PROTESTORS CALL ON GOVERNOR TO DROP UNEMPLOYMENT CHALLENGES

Protestors gathered outside of the Maryland Labor Department building in Baltimore Tuesday, calling on Governor Larry Hogan to drop his legal challenge against federally enhanced jobless benefits. Over the weekend a Baltimore judge issued a temporary restraining order to stop the governor from ending the extra 300-dollars a week. Hogan’s team appealed the ruling but it was dismissed by the Court of Appeals Monday and it now heads back to Baltimore Circuit Court.¬† The next scheduled hearing is at 2 p.m. tomorrow. During yesterday’s demonstration, the Unemployed Workers Union tried, but was unable to meet with Maryland Labor Secretary Tiffany Robinson.
