Enhanced federal unemployment benefits that were put in place during the pandemic came to an end over the weekend. Roughly 107,000 Coloradans will lose their eligibility, according to state labor officials. About 30,000 will no longer receive an extra $300 per week. Tamara Chuang has been reporting on this for the Colorado Sun. She joined Colorado Edition to talk about what the end of these benefits will mean for unemployed people.
