Mostly the New England states pay more while the Midwest and Southwest naturally pay less for unemployment.

In NJ you get 60% of your average weekly pay that you got on the job, up to a certain maximum. I think the max is a little under $600.

It's been a max of something like $380 a week here in Texas for some time. Oklahoma's unemployment max is even higher at $390.

Maximum weekly unemployment benefits by state (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/11/20/national/a140117S46.DTL&hw=unemployment&sn=006&sc=718 - broken link)
