Florida’s unemployment website will be down for 3 days as state tries to make payments faster

On Monday, only 6% of Floridians had been paid unemployment, even though some have been applying due to coronavirus-related job losses since March 15. But Thursday, that figure was up to almost 22%, the clearest indication yet that Florida was finally making headway in getting money out to about 700,000 Floridians who have submitted unique claims.
