Rapid Response Services For Laid Off Workers!

For those that have been experiencing trouble getting a job, still, I’ve gone to the department of Labor to bring forth the information below.

It seems that there are services that are geared towards getting people re-employed in a timly manner. The service is called “Rapid Response”. It offered via One-Stop Career Centers/Workforce. I’m sure that for those that are still having trouble getting a job in this rough economy, the mentioning of this service may aid in the placement of a job.

Good Luck!

Being laid off from your job is one of the most traumatic events you can experience in life. However, you do not need to go through this transition alone. Working with your employer, there are services and resources that can be brought to you, on site at your company prior to your layoff date. These services and resources are part of a program called Rapid Response, which will customize services and resources to your needs and the needs of your company, with a goal of getting you back to work as soon as possible and minimize the disruptions on your life that a layoff will cause. The Rapid Response team will provide you the means to maintain an income (unemployment insurance), information on health insurance options, access to skills upgrading and training resources, and much more. This service is extremely valuable: the earlier services are begun, the better. Services and resources vary, so be sure to attend Rapid Response sessions when they are offered so that you are aware of the full array of benefits for which you may be eligible.

Minimum wage the new living wage!

Despite the current struggle in regards to our nations economic crisis, let it be known that it seems to negate the problem with homes being foreclosed one may take a look at our current living wage standard.

An assumption taken against the cost of living that is expected out of a general area, it is safe to say that as a Floridian I’m assumed to make roughly $16.68 an hour to reside in the state at a comfortable level. Meaning that all my bills are being paid on time and that I have not neglected and of my expected obligations. One can find descriptions of both minimum wages and living wages as the amount a full-time worker should be paid to earn a decent living, to meet basic family needs, to avoid poverty, and so on. The minimum wage is often described as a “starting wage” or a “wage floor” or “a wage to protect the most vulnerable workers,” in contrast to the living wage as a wage that can sustain a family.

As job loss is continuing to present itself as a hassle, the expected criteria that goes along with the interpretation of a fair and consistent wage agreement will soon be tested. With the introduction of a new president we as a nation also received an incentive as the minimum wage went up as well in the beginning of the year; however, with our nation lacking resources what will the new projection of a wage agreement be by the time this crisis is resolved?

Low Income Housing Tax Credit.

Dear Mr. Shaw:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the Low Income Housing Tax Credit. I share your concerns about the availability of safe and affordable housing in Florida.

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit program provides an incentive for the investment of private equity into affordable housing for low-income Americans. Over the past 22 years, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program has helped to create more than 2 million affordable apartments for low-income families.

I believe we must act to help those most at-risk in this receding economy. That is why I voted for HR.1, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This legislation, also known as the economic stimulus package, includes a $2.2 billion investment in the low-income housing tax credit program to be made available to State housing agencies. These funds will offer an additional incentive for the creation of more affordable housing in Florida.

I will keep your views in mind as we continue to find solutions that address the economic difficulties facing Florida and the nation. Please don’t hesitate to contact me again.

Sincerely,
Senator Bill Nelson
