On the same day we get Michigan’s latest jobless report, there’s some new information on the number of people who have already lost – as well as those who are about to lose – their jobless benefits.
WWJ’s Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick says the numbers are staggering.
According to Norm Isotalo of Michigan’s Unemployment Office: In “September 2010, we estimate that 47,000 workers will exhaust their unemployment benefits. In October, it’s gonna be 48,900. In November: 46,700; December: 45,000. In January: 62,600.”
“Will it bottom out after that,” Skubick asked. “That does seem to be the peak,” Isotalo responded.
However, if Congress extends jobless benefits, those numbers will be saved. And, if that should happen, you can rely on WWJ Newsradio 950 to bring you all of the details.
