Montana, South Carolina to kick people off jobless benefits even as unemployment rises - CNBC
May 07, 2021 52 secs

At least two states will soon kick workers off pandemic-era programs that expanded and raised unemployment benefits.

The governors of Montana and South Carolina announced this week that they are ending their participation in the federal programs at the end of June.

The governors, both Republicans, blamed the unemployment programs for keeping workers home and causing a labor shortage.

Montana and South Carolina will exit the programs June 27 and 30, respectively.

More than 150,000 people in Montana and South Carolina are poised to lose their benefits early as a result of the cutoff, according to a CNBC analysis of Labor Department data.

Business groups like the Chamber of Commerce pointed to the unexpectedly weak April jobs report as a reason to end the unemployment programs.

The lobbying group believes the extra $300 a week and other benefits are keeping people from looking for work.

"The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market," the Chamber said Friday.
