I heard this on the news this morning. They said bad weather prohibited companies from hiring. How does this work? In my mind I thought maybe the unemployment is down because maybe some of those people who have been receiving this benefit the time may have ran out. And why blame the weather? Sure it has been crazy bad in a lot of the country, but, not the entire month of January. I am just having random thoughts, what do you think?

I agree with the PP. Those on 99 weeks are starting to lose their benefits. That doesn't mean they found work. When you base the numbers only by those RECIEVING benefits, it's inaccurate.

Here is a list of states and all 6 rates. It is a couple of months behind, but quite shocking imo.
There are 4 at or above 20% and a bunch hovering close to it.
