BOISE -- Thousands of out-of-work Idahoans are seeing their extended unemployment benefits come to an end.
The extension, implemented in mid-2008 to limit the impact of the recession, expired last week.
Over 6,000 workers receiving extensions will get their final payment this week.
The payments averaged about $250 per person.
Regular state benefits of 10 to 26 weeks continue for some 15,000 workers who have yet to find new jobs.
