"During the month of September, “permanent” unemployment claims climbed to 3.8 million Americans. Permanent unemployment claims are those that were previously furloughed or temporarily laid off, which have turned into full-time unemployment."
About the video:
"This 3.8 million number is staggeringly high, especially when compared with the 1.3 million people on long-time unemployment earlier this year.
As of last month, the amount of people currently collecting unemployment benefits in America is nearly 13 million people, which is up from the 6 million people claiming unemployment before this thing out there got started.
Susan Houseman, VP and research director at the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, explained: “We’re still at a high level of layoffs in the economy. The new job losses will, by and large, be perceived as permanent.”
These stunning statistics once again spotlight the need for additional stimulus funds and extended enhanced unemployment benefits to help millions of Americans get through this rocky 2020.
Meanwhile, the United States isn’t the only country suffering from incredibly high unemployment rates.
In the UK, the unemployment rate climbed to 4.5%, which is the highest it’s been in 3 years.
Jonathan Athow, from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), explained: "Overall employment is down about half a million since this began and there are particular groups who seem to be most affected, young people in particular."
He continued: "[Of those out of work] about 300,000 are aged 16-24, so about 60% of the fall in employment... that's really disproportionate."
Much like in America, I hope that these unemployed citizens can find employment soon and try to get back to some form of normalcy.
Finally, I have good news on the time period when one state can expect to receive their weekly $300 LWA unemployment benefits.
Congratulations to Alaska, where it has been announced that unemployment claimants can expect to see their weekly $300 payments starting next week!
Cathy Muñoz, from the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, explained: “The eligibility period is for six weeks and will be from the week ending Aug. 1 until the week ending Sept. 5. The payments will be made on a weekly basis, and not as one lump sum.”
It’s about time y’all got your President Trump FEMA unemployment benefits, let me know in the comments when everyone from The Last Frontier gets their money!
If you still have not applied for unemployment benefits in your state, what are you waiting for?
Visit your state’s PUA or UI website, provide the necessary employment documents, or lack thereof, and let them know that you are out of work due to that thing out there.
For your time and effort, you could be eligible for a backdated unemployment check for more than $10,000.
For all of the gig-workers, self employed, independent contractors, 1099 workers, even side hustlers and freelancers, you are eligible for the PUA, even though you never paid into traditional unemployment insurance.
These incredible government benefits end on December 31st, so don’t miss out on your chance to collect these life saving funds before time runs out!
Check with your state’s unemployment and PUA guidelines, be honest and tell the truth, and you can get the money that you deserve in your bank account within days of approval.
Thank you so much for watching, please keep sharing your experiences with the PUA and unemployment benefits in your state."
