Ohio Governor Mike Dewine
United States of America

Self Employed workers are currently NOT ELIGIBLE for UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS. Because the Government is forcing people stay in their homes, it is also stopping most self-employed citizens from earning a living. Those same self-employed workers are not eligible for unemployment like everyone else. If you're going to keep individuals from earning their income, at least allow them to be compensated like everyone else. The self-employed workforce is not to blame for their loss of income.

We the undersigned call on Gov. Mike Dewine for IMMEDIATE Unemployment Benefits for the Self-Employed workforce that is unable to earn income during this SHUTDOWN! YOU'RE THE ONE that forced them into unemployment, so YOU'RE THE ONE that need to allow them IMMEDIATE unemployment benefits! NOT LATER -- NOW! Their families are in need just like everyone else!
