While joblessness persists, help for the unemployed wanes

first_imgThe number of Vermonters in the labor forceâ employed and unemployedâ decreased last month after rising steadily since last July, according to seasonally adjusted data released today by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.The unemployment rate ticked down in March, even though fewer Vermonters had jobs. Only workers who are actively looking for work or waiting to be recalled after a layoff are considered unemployed and counted in the labor force. Discouraged workers who have stopped looking are not counted. Fewer jobless claimsVermont had the fourth-lowest unemployment rate in the country in March, even as more than 4,500 workers filed new claims for unemployment compensation. Initial unemployment claims hit a peak in December 2008, when more than 8,600 Vermonters filed. Typically, first-time jobless claims rise during the winter months and drop in the summer. The number of applicants at the peaks has declined since the recession officially ended, and the monthly average of new claims has fallen for two years. The end of extended unemployment benefitsBarring a sudden spike in unemployment, Vermonters will no longer be eligible for extended unemployment compensation after the end of this year. In the depths of the recession, jobless workers who had used up their 26 weeks of regular unemployment compensation could qualify for federal emergency unemployment compensation programs (EUC08 Tiers I-III) and a state program that together provided up to 60 weeks of additional compensation.After May, the Tier II programâ providing 14 weeks’benefitsâ will not be available in states with unemployment rates lower than 6 percent. All EUC08 programs are scheduled to expire at the end of 2012.Source: Public Assets Institute, April 20, 2012 Download the Jobs Brief in PDF.last_img read more
