FL unemployment hotline blocked

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

TALLAHASSEE, FL (AP) - State unemployment compensation officials say some calls to their hotline have been blocked by at least one cell phone company.

They urged jobless workers Monday to use land lines if possible to call the Agency for Workforce Innovation.

Officials found out last week that Alltel and possibly other companies have blocked calls to hotlines that are frequently busy, said agency spokesman Robby Cunningham.

An Alltel spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
