New Unemployment Total: Nearly 39 Million Nationwide

The U.S. Department of Labor has released another weekly jobs report, saying another 2.4 million Americans filed for unemployment last week.

That brings the total number of jobs lost since the coronavirus pandemic began to nearly 39 million.

The numbers continue to show a devastating trend of mounting unemployment claims after businesses were forced to close down across the country to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
