This is a trade sized pamphlet with cardstock covers and a stapled spine. The pamphlet is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. There is some beginning rubbing to the spine ends and corners of the covers. The pamphlet does have a vertical crease that goes front to back. The text pages are clean and bright. There is toning to the title page where a previous owner's typed notes were laid-in. "The Unemployment Insurance program (UI) provides temporary weekly cash payments to people who are unemployed through no fault of their own. The cash payments are meant for unemployed persons to temporarily provide basic necessities for themselves and their families while seeking new employment. The basic idea is that the money would be immediately spent, thus providing a direct stimulus to their local economies. UI is provided primarily through state governments with help from the federal government. Public unemployment insurance first appeared in Wisconsin in 1932 as part of an effort to provide relief to workers who were unemployed as a result of the 1929 financial collapse. Six other states followed suit before the first federal unemployment insurance program was created as part of the Social Security Act of 1935. By 1937, every state in the Union and the then-territories of Alaska and Hawaii had enacted their own unemployment insurance programs."
