40,000 Metro Detroiters to Lose UI Benefits

According to the Detroit Free Press, over 40,000 Metro-Detroiters in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties are likely to lose their UI benefits by the end of 2009.

In the next 6 weeks, about 10,000 will lose their unemployment benefits and the other 30,000 will have coverage expire prior to 12/31. This will likely result in an increase in people heading to food-banks and seeking other types of government assistance.
