U.S. UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS DON’T LAST LONG COMPARED TO OTHER RICH COUNTRIES
Gary Burtless observes that the unemployment insurance (UI) system in the United States “is one of the least generous in the industrialized world.” But it’s not because weekly payments to replace lost wages are low—U.S. workers’ replacement rate is about average. It’s because U.S. states offer a much shorter duration of benefits than most other countries, an average of 6 months. If Congress doesn’t offset state-level cuts to their UI programs, “past and future cuts in state UI programs will exact a toll” when the next recession hits.
