http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/07/sequestration-unemployment_n_2827442.html?utm_hp_ref=unemploymentThe sequestration cut affects federal benefits known as Emergency Unemployment Compensation, which take effect when workers use up the six months of benefits typically provided by states. (The state benefits are not affected by the federal budget cuts.) Roughly 2 million workers currently receive the federal benefits.
The U.S. Department of Labor is still crafting formal guidance for states on how to put the reduction into effect. So far, different states are approaching the situation in their own ways.
