Another 1.4 Million workers file for unemployment last week and some benefits are near the end

52.7 MILLION people are now OUT OF WORK

The number of Americans filing jobless claims rose for the first time since March, showing the need for aid isn't waning even as the extra $600 that bolstered weekly checks during the pandemic comes to an end next week.

A total of 1.4 million more Americans filed for unemployment benefits for the first time as the coronavirus surges throughout many states, and recently reopened businesses shut their doors to slow the virus's spread.

The latest wave of applicants may get payments that are significantly lower than what many unemployed Americans received in recent months, as an extra weekly $600 provided by the federal government is scheduled to end this week.
