Does Pa.’s new unemployment system work? It depends who you ask.

Two days after Pennsylvania launched a new unemployment filing system, tens of thousands of previously enrolled people have still not filed claims.

How many of those claimants found jobs, are waiting to file, or are blocked from submitting claims due to technical difficulties is not clear.

Users poured their frustrations out on the Department of Labor and Industry’s Facebook page on Thursday morning.

“Tried several ways to get through, [but] this system is not working !!! Been trying to get any help at all !!,” posted a commenter in Olyphant.

“No Problems until new system. Says I have to wait a week!!! That’s past your Saturday deadline!!!!,” posted a commenter in Erie.
