What Is Work Sharing, and Why Doesn't Indiana Have It?
May 21, 2020
Work-share programs help businesses avoid layoffs, especially during economically difficult times. But Indiana is not among the nearly 30 states that have it, and Governor Holcomb’s administration is taking heat for not taking advantage of a chance for the federal government to help.
We talk to a panel of experts and advocates to find out what some say a work-share program could accomplish, and how it would help both employees and employers get throughout the pandemic. And we talk about why state lawmakers have dismissed attempts to create the program for years.
