"We were told to lie": Q&A with State Worker Processing Unemployment Claims



Alex Zielinski, just gotta say, you've got to be the best reporter in the Portland Metro right now. Thanks for all you do.


Alex IS amazing, and connected purposefully with the city and the people she reports for. Also, Desi is a fucking true hero. Thank you also to Jenna of Shift Accounting, for gluing this together.


Thank you, Desi Thonis. You are awesome. Thank you for speaking out (with a valuable insider's perspective) about the lack of transparency and straightforwardness at the Oregon Employment Department. And thank you for being decent and humane to the people calling you for help!
