Nearly half of U.S. states ending unemployment aid early

Nearly half of U.S. states are stopping unemployment aid earlier than planned. In the American Rescue Plan of 2021, the federal government authorized an extra $300 a week in jobless aid and extended pandemic unemployment assistance for the self-employed earlier, which will expire on September 6. However, by canceling participation in these programs early, it leaves millions of Americans struggling in the lurch this summer.
