“It’s getting to the place now that our workers, these self-employed professionals are very concerned that they are going to get evicted, or they’re going to miss mortgage payments that result in foreclosure of their homes," said State Senator Mary Boren.

Oklahoma City, Okla. (KOKH) — During a protest at the state capital Monday, people fed up with waiting for unemployment benefits went inside to talk with lawmakers.

Many say they're having difficulty getting a call back from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission.

For some people, extra assistance is needed to file a claim and need to speak with a "tier two" employee who is qualified to help them.

Questions like, "Where's the money?" and "Tier two, where are you?" were written on protesters' signs.
