1.2M Jobless Claims Filed Last Week

For the 20th straight week, over a million Americans filed for unemployment aid last week, with 1.2 million claims filed.

While jobless claims were a bit down from the previous week by nearly 250,000, the recent claims come just as the critical $600 weekly federal jobless payments have ended.

MSN says that 16.1 million Americans are currently collecting unemployment aid from their state as Coronavirus cases spike in the west and the south.
