6.6 Million More People Lose Jobs

6.6 million more people filed for unemployment benefits last week, totaling more than 16 million in the last 3 weeks during the coronavirus pandemic. That is 10% of the of the workforce, and the real numbers are likely much worse. Because many jobs don't qualify, many of those unemployment or underemployment are not represented in that figure. "These are tragic numbers. It's going to take a long time to recover," states David Pakman.
