Jobless Benefits Argued** 0 . · _ - : - -- - r a C upon con- r-but of · the how the the are Voters will '.have two Initiative measures' concerning unemploy jnent benefits to cast ballots In'the 1 Nov. 7 "election. Both cern thep-same" general 'subject,each Involves a different phase unemployment benefits.' The first' will be on the ballot - -with numbers ,314--315 -'for yea and no vote. It concerns long and how much those unemployed may draw under -unemployment -'insurance carried by employer*. At the present time, .ansunem- ployed person may draw up to $20 perl-week for' 12 .weeks of unemployment.. The initiative measure ·would "raisei the amount.'ta- $25 per ·weelc.and-lengthen toe time to 26 weeks. Proponents 'of this act declare that toe present law does not provide adequate income for sufficient time. They point to records which show Arizona 1 to. be far down '"" list among' other "states - in length -V of, time ^tne benefits paid. They contend that in ^averaging · economic and employment conditions, over a period of years, 12 weeks is insufficient-time to find other suitable, employment They also contend that $20 a week, plus 52 a week for not more than three children is 1 not sufficient Income for a family while the breadwinner is unemployed. Says taw Abused 'Opponents . c o n t e n d that, to lengthen toe period merely lengthens the time that many ' persons .may live without working, a-'id that this law Is abused too much ·now.' For example, these opponents assert that while the law; is 'Intended to help those laid' off because of economic conditions, it has been Interpreted so. that the -benefits are payable · for anyone who 'quits or strikes. Lengthening ; the-benefits time does not correct 'this"'abuse, they.assert,' '. · ,. As'to increasing toe amountsrop- -.ponents'' cite the- fact that this to- '.gether with toe longer time adds 'to toe objecions and would increase costs to employers by 20 per cent ^-an addition to an already high 'Cost of doing business for the average employer of four or five per- .·:sons. ·'; The second unemployment meas- -iUre concerns ' adding agricultural "workers to toe list of types o£ ^workers who can receive, unemploy inent benefits. .^·Proponents of this measure ask 'the pointed question .of why.any · : group of. workers should be exclud- ;ed fronva,law intended to protect ^'workers - as;,a class" against unem- ;ploympnt.
