Connecticut’s unemployed facing major hardships as $600 federal benefits expire

The loss of $600 a week in federal unemployment benefits will have a direct impact on the unemployed. Volunteers here pick up cabbages to hand off to slowly moving vehicles at a Foodshare distribution center at Rentschler Field in East Hartford in May. Foodshare has been offering the emergency drive-thru distribution and reached approximately 1,200 households per day. (Mark Lennihan/AP)
