Governor Doug Ducey announced a new plan Thursday to get Arizonans back to work. Ducey says the state will no longer be taking the $300 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, and instead offer a one-time bonus to returning workers, along with child care support, educational opportunities and rental assistance. The state will offer a $2,000 Back to Work bonus for full-time eligible workers, and $1,000 for part-time workers, with a goal of getting as many Arizonans as possible to rejoin the workforce by Labor Day. To qualify for the bonus, a person must have already filed for unemployment benefits, must also make $25 and hour or less at their new job and must start working by Labor Day. The state will stop taking federal money on Saturday, July 10th.
