Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (04/05/12) John Schmid
Wisconsin does not meet the federally required threshold for
long-term unemployment benefits, because its unemployment rate
fell to 6.9% in February. As a result, 7,761 state residents will
lose their extended jobless benefits on April 7, and the maximum
number of weeks that unemployed residents can claim benefits will
drop from 86 to 73. The National Employment Law Project says
Wisconsin will fall another tier on June 1 if its unemployment
rate remains under 7%, meaning that benefits can be claimed for
only 60 weeks. Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio,
Oregon, South Carolina, and Tennessee also will lose extended
benefits, according to NELP.
