The jobless may soon find their state unemployment check is not in the mail.
A growing number of states are looking to cut back on jobless benefits to minimize the increase in unemployment taxes businesses pay. State officials are concerned that these tax hikes could deter companies from hiring.
Some states, such as Florida and Arkansas, are debating reducing the number of weeks that the jobless can collect state unemployment. Others, including Indiana, want to limit the number of people eligible for benefits.
As more and more states are following suit on cutting back on State unemployment benefits and EB, it is urgent that EVERYONE get involved and contact your Representatives and Senators to support HR 589, which will add 14 additional weeks to Tier 1. Even it your state isn't currently cutting back on benefits, YOU COULD BE NEXT.
Support HR 589 for ALL Americans who are unemployed!
Our numbers grow by the week. All we hear about is how this and that will stop job growth. The 99ers are wondering when job growth will start!

These bastards stole this money out of the fund accounts when things were going good. Indiana had a huge surplus so they took it and cut back taxes on employers.Where did the surplus go ? Of course, now it is OUR PROBLEM.
