Employment + CARES Package Information

On behalf of everyone at HireLiving, we are thinking about you, your family and career. 

Here’s some employment facts and info to help make things easier for you.

Unemployment Numbers
Another 6.6M employees were laid off or furloughed last week bringing the national unemployment # to 16.6M .

CARES Application
If you need the CARES stimulus application use the below link. Don’t try to call your local SBA or DOL office, the hold times are up to (7) days. They should create a recording like every Amazon facility in GA which states, they are not accepting calls at this time. I guess the government better not do that!

If you live outside of GA, here’s the link to find your state’s application:

CARES package of benefits may include:
  • A $1,200 stimulus check for each taxpayer earning up to $75,000.
  • Additional $600 per week, if you qualify for unemployment as well.
