Just like overtime paychecks, millions of families depend on these meager but important benefits to help with rent and mortgages, utility bills, food, health care and other essentials.
The plight of jobless workers is a national crisis that President Bush and his congressional allies are treating as an afterthought. Nearly 11 million unemployed workers want jobs but can't find them. That's not surprising, considering there are only 3 million new job openings, according to the most recent government report. The average job hunt for an unemployed worker lasts more than five months.
If President Bush and his congressional allies fail to
act, more than 80,000 workers will lose unemployment benefits every week.
New reports by the AFL-CIO detail how many people right
in your state are about to lose their unemployment benefits, as well as
critical facts about joblessness, health insurance coverage, poverty and
more. Take one minute to dig into this important examination of your state's
economy and how it is affecting working families. http://www.unionvoice.org/ct/o11JeFY1L72f/
