As states prepare to reopen their economies, 2.1 million Americans have filed for unemployment claims last week, according to the Department of Labor.

  • In 10-weeks 40+ million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits.

  • A total of 1.19 million people filed claims through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program last week, per NBC News.

Some Good News:

The DOL data also showed a decrease of 3,860,000 of those applying, meaning nearly 4 million people came off unemployment benefits this month.
