Update! TWC, again, suspends job searches for those collecting unemployment benefits

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) on Tuesday said that it is suspending a plan that would require those individuals who are receiving unemployment benefits to take part in weekly work searches.

The TWC had suspended the work search mandate earlier this year when stay-at-home orders were initiated, and the state was dealing with a weak overall economy.
