Another 1.3 Million Americans Have Claimed Unemployment Benefits
Another 1.3 million Americans have claimed unemployment benefits. The United States Department of Labor announced that.
As a result of the corona crisis, tens of millions of people in the United States have already relied on the social safety net in recent months.
The number of new unemployment benefits thus remained almost the same as last week, when just over 1.3 million claims were claimed.
This measured the smallest decrease in weekly benefit applications since March.
Economists generally expected a further drop to 1.25 million unemployment claims in one week.
