Coronavirus leaves at least 10% of the US workforce unemployed

With record 6.6M new claims for unemployment benefits filed for the week ended Apr 4, nearly 10% of the American workforce has lost jobs in the past three weeks. A total of 16.6M people have now filed for unemployment benefits. This number could surge as many states are yet to clear the unemployment application backlogs. The figures are the largest job losses in records dating to 1948.

Hate to say this, but it’s probably true: it’s going to get worse before it gets better. “How much worse?” is the question.

10% of 340,000,000 is 34,000,000. Something seems wrong with the math here when one of the articles says 17,000,000 off the jump.

combine this with current stock performance and you see how useless it is to use the stock market to judge how well the TRUE economy is doing. we pumped a trillion dollars a DAY into the stock market, but that didn't keep these people employed.
