DWD Still Failing Wisconsin

It’s been nine months and they still aren’t close to handling the workload.

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development says it’s shrinking the backlog of unpaid unemployment claims, however a second backlog of denied applicants appealing the decision is starting to swell.

In an interview last month, DWD Transition Director Amy Pechacek told the I-Team there were approximately 12,000 claimants waiting on an appeal.

The I-Team received more than a dozen emails from unemployed residents who felt their claim was unfairly denied. Some of them said their hearings are being set months out. Others are still waiting just to get a date, including Dan Cacciotti of Racine.

    It’s disgusting that a slim majority of Wisconsinites voted for this idiot who isn’t even capable of running a day care.  Evers is what Trump would be if Trump hit his head as hard as Gary Busey.
