Millions of unemployed in America stopped getting benefits

Millions of people in the US stopped receiving unemployment benefits from Monday. There are only a handful of economic support programs left for those financially affected by the coronavirus pandemic that came a year and a half ago.

On Monday, two important programs being given to unemployed people in America were stopped. One of these is unemployment benefits given to self-employed people and temporary workers. Through another program, help was being given to such people who have been unemployed for more than six months. The Joe Biden administration’s $300 weekly profit also ended Monday.

An estimated 89 lakh people will lose all or some of the benefits.

Although the White House has asked states to continue making up to $300 a week in benefits through stimulus money, no state has so far opted to do so.

Many states have already pulled out of the federal program because companies complained they were not getting enough people to hire.
