I feel the legislation is fairly self-explanatory. The unemployment rate of the Midwest was at 9% when this was written, now it is under 6%, which is great. However, many employees may see a pink slip following the end of the holidays. This bill will help the chronically and recently unemployed be able to adapt to the changing jobs market.
