Billions in Unemployment Paid in Error
Here's a pretty interesting interactive map showing the billions in unemployment paid in error:
"The Labor Department launched a plan to crack down on the improper payments, targeting Virginia, Indiana, Colorado, Washington, Louisiana and Arizona in particular for their high error rates. Those states will undergo additional monitoring and technical assistance until their error rates dip below 10% and remain there for at least six months, according to the Labor Department."

As bad as it is/has been, it still could be even worse...
