Iowa Republicans are Delivering a Gut Punch to Iowa Workers

The Iowa House and Senate have passed different versions of unemployment cuts but haven’t agreed on a single bill.  The House moved the original unemployment cuts forward with a one week waiting period removed and sent it to the Senate.  The Senate put the one week waiting period back in and sent it back to the House.  Over the next 10 years, the bills will take $750 million to $1 billion from working Iowans who lose their job through no fault of their own while they transition to a new job.
 
All Democrats voted against the cuts in both Chambers and only 2 Republicans in each Chamber joined the Democrats in opposition: House (McClintock, Graber), Senate (Nunn, Reichman).
 
Please reach out to the Legislators who voted against these cuts and thank them for their commitment to Iowa workers.  The bill includes cutting the unemployment benefits from 26 weeks to 16 weeks and institutes a 1 week waiting period before unemployment benefits can be applied for.
