When it comes to unemployment insurance, Michigan is the worst state in the Midwest for unemployed workers. A recent report from the Michigan League for Public Policy says the maximum benefits paid to the state's unemployed workers are the lowest in the region.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about what Michigan needs to do to clean up its act.

They also discuss economists' prediction that Michigan won't see a big economic rebound in upcoming years, the state Department of Health and Human Services' optimism when it comes to the fate of the Children's Health Insurance Program in Michigan, and more frequent sexual harassment training for state lawmakers.
