While the longest recession since the Great Depression has ended, the unemployment rate is still more than 9 percent. The economy is showing green shoots but state revenues remain down and the prospects of a jobless recovery seem very real. This session examines state and national unemployment trends, explores strains on the state-federal partnership in providing unemployment benefits, and discusses the state-level effects of federal legislation to spur jobs creation.
This audio recording of the session provides an update on unemployment trends and efforts to work with states on creating jobs.
