Iowans on unemployment will lose their additional 300-dollar federal unemployment payments starting Monday.  Iowans stand on both sides of the issue.  Some say Governor Kim Reynolds is ending unemployment benefits for political gain, while others say Iowans on unemployment need to be more focused on getting a job.  Business Centric Technology says there are currently about 15 percent more jobs available across the country than before the coronavirus pandemic.
