In August, Texas passed legislation that would make it easier for people to apply to receive welfare benefits in the state.
The law was designed to encourage businesses and individuals to hire and train people, and help Texas’ economy recover from the recession.
But the state’s unemployment rate has soared since then, and the state has added more than 20,000 people since the law took effect, putting pressure on its already stretched unemployment benefits system.
Now, some people in Texas are seeking help to help them recover from this downturn.
“I’m in a place right now where it’s hard to find a job,” said Kaitlin O’Neill, a single mother of two who lost her job last week and is now seeking help with her rent and utility bills.
“There’s nothing to do but worry about what I’m going to pay in rent, and what my credit cards are going to cost, and where I’m headed.”
The problem is that Texas unemployment is so high that many people can’t find work.
While many people receive benefits because of the law, some are eligible only because they have a job.
That means many people who have jobs are also not in a position to work because they can’t make ends meet.
Many people who are able to work may have difficulty finding a job because they’ve been laid off, or may have been laid-off but are now seeking work, according to the Texas Department of Job and Family Services.
A recent survey by the Texas Employment Development Department found that 22% of people receiving unemployment benefits were working part-time or unemployed because they lacked a full-time job.
While some of the workers interviewed said they are still working full-timers because they are unable to find full-term work, many are not getting a job at all because they don’t have a good credit history.
The problem with this is that they’re in a bad spot because they aren’t getting enough hours in their jobs, said Julie M. Dominguez, a spokesperson for the state Department of Employment Development.
“This is an extremely challenging time for people, particularly those who are on benefits,” Domingues said.
“The vast majority of people who receive benefits are looking for a full time job, but many of those who have lost their jobs and are looking to work find it very difficult.”
In some cases, people are able use a combination of temporary and full-year work in order to pay their bills, according the Texas A&M University Center for Labor Research and Education.
In other cases, some work-study programs have helped people find work, but some people who want to get a job are having trouble finding jobs.
“We’ve been seeing a significant increase in the number of people getting jobs through these programs,” Domanos said.
A&M researchers said the program helps more people than it cuts because it can help people get a temporary job.
However, the study also found that people who did not participate in the job training program were less likely to get hired for a job than those who participated in it.
Domanus said that the program is “not necessarily designed to help people find a full or part- time job.”
In addition, the Texas Job Center reported that more than 7,000 jobs were created for people who had been unemployed for more than six months and who were looking for jobs.
Domenos said the number has been increasing, but it is “very, very low.”
She said the center is now working with a variety of government agencies to provide help to people who need it most.
She said that while there are ways to get assistance from other states and the federal government, the problem is getting more complicated by the fact that people are applying for benefits in Texas.
“Texas has a problem with the law and the law is working against it,” Domenes said.
The unemployment benefits law was passed by a Republican-controlled legislature in 2010.
But in 2016, a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers took the legislation to the statehouse, and passed a new version that included an extension of the unemployment benefits program.
Domes said the new bill passed in 2016 “didn’t have any of the provisions that were included in the original bill,” and has not been revised since.
“When the state was passing the original version of the bill, the House of Representatives passed it in 2015.
That was a year before the recession hit, and I don’t know how they got it through the state legislature,” said Representative Ed Hernandez, a Republican who represents Dallas-Fort Worth.
Hernandez said that he supported the original legislation because it was designed with the goal of boosting the economy, and was passed after Texas was already experiencing a significant economic downturn.
Hernandez’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
But a spokesperson with the Department of Workforce Development said that it has been in discussions with the Texas State Conference of Governments, the Department, the Association of Texas School Boards, the Austin Chamber of Commerce, and other
