Unemployed? More help for you

According to CNN: “Congress passed legislation late Thursday to extend the period of government assistance to Americans struggling in the shrinking job market.
The bill, which was already approved by the House, is expected to be quickly signed by President Bush.
The measure helps people whose benefits have recently expired, extending benefits by seven weeks in most states and 13 weeks in states with unemployment higher than 6%.
Workers typically get 26 weeks of unemployment benefits, and it’s not uncommon for the government to extend that during economic slowdowns.”
