We Just Broke The Unemployment Record… AGAIN!
We Just Broke The Unemployment Record… AGAIN! – How to Choose
So last week, we shattered the previous record for unemployment filings in a given week. And this isn’t the kind of record you are proud of. This is like the kid in school who held the record for the most days absent.
And that number came in at 3.3 million people filing for unemployment in a given week. The previous record was 695,000 new filings in a given week in 1982. Well, we beat that by a multiple of almost 5 last week (for the week ending in March 21st).
And this week, we did it again! The labor department released numbers earlier this morning. An additional 6.6 million people filed for unemployment last week (Ending March 28th). And if you are keeping track, that is 2x the previous record set last week and 9.5x the previous record in 1982.
So in 2 weeks time, roughly 10,000,000 people filed for unemployment.
