US Weekly Jobless Claims Climb To 870,000 As Pace Of Economic Recovery Slows

25 September 2020

New US jobless claims for the week that ended on Saturday totaled 870,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The reading came in above the consensus economist estimate of 840,000 and marked an increase from the previous week. Continuing claims, the aggregate sum of Americans receiving unemployment benefits, reached 12.6 million for the week that ended on September 12. That was higher than economists' forecasts but declined from the prior period.
