BENEFITS TO AGRICULTURAL WORKERS UNDER THE UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION AMENDMENT OF 1976

The "Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 1976" are expected to provide income protection for about two-fifths of all hired agricultural workers. The program became effective in January 1978. Of these insured workers, three-tenths are expected to receive benefits, expected to average about 14 percent of average annual earnings if 1970 employment relationships hold. Nearly one-fourth of unemployed farm workers who receive benefits will likely exhaust their entitlements before finding new jobs. Large interstate variations are expected around these averages as a result of differing State qualifying regulations, benefit schedules, and personal work histories.
