US workers file 787,000 new jobless claim amid Covid-19 pandemic

The number of Americans who lost their jobs and applied for unemployment benefits in mid-October sunk to a new low in the Covid-19 pandemic. Unemployment claims filed through state programs fell by 55,000 to 787,000 in the seven days ending October 17. However, the decline is partly a result of fewer new claims in California owing to a temporary freeze on new applications in the state.

So 200,000 deaths and 750,000 people lose employment in one reporting period because the answer to the virus is to ruin us economically, Awesome strategy libs, force health and economic misfortune on all 340 million of us because 200,000 have died, most with major co-morbidities.

I think a lot of this is because the airline subsidy ran out and they finally laid off workers that they were retaining without having the business to justify them.

What an amazing economy our president has built for the country! No wonder the senate has time to subpeona Jack and Mark about Twitter and Facebook bias, there’s just so much time because there are so few pressing issues in this country 🙄😂
