Millions more Americans file for unemployment

May 28, 2020 19:25 IST

The US Labour Department has announced that 2.1 million more Americans filed for unemployment benefits in the last week. Since mid-March, more than 40 million Americans have lost their jobs - that's about a quarter of the US workforce. Last month, the unemployment rate hit nearly 15%, which is the highest since the Great Depression. These latest numbers come as all 50 states begin to ease Covid-19 restrictions in some form and businesses nationwide slowly start to reopen. The United States' Covid-19 death toll has passed 100,000, the highest in the world.
