Inquirer, 5/7/21 Marching on behalf of the unemployed – Protesters gather outside Gov. Tom Wolf’s regional office in Center City on Thursday to demand an end to what they say is an unemployment compensation crisis. They say nearly 290,000 claimants are waiting for their eligibility to be determined and thousands more have had their benefits improperly halted. “The state needs to pay these benefits to people without waits of weeks and months,” said Adrienne Berry, one of the organizers.
