New Committee Report: Two Million Workers to Lose Unemployment Insurance in December Without Action

Post by DesperateInRI on Mon Nov 12, 2012 1:36 pm

“While our primary concern remains growing more jobs, we should provide reasonable assistance to those actively seeking work, yet still unable to secure a job.”

The new report, prepared by the Ways and Means Committee Democratic Staff, includes a variety of data highlighting the need to continue federal unemployment benefits, including:

State-by-state estimates of the over 2.1 million workers losing benefits in December if Congress fails to act.

An analysis of long-term unemployment, which remains near historic levels, with five million Americans jobless for six months or longer.

A review of how UI benefits both reduce poverty and promote economic growth and job creation.

An analysis showing that unemployment benefits have already been reduced by an average of 31% compared to one year ago.


“Everyone's moving on without me, into a world I don't understand.”

Even if this were, by some miracle, to happen, I'm not sure I would qualify anymore. I'm currently starting Tier 4, which runs out in early January. This is Tier 4 from my 2010 claim. I was reverted back to finish out those extensions after my 2012 claim (26 weeks) ended. They tell me it might be possible for me to go to Tier 1 for the 2012 claim after I finish Tier 4, but no one can say for sure. (I mean, assuming a further extension is granted.)

Therefore, I assume I will be receiving nothing after the end of December, and unless I have a job, will lose my home. Glorious.
