Thursday, November 7th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

On Dec. 31, 2013, the federally funded Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program is slated to expire. According to a report  from the National Employment Law Project, approximately 1.3 million jobless workers will lose their benefits immediately at the start of 2014. Another 850,000 workers will exhaust their regular unemployment insurance in March and won’t be able to take advantage of the expanded benefits.
