Fed: Jobless Rate to Stay above 9 Percent in '10

Ad Feedback

Many Americans that have been hit hard by the economic crisis are eager to put 2009 behind them.

The year ended with the unemployment rate at 10 percent. A record 20 million people collected unemployment benefits during 2009.

The Federal Reserve predicted unemployment rates will stay above 9 percent through the end of 2010.

Such a slow place of hiring could force the Obama administration to spend as much as $70 billion this year to extend unemployment benefits.
