Extended Benefits Expire In These States Next

Extended Benefits Expire In These States Next


The federal Extended Benefits program, which provides up to 20 weeks of
benefits for long-term unemployed who burn through both state benefits
and federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation, expired this month in
North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

The next states where the program will expire are Alaska, Alabama and
Kansas, according to Mike Evangelist of the National Employment Law
Project.

Analyzing state unemployment data released Tuesday
by the U.S. Department of Labor, Evangelist predicts EB payments will
stop in those states on May 14 unless local lawmakers take action.

Payments will stop in June in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C.
and New Jersey (though legislation to prevent the cutoff there is on the
governor's desk).

I have been emailing lawmakers again this morning. This time I am begging not asking them to please pass NC look back law. I am so worried about this, I am freaking out now. I have never been in a situation this desperate.

Mya11 feel free to post the contact info for those you are emailing. With 37,000 losing benefits in NC I am sure many viewers may help out .

I suggest faxing and calling as well.

Frankly, I'm surprised that the programs have lasted as long as they have. Last year I wrote about the farce - warning people that were receiving UI benefits NOT to assume they'd actually be extended for an entire year as December's legislation falsely assured. The reason, and the authors know it, relates to the way unemployment statistics are compiled, and the effect the rate has on emergency programs, i.e., everything you receive after the first 26 weeks. In other words, it was very predictable that a large number of people would be exhausting their emergency benefits at which time they are no longer considered unemployed!! They are moved to the "employed" or "given up looking" status which effectively lowers the unemployment rate and cancels the emergency funding programs.

As everyone knows, there hasn't been any real change in the jobs situation - perhaps some seasonal adjustment, part-time hiring and temp contracting - although corporations are still encouraged via tax incentives to outsource!! The worst part is that they are now bragging that the number of people applying for UI benefits is decreasing "which is a good sign." Is it?? Ever heard the expression, last on, first fired? If and when we go back to work we will be the first ones to be laid off - without accumulating enough hours to qualify for benefits. Now do you see why all the jobs' stats are false and there are so few applying for benefits?? If you don't, please respond, because once the scam is exposed, they won't be able to continue feeding us their snake oil. Obama is just as slick as Willie - the working class needs REAL representation, and we won't insist on it until we get it that Congress represents the aristocrats NOT those that have to work to survive. Call me cynical, but you must have the courage to look at the REAL cynics and the interests they serve.

You might also ask yourself why Obama would also have agreed to a cut in workers' social security payroll deduction when the program is supposedly in trouble? Once again, slick Willie's crew - look who "Obama" appointed - will get to accomplish what the Republicans have been trying to do for years - privatize social security so the banksters can harvest more of your savings. Look at the Deficit Reduction Commissioners, read what they've recommended, and then tell me who their recommendations serve. Come on, don't just listen to their sponsors, look for yourself. America will NEVER be the same.

I am blown away by the shifty marketing propaganda which has gotten the sheeples to accept that the unfathomly rich and their stateless transnational corporate welfare queens should not contribute anything to this country that has made them what they are. Hell, the globalists aren't even providing jobs anymore yet we still give them a free pass...absofreakinglutely amazing. Don't you get it that cheap labor, cheap resources, no environmental regulations, tax incentives, subsidies, etc., increases profitability and ultimately increases dividends, in other words, increases the "salary" of the investor class, aka, those that don't work for their living??? The only thing that the working class gets out of it is the bill....and worthless money if they've got any left. Look abroad - the trick's been played before.. Money isn't what rich people accumulate so they don't give a rat's ass about inflation.

I went NC General Assembly for email addresses. I do not have access to fax. I think they may be closed for Good Friday. Thanks

More & more people being cut off of benefits, how high are they going to let the #'s get before they do something to end the suffering.

Even states that have adopted the 3 year look back, people need to keep an eye on their states rate so they know before the rate gets so low that they no longer qualify for that reason,since they keep dropping the rates all the time.

I'm really getting scared for what could start happening around the U.S.

My friend just told me that a hearing will be held in Raleigh at General Assembly 2 pm on Wednesday. Anyone close by stop in and tell your story. Bev is not backing down and the Repubs are determined to show who is boss. Looks like they both love taking their frustration out on people who are down on their luck. I am scared of these crazy people.
