The United States Department Of Labor today continues to adjust into its new role with their weekly unemployment numbers, how low can figures in COVID19 go, now that COVID19 restrictions have been lifted, states like New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are full capacity once again, and mask mandates have been lifted, this week’s initial numbers in COVID19 are at an all-time-low once again at 444,000, 34,000 less than last week’s 478,000, revised down by 5,000 from 473,000.

Though unemployment claims have dropped dramatically week-by-week since last December, there are initial minor spikes in the insured unemployment rate, rising 0.1 percent to 2.7 percent as last week’s 2.7 percent stayed unrevised, the insured unemployment figure increased also too by 111,000 to 3,751,000 from last week’s 3,655,000, revising up 15,000 from 3,640,000.
