Will Workers Survive State Budget Belt-Tightening?

Author

  • Matthew Sherman

Abstract

As state governments face budget gaps of tens of billions of dollars in FY2009 and FY2010, this issue brief calculates the potential detrimental effects of state budget cuts on unemployment. While Congress considers a national economic recovery package, this issue brief highlights the fact that aid to state and local governments could help avoid spending cuts and ensuing job losses.
