Good news: Massachusetts’ unemployment rate was only 5.5% in November, 2008, while the United States’ unemployment rate was 6.5% in November, 2008.

Bad news: Because Massachusetts’ rate was lower than the national average, Bay Staters who are currently unemployed will only receive seven extra weeks of benefits whereas those on unemployment in states with rates higher than 6% will receive up to thirteen extra weeks of benefits.
