Millions of Americans are set to lose their extra unemployment benefits next month. According to recent reports, 7.5 million workers will be cut off from the supplemental federal relief payments by Sept. 6. This includes the extra $300 per week on top of regular unemployment payments.

Businesses have complained about a lack of workers, despite the fact there are more than 9 million open jobs for around 5.5 million unemployed workers. Reports suggest there is little momentum for the White House to extend unemployment benefits beyond Labor Day.
