million in federal funding and could reach up to 7,500 Maine people.”
“We have worked hard over the last fifteen months to get the pandemic under control so that it’s safe for everyone to return to work. Now COVID cases are down, vaccines are widely available, and jobs are plentiful,” Mills said.
She continued, “Employers across the state are looking to staff up, which means there are opportunities for everyone to work, earn a living and contribute to our state’s economic recovery.”
“With this new program, we are providing another tool to accelerate peoples’ transition back into the workforce, protecting their health and their long-term financial stability,” the governor added.
I would rather see payments getting people back to work than to see people on unemployment being given a free check every month to continue sitting at home.
