Thousand of Vermonters are still unable to get their unemployment checks.

The Labor Department says another 13,000 Vermonters applied for unemployment last week, bringing the total to 78,000 since mid-March.

Codie Salvador, 27, of Jeffersonville, is just one of many who have applied for benefits and can't get through to the Vermont Department of Labor to find out what's going on.

Gov. Phil Scott apologized for the delay during his last press conference and says he's taking responsibility for the problem.

We asked Salvador what she thinks that should include.

"I think that they should help the Department of Labor figure out a new system because he did say that he's going to work on it and things are going to get better, but nothing seems to be getting better," she said.
