Unemployed To Lose Benefits In Several States

Post by Guest on Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:45 pm

The federal Extended Benefits program, which in states with high-unemployment rates grants claimants out of work for a long period of time a final 13 to 20 weeks of benefits, will be phased out on April 7 in Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin, according to an analysis by the National Employment Law Project, a worker advocacy group.

State labor departments were notified of the changes by the U.S. Labor Department in a complex March 5 memo. States, in turn, are trying to explain what's going on to those who will no longer receive checks through the Extended Benefits program.

So scary!

I hate this bill! Why couldn't they just renew the full 99 weeks?

It was a tradeoff. In order to extend the benefits, 99 weeks had to be cut down to around 73 from what I understand.

Its really terrible, there are so many long term unemployed that still need those 99 weeks. Talk about denial, this government is knee deep in it!!

It is horrible and should never have happened! It not have hurt them to extend UI benefits for the full 99 weeks until there really is a so called "Recovery!"

This is a joke. I live in Ma and have a job for almost a year now. I've sent out tons of resumes thinking that it's easier to get a job with a job. Needless to say I'm still at same "job".

I've been "temp" for just over a year - there are several other temps working at the same place...some much longer than I've been there. I've tried to find another job that's permanent, but to no avail.

My co-workers who have been there forever KNOW what's going on - we all talk about it occasionally - but are in denial about how things really are with the economy. They're afraid it could be them who's laid off next. They know finding a job at their age - some in their fifties - is tough in today's market.



Don't get me wrong, I'm very grateful for the job I have, but I'm working very hard at a fraction of what I used to make AND still "temp."
