New unemployment claims explodes to over 3 million last week. This sets a record for new jobless claims in the US for as long as the metric has been tracked. "This week's could be even worse," says David Pakman, noting that more states have shut down. For a sliver of a silver lining, David Pakman says that many of these jobs are not "over," and are furloughs until those businesses can begin operating again. Though, the longer this goes on, the more businesses will be unable to open or operate at the former capacity.
The David Pakman Show is a news and political talk program, known for its controversial interviews with political and religious extremists, liberal and conservative politicians, and other guests.
