Jobs


As you know, Governor Baker has declared a state of emergency. As a result the MA State has ask us to close all MassHire Career Centers throughout the state and to service all clients remotely. After a few days of resolving some new procedures, the MassHire North Shore Career Center Office has been able to adapt to the new situation.

Homelyn Augustin and I can service all Veterans requiring assistance  remotely. Our primary means of communication is through our work e-mails and video conferencing. Any phone calls to our work numbers are forwarded to our home locations. We will check our voice mails daily and will return your calls as soon as possible.

Unemployment:
 
The Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) has begun disbursement of Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) benefits to Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) claimants, who will receive benefits beginning Sept. 2, 2020. Payments are expected in claimant accounts by Saturday, Sept. 5. For those who are eligible for LWA through the standard unemployment assistance program accessed through UI Online, benefits are expected to be disbursed on or before Sept. 15, 2020.
  
Per FEMA’s authorization, the grant will fund an additional $300 weekly payment to those who are eligible for at least $100 in weekly unemployment benefits for the three weeks ending 8/1/20, 8/8/20, and 8/15/20.

MA unemployment rate has dropped inn August to 11.3% from a high of 17.7% in June. With the supplemental grant money ending and unemployment extensions starting to expire for those individuals who had filed their unemployment claims late last years, we should start seeing a larger number in individuals seeking employment in the coming months. If you fail into this category, just remember that the job market starts top slow down as we approach the holiday season and does not begin to pick-up until mid Janunuary.
