Over 127,000 North Carolinians Have Lost Their Unemployment Benefits This Week

As federal jobless assistance ended on September 4, millions nationwide have lost their unemployment benefits. Well over 100,000 of those individuals are right here in North Carolina.

The data released by the North Carolina Department of Commerce on August 20, 2021 shows 222,315 residents are currently unemployed.

Approximately 78% of those people were collecting some form of unemployment insurance, and now that federal benefits like PEUC, PUA, FPUC and MEUC have ended, almost 125,000 individuals will be left without benefits.

The Good News

The current labor market in North Carolina is a "tight market". That means there are more jobs than there are people seeking work, and less competition from other applicants for each position. (note- this determination is from mid-summer, and now that UI benefits have ended and more people seek work, we may see a change)

As of late July 2021, there were 380,000 job openings in North Carolina.

A "tight market" means employers may have a hard time finding workers, and will be forced to pay higher wages, or offer some other incentives.

Trending right now are "sign-on bonuses". A sign-on bonus happens after an individual hires onto a position and fulfills job duties and obligations for a designated period of time. This is not instant money. Often the employee is required to work at least six months in good standing, and sometimes sign-on bonuses are doled out in increments over the course of a year.
