Update to Florida's Unemployment Fiasco

I woke up to a text message this morning from my friend in Florida telling me that his status has been changed from "Pending" to "Eligible."  

He filed on 3/21.  He was approved on 4/27.  Thirty-Seven (37) days.  

I had him write letters to his Florida State Representatives ... and while he hasn't received any word back from them, writing those letters every day was cathartic for him.

Let's see if he gets the full $825 vs the $225 that he gets (federal vs state+federal).

Only time will tell...
