(CNN)They may not be terminating pandemic unemployment benefits like their GOP peers, but Democratic governors are also prodding Americans to go back to work amid a surging number of job openings.

More than a dozen Democrat-led states have reinstituted work search requirements, many of them in the past few weeks, according to data compiled by ZipRecruiter, a job posting site.

At least two blue states -- Connecticut and Colorado -- are also offering return-to-work bonuses for residents collecting unemployment benefits.

Instead, they are requiring out-of-work residents to resume searching for jobs -- warning that if claimants turn down suitable offers, they could lose their jobless benefits.

But now, more than 40 states, both red and blue, are requiring jobless residents to look for work or have announced plans to do so soon, according to ZipRecruiter.

Several Republican-led states, including Montana and Arizona, are also offering return-to-work bonuses, but in conjunction with the early end of pandemic benefits.
