Unemployed squeezed on health insurance
For all of 2008, the economy lost a net total of 2.6 million jobs, and newly unemployed Americans will have to spend about 30% of their jobless benefits on average to pay for health insurance through their former employer, according to a new report. If they want coverage for their families, it will take more than 80% of their unemployment check, according to the report by Families USA.
