PHOENIX — More than half a million Arizonans have filed for unemployment since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The system meant to help these people has been overwhelmed and beset with issues, leaving residents struggling to make ends meet.

In our first virtual town hall hosted by investigative reporters Joe Ducey and Courtney Holmes, we sat down with Nina and Amanda for their advice on some of the biggest issues facing Arizonans as they try to navigate unemployment and making ends meet during an uncertain time.
