Lawmakers stressed that the fourth unemployment benefit extension in the past 18 months was necessary because initial signs of economic recovery have not been reflected in the job market.

"The truth is that long-term unemployment remains at its highest rate since we began measuring it in 1948," House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said. About one-third of the 15 million people out of work have gone at least six months without a job.

The bill would provide another 14 weeks of benefits to all out-of-work people who have exhausted their benefits or will do so by the end of the year, estimated at nearly 2 million. Those in states where the jobless rate is 8.5 percent or above get an additional six weeks.

The unemployment rate is now 9.8 percent and economists are predicting that there will be tens of thousands of new job losses as new job market figures are released.

The extra 20 weeks could push the maximum a person in a high unemployment state could receive to 99 weeks, the most in history. Unemployment checks generally are for about $300 a week.

With tomorrow's Labor Department announcement,Wall Street expects 175,000 more jobs to go missing and the unemployment rate to inch up to 9.9 percent in tomorrow's announcement.

But anyone looking for a job already knows this. The reality is uglier than the stats.

Despite the fact that the Labor Department knows there's a statistical glitch in its figures, it will add about 100,000 to its total because it believes small companies should be -- but probably aren't -- creating jobs.

You can also ignore whether the unemployment rate does or doesn't reach the supposedly psychologically important 10 percent level.

When the government includes people who can only find part-time work but want to be employed full time, the jobless level was already at 17 percent last month.
