Unemployed Receive Benefits Extension

Thank you, President Bush, for signing into law a bill that will extend, by at least seven weeks, unemployment beneifts to America’s unemployed workers in all states.

With the economic situation in the US becoming increasingly worse, unemployed workers will greatly benefit from this extension of their unemployment benefits.

An AFL-CIO blog article reports that, “Together with the 13 weeks of extended federal benefits enacted in June, this means unemployed workers will have access to up to 20 weeks of federal extended benefits in all states, and 33 weeks in high unemployment states.”
