Sen. Roger Marshall: End Federal Unemployment In Kansas
And when it comes to President Biden's American Jobs Plan, Sen. Marshall says, "the dollars are being spent in other places other than traditional infrastructure."
Sen. Roger Marshall wants Kansas to follow in Missouri's footsteps and end increased federal unemployment payments to its residents, claiming that enhanced jobless benefits incentivize people to remain unemployed. But both Yale and Chicago Federal Reserve Bank research in 2020 actually found that expanded jobless benefits resulted in a greater effort to find work.
