In a press conference today Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the state is working on a way to auto-enroll thousands of soon-to-be furloughed Disney Cast Members into the state’s unemployment system.
On April 19th more than 70,000 soon to be furloughed Disney Cast Members will become eligible for state unemployment benefits.
In a way to combat the huge influx of applicants, Disney is working with the state to provide them with the employee data directly.
“We basically said, OK, the systems getting crushed, so we know this is coming… is there a way we can… maybe get the data directly from the employer, and then go ahead and put it through.” said DeSantis.
They are going to try to enter the data in the overnight hours when the system isn’t as busy.
The Disney workers would not be getting to jump ahead of people that have already spent time inputting their information into the system.
He confirmed, “They wouldn’t get any special place in line.”
