"In the latest in an ongoing investigation by KCRA into the state’s new unemployment department computer system, insiders tell KCRA’s Sharokina Shams that the system’s computer upgrade is a “system failure.” The error reports they supplied from just one day’s work show that more than 1,700 problems exist with the system. This is a steady increase from the initial reports of first a few hundred then close to 1500. Multiple payments, missed payments, even losing records have occurred as a result and 80-100,000 people are still waiting for their benefit checks. Meanwhile the state says the backlog has been addressed. As a result of the computer problems, for 3 straight weeks, the national jobs numbers have been skewed due to California’s inaccurate data."
