Ramos. “We have a situation in Lorain where laid-off steel workers are coming to the end of their current lay-offs only to see the mills laying off more people. This will have a direct impact on my constituents and the entire community. Slashing eligibility and increasing the waiting period will harm vulnerable working families as they navigate a tough time and search for a new job.”¿
