Another 1.5 Million File Unemployment
ANOTHER 1.5 MILLION WORKERS FILED FOR FIRST-TIME JOBLESS BENEFITS LAST WEEK
(CNN) – The US economy has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks as some lockdown restrictions have eased.
But millions of Americans are still seeking unemployment aid to make ends meet.
The Department of Labor reported on Thursday another 1.5 million workers filed for first-time jobless benefits last week.
That brings the total claims filed to more than 45-million since mid-March, when the coronavirus pandemic forced the US economy to basically shut down.
