EDD's new software has thousands of defects, some 'critical'

"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."
