Unemployment Benefits Running Out

unemployment 385 Unemployment Benefits Running Out

Congress has failed to extend unemployment benefits for millions of jobless workers by Tuesday’s deadline.

As a result, the state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation says just over ten-thousand Nevadans will have their benefits cut off during December, and even more will lose their benefits in the coming weeks unless an extension is passed. Although Nevada’s unemployment rate fell in October, it is still high at 14-point-two percent. The DETR is still urging those losing their benefits to continue filing weekly claims in case Congress approves more jobless funding.

    But remember what is important to President Obama: “Congress is poised to give President Barack Obama – along with his wife, Michelle – a congressional victory as the House takes up legislation to push greasy foods off the school lunch line and sugary drinks out of vending machines.

    The president met with liberal Democrats Tuesday in a last minute push to unite his party in support of a $4.5 billion child nutrition bill that would improve lunches in schools and expand feeding programs for low-income students.”
