State Rep. Kathy Crawford today called on the governor to make aggressive staffing increases within the state’s unemployment insurance agency.
“Michigan workers are in crisis in the wake of small business closures across the state,” said Crawford, of Novi. “The unemployment insurance agency does not have the bandwidth to keep up with the number of people in need of support.

Crawford said she has been in close contact with representatives from the Oakland County unemployment office to ensure local workers are addressed swiftly. She also encourages residents who need help navigating the unemployment insurance system for the first time to call 1-866-500-0017.
