6,100 Idahoans to be Without Unemployment Benefits

BOISE — On the eve of Idaho’s latest unemployment numbers, the Department of Labor has some bad news for thousands of Idahoans receiving unemployment benefits. KTVB-Tv reports by the end of the year 6,100 Idahoans who are receiving extended unemployment benefits will no longer get that money because Congress decided not to renew those extensions. In August, Idaho’s unemployment rate was 7.4 percent. That’s down from a recession high of 8.9 percent in July 2011. As more people find work, others are faced with losing government assistance. For the fourth time in a year – extended unemployment benefits are getting scaled back.
