PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) Today, Wendy Bell had Pennsylvania state representative Ryan Warner on her show on Newsradio 1020 KDKA to discuss Gov. Tom Wolf’s lack of response to the unemployment issues that have hit the state.

Rep. Warner wrote a letter to Gov. Wolf to give some kind of response about the unemployment rates and how many people have not yet received any money from the state.

Pennsylvania with over 2 million people currently on unemployment, is the second highest rate in the country, behind only California.

“People are at their wits' end,” Warner said. “In Pennsylvania, you have 2 million people seeking unemployment, seven weeks without a dime in their bank account.”

Much of the frustration stems from how Gov. Wolf does not address an issue that effects a large number of people in the state.

“Our governor takes filtered questions from a staff member where the press can’t even reply to it.”

This is not the first time rep. Warner has sent a letter to Gov. Wolf, and Warner has never gotten a response.

“I’ve sent multiple letters,” Warner said. “I’ve gotten no response. You would think that elected officials, the ones closest to the people, would get some updates… there’s nothing.”

According to rep. Warner, people are not happy with how Gov. Wolf has been going about and attempting to help the people of the commonwealth.

“People are fed up,” Warner said. “When state liquor stores can sell curbside goods, but your hometown main street stores can’t… If it’s good enough for government to sell it, why isn’t it good enough for the people of Pennsylvania.”
