Josh Boak talked about federal extended unemployment benefits and “fiscal cliff” negotiations, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Topics included the difference between state and federal unemployment benefits, funding for unemployment insurance and who qualifies for it, the impact on the economy if benefits are not extended, and potential reforms for unemployment.
