Market Watch with some info on the expiry of benefits for 8.9m in the US.
Two critical programs expired on Monday.
- One provided jobless aid to self-employed and gig workers
- another provided benefits to those who have been unemployed more than six months
- Further, the Biden administration’s $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit also ran out on Monday
The impact of these ahead will likely be at least a loss of some spending that would otherwise be present. Something to be aware of ahead.
