If you haven’t heard the latest news, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, along with many other state governors, informed the U.S. Department of Labor that Texas would opt out of further federal unemployment compensation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, effective June 26, 2021. The government will no longer pay out the additional $300 per week unemployment benefit from the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program. When the unemployment benefits boost expires, we expect many candidates to reenter the job market that may not have been open to employment opportunities while getting the extra funds from the relief package. What does this mean? It means the competition for available positions will go up in as little as 30 days from now.
