What you can do for Missourians this week:
Call Gov. Parson (573) 751-3222 and tell him to forgive the state unemployment overpayments! Through no fault of their own, Missourians who applied for unemployment received overpayments and the Governor is now threatening to garnish wages right before the holiday season. Punishing Missourians for mistakes made by the state is wrong, tell Gov. Parson to forgive the overpayments and let families enjoy their holiday season.
