ABI Advocates for One-week Waiting Period
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
ABI and its members know and experience Iowa’s workforce shortage more than any other organization. Currently in Iowa, there are more jobs available than people to fill the jobs, including those individuals on unemployment. ABI has long advocated for ensuring the unemployment trust fund is for those individuals who lose their jobs through no fault of their own and should not be used to pay for job training or other policy decisions not related to an employee’s employment status. As part of the workforce priority, ABI seeks to support legislation that ensures Iowa’s trust fund encourages people to get back to work and increase their skills.
