WSJ:Number of the Week: Millions Set to Lose Unemployment Benefits

Post by Guest on Sat Apr 30, 2011 9:52 am

5.5 million: Americans unemployed and not receiving benefits.

The job market may be on the mend, but that’s not much consolation to millions of Americans facing a frightening deadline: the end of their unemployment benefits.

Many Americans, though, are simply running out of time. As of March, about 14 million people were unemployed and looking for work, according to the household survey. At the time the survey was done, about 8.5 million were receiving some kind of unemployment payments, according to the Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration. That leaves about 5.5 million people unemployed without benefits, up 1.4 million from a year earlier.

Wow! If the Wall St. Journal is reporting this, it is going to get a lot of national attention.

Thank you WSJ!

diffrince This really is a good sign that America is taking notice. Let's just hope that other large main stream media outlets start reporting the facts. If the WSJ can do it, with their deep conservative agenda, others will follow.

Just a note, on CNN Money today, Ali Velshi spoke once again in his "XYZ" segment about the crisis of long term unemployment and focused on the new NJ law that prohibits discrimination against the LTU in their advertising.

There are no video clips yet, but the segment will be rebroadcast tomorrow at 1:55 pm, Eastern, on CNN.
