New Mexico Unemployment Insurance

 New Mexico - Twenty six million dollars is on its way to the unemployed in New Mexico.

It is coming from the U.S. Department of Labor because the state qualified for the money by letting part-time workers claim unemployment benefits.

It also gave dependents allowances for unemployment insurance beneficiaries.

The money will be used to pay benefits and administer the unemployment insurance program.

Part-time workers used to be ineligible to apply for benefits.
