Arizona Unemployment Rate 7.4 Percent

Today I read that the Arizona Unemployment rate has increased to 7.4 percent. I had actually expected Arizona to have a higher rate of unemployment due to the large population. I thought it migh be more like California near 10 percent with certain cities headed towards 20 percent unemployment. Still with 7.4 percent unemployment there are many people hurting in Arizona. Lots more people will need to know about the Arizona unemployment application process as well as many others seeing a Arizona unemployment extension of benefits. The key with unemployment is to follow the process and play by the rules. Unemployment insurance is not a welfare benefit, it's merely a stop gap to keep you able to pay bills and seek other employment. If you use unemployment insurance as it was intended you'll be quite successful.
