The orders followed the late-July expiration of federal welfare. Trump’s executive order extends improved unemployment benefits to the end of the year at a rate of $400 weekly, with 25% paid by the state., but on Wednesday, the Department of Labor released guidance that said that states are not forced to pay the additional $100, meaning many Americans will rather get $300 in additional payouts, not $400.
The CARES Act expanded welfare significantly and offered an extra federal payment boosting state advantages. That boost, called Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), offered out of work Americans an additional $600 per week, on top of their routine state welfare. FPUC ended at the end of July.
