Jobless in Tennessee to get $25/week more
According to the Nashville Business Journal people who are receiving unemployment insurance in Tennessee will receive an extra $25/week courtesy of Obama Stimulus package.
This brings the maximum weekly unemployment payment in Tennessee to $300/week---which is a good thing, because prior to this Tennessee had the 5th cheapest weekly payout in the United States.
According to the business journal story, the $25 payment will be retroactive to the week of February 28th---So people will receive a one time bump of $75 in order to make up the payments.
