Rising Unemployment numbers in PA

According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, Pennsylvania's unemployment rates are on the rise.

The numbers reflected by this published report are both sobering, and alarming.

-Unemployment rose to 7 percent in January.

-PA lost 3,500 jobs in January.

-The number of people looking for work in the civilian sector has risen to 6,446,000. That is an increase of 5,000 from the previous month.

The Pennsylvania Unemployment Act offers some help in these difficult times by providing weekly benefits that are based upon length of employment and total amount paid into the unemployment system.

The law firm of Wolf, Baldwin and Associates, P.C. can help you receive benefits that are due to you. The variety of issues that determine whether or not you are eligible for unemployment benefits are complex and unique to your own situation. We cover a variety of these concerns in our article regarding "Unemployment Compensation." Feel free to contact us at our Pottstown, PA or West Chester, PA offices.
