Unemployed workers can expect to see a drop in their jobless benefits next year.

More people have filed for jobless benefits which has drained the money available.

Businesses will see their unemployment taxes go up to keep the money from running out. In 2010, employers will pay an extra 700 bucks. The maximum benefits that those without a job can receive each week, will drop 37 dollars.
