The United States Department Of Labor reported today another week of high unemployment claims thanks to COVID19, but the 884,000 revised by 3,000 that were reported last week was the same exact number this week, but we have now crossed the staggering number of 60 million who’ve filed for unemployment since the COVID19 pandemic began.

Though, the only real adjustment in this week’s report was the insured unemployment rate, rising 0.1 percent 9.2 after dropping to 9.1 last week, leaving the number who filed at 13,385,000, increasing by 93,000 from last week.
