Tennessee's long-term unemployed, people out of work for more than 26 weeks, will get the fourth lowest checks from the government in the mail.

"The Tennessean" reports that the average weekly unemployment check in the state is $235, but payments are taking a nearly 11 percent cut. Now, people could lose more than $600 over the next six months.

These unemployment cuts impact about 30,000 Tennesseans and 1.6 million people nationwide.
