The unemployment rate in America is improving, at least according to the U.S. Bureau Of Labor Statistics, but millions of people are still jobless. Families across the country have been relying on unemployment benefits to get through these difficult times.
Until recently, people expected their unemployment benefits to be extended. Many were counting on that money for their day-to-day survival. Benefit extensions were dropped with very little warning, causing an untold number of people to wonder how they would get by.
