The Maine Department of Labor has been working HARD and needed a system. So here it is. Mainers seeking to file for unemployment by calling the 800 number with last names beginning with A-H should call on Monday; I-Q on Tuesday; R-Z on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be left unassigned for those who miss their alphabetical day or need to call at that time frame.  They have also more people. Here is also the link to the Me DOL website for employment benefits.
