The news regarding workers receiving a three hundred dollar bonus has been announced for the workshare program.
It is a bonus for certain workers but, it has not been announced who will be qualified for this bonus and how it will be received.
This all comes from Governor Whitmer's plan on how she would like to spend the money, this includes child care and raising wages.
In an article from Fox 2 News called "Reparations in Detroit, a $300 bonus for Michigan workers, tree cutting in Livonia" by Veronica Meadows and Jack Nissen who elaborated on additional information regarding the bonus.
Veronica Meadows and Jack Nissen stated "Employers signed up for the State's Workshare Program are currently the only businesses eligible to tack on a $300 bonus on top of an employee's weekly wage. Whitmer is currently working with lawmakers to expand access to the bonus that wouldn't only include businesses hiring back employees it let go.
Whitmer called the plan a "bridge" for helping get people working again. The U.S. and Michigan are currently in the throes of a hiring shortage that has left many businesses with too many open positions. That's made keeping businesses open difficult for some employers."
It is a breath of fresh air to hear that workers are going to receive a bonus for their hard work and determination.
Whitmer will be able to elaborate on her plan regarding how the money will be spent, it can only go up from here on the positive side.
