Report says North Carolina may be ill-equipped for paying jobless benefits in next recession

North Carolina may be ill-prepared to adequately serve the needs of the jobless during the next recession because of the unemployment insurance benefit restrictions put in place in 2013.

Thatís the conclusion of a report released last week by the nonprofit National Employment Law Project.

The group examined how state UI programs have been weakened by benefit cuts and policies that discourage unemployed workers from even applying for aid.

The benefits are drawn mostly by people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own.

1. Nice! So when the next economic depression or the the like happens, these folks will be ...

forced to leave NC or try to get by on next to nothing during their time of need?

Kind of nice for the state to have your back, during a downtown in the job market due to many different factors, such as company moving out of state, going bankrupt, etc., all due to the company and not the worker (sarcasm).

Funny that one's taxes go to support these very same businesses with tax credits, etc., services, and yet won't support the workers in their time of need. Go figure.
