North Dakota to end supplemental federal unemployment benefits
By Neal A. Shipman
North Dakota will be joining the list of at least 16 other states that are terminating their participation in the federal government’s pandemic-related unemployment assistance programs in an effort to address workforce shortages.
“After fighting through severe stress and financial hardship, many North Dakota businesses that survived the pandemic are now facing an unprecedented labor shortage as they attempt to recover,” stated N.D. Gov. Doug Burgum.
