Unemployment has officially ended, will people go back to work?

The pandemic-related unemployment has officially expired.

Many people are cautious as they go back to their careers from before the pandemic, worried about the uncertainty of their industry.

The programs that ended were the $300 weekly federal assistance, benefits that freelancers and gig workers could receive, and assistance for people in need after exhausting their NYS options.

Many people anxiously await to see if the ending of federal benefits will help the unemployment rates.
