US unemployment claims rise to 745,000 as winter storm hit job market

The number of US workers seeking unemployment benefits rose slightly to 745,000 at the end of February, the Labor Department said. The figure has now brought the total for the Covid-19 pandemic to nearly 80.4 million. The slight rise in jobless claims in the pandemic-devastated job market is attributed to the winter storms in southern states, especially Texas, which triggered long power outages.

But weren't there supposed to be 379,000 new jobs added? That's a net gain of what? Wouldn't it be nice if news articles could actually explain their data?
