Minnesota hits end of $300 weekly jobless bonus

Minnesota exhausted its share of funds from a temporary federal program providing a $300 weekly bonus to unemployment payments, officials said Thursday.

That will affect most of the 320,000 Minnesotans who continue to collect jobless benefits six months into the pandemic.

At the same time, new data released Thursday show Minnesota’s job recovery sped up a bit last month with the addition of 40,500 jobs. That was better than July but not as good as June.

The state’s unemployment rate fell slightly to 7.4% in August, down from 7.6% in July. It has continued to come down since reaching a historic high of 9.9% in May, but remains more than double than what it was before the pandemic.

By comparison, the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 8.4% last month from 10.2% in July.

Steve Grove, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), said federal officials have
