Labor Unemployment Insurance
Topic Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment Insurance is the main U.S. government program that helps workers who lose a job through no fault of their own. By paying eligible workers a portion of their normal wage while they look for work, Unemployment Insurance mitigates the hardship faced by individual unemployed workers and simultaneously stabilizes the macroeconomy. Equitable Growth works to stimulate and disseminate research on the role Unemployment Insurance plays in the lives of workers and the economy as a whole.
