Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says the state is monitoring then possibility of assisting furloughed Disney cast members auto-enroll into the states unemployment database.
Cast members have been outraged by Florida‘s unemployment site, which has been bogged down over the last few weeks as businesses continue to lay-off workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz first alluded to the fact that Governor DeSantis was working with his team to take the pressure off of Disney cast members and auto-enroll them.
In a press conference Tuesday, Governor DeSantis said he’s open to auto-enrolling employees’ information into the system. He also mentioned cast members will not be given priority in the system, they will just be auto-enrolled due to the site’s failures.
Last week, STC announced a furlough agreement with Disney for the 43,000 thousand cast member it represents.
The furlough goes into effect April 19.
