TULSA, Okla. -

The second day of in-person meetings this week with the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission is happening July 23.

The meetings are expected to start at 7 a.m.

OESC said they are only serving people with a pass and those passes were handed out Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

The OESC said they are out of passes for this week's events.

They said they expect to serve nearly 2,000 people in Tulsa over the next couple days.

One of those people is Les Donaldson, who showed up and got a ticket to Wednesday's event.

He said he came out after trying to get a response over the phone and through emails for nearly three months with no response and had the documents to prove it.

“It's frustrating because like I said in March, I just lost my wife - so that on top of this and wondering where the next meal is going to come from is pretty hard and stressful. This is just adding to the cake," Donaldson said.

Les said after his meeting it was a step in the right direction and he quickly got most of his concerns taken care of.

These meetings will take place today from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for this with a pass and tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
