Income for the Unemployed: The Variety and Fragmentation of Programs. Studies in Unemployment Insurance.
Murray, Merrill G.
Unemployment insurance is the principal income program for workers who lose their jobs, however, it does not provide adequate income, nor does it provide for all unemployed persons. Because many different programs are operated for this purpose, they tend to have a fragmented effect and leave many unemployed persons with no income support. This study is an inquiry into the variety and fragmentation of programs that provide income support, the extent to which unemployment insurance should be expanded and improved, and how it can be better coordinated with other programs.
