A tiny bit of the sting's been taken out of being jobless, in Oregon. The state has raised the weekly unemployment benefits to a maximum of $524. That's up about 3%. Craig Spivey of the Employment Department says the benefit amounts are set as a percentage of the average paycheck. The higher benefits apply only to people who file a claim after July first, and not to those who are already on unemployment.
