With many employers reporting difficulty in finding enough workers to hire, a number of states plan to end the $300 weekly federal unemployment benefits next month.

According to CNN, that list includes Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Tennessee, all Republican-led states that that plan to end the program sometime in June.

According to the U.S. Labor Department, the U.S. had 8.1 million job openings in March but hired just 6 million workers – despite nearly 10 million Americans claiming to be looking for work.

There are rumors, but no confirmation that Florida could be headed in the same direction after DeSantis told Floridians out of work to start looking for work. They will have to prove that they are seeking employment in order to keep their unemployment benefits.
