Getting through to an unemployment office seems to be getting harder and harder. One unemployed worker told me, "I had to call more than 20 times to get through to my state unemployment office! I just sat there in front of the TV and called over and over."
Another commented on blog post about unemployment being impacted by the government shutdown, saying, "I've sent two emails to IDES and have yet to hear back. Calling the number results in a recorded message that says all lines are busy and to call back. I don't know what else to do at this point. I'm so very frustrated by this!"
