The ‘Fuse’ has been lit, …5 …4 …3 …2 … Yet ANOTHER 1.5M (5+5+5) claimed jobless benefits last week, signaling stubbornly high layoffs. ‘Just shy’ of 50,000,000 (5).
by Jay Heflin | June 25, 2020 Washington Examiner
The number of new jobless claims last week was 1.5 million, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.
Economists projected that between 1.3 million to 1.4 million people would claim unemployment benefits.
In one bright spot in the report, the total number of people receiving unemployment benefits, meaning not just people making new claims but also those who have been receiving benefits for weeks, dipped below 20 million, to 19.5 million, for the week ending June 13. The number had been above 20 million since April.
For last week, an additional 728,120 filed for new Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, which is a special category of eligibility for self-employed workers or people seeking part-time work created by Congress in the March CARES Act relief bill. PUA claims are not included in the initial jobless claims total of 1.5 million, so the total number of new claims was more than 2.2 million.
California had the largest surge in initial claims, nearly 290,000. The state also had over 86,000 PUA claims last week. That was largest, though, as Pennsylvania had over 104,000 claims that week.
The continued extreme high rate of jobless claims suggests that the economy is recovering from the pandemic slower than expected. Some economists projected that job losses should have dipped below 1 million by now.
The job losses in Thursday’s report come as the nation on Wednesday hit a record number of new coronavirus cases. New cases topped almost 50,000 (5), and five (5) states had new highs of COVID-19-related hospitalizations. Those five (5) states were Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
The resurgence of coronavirus cases in certain parts of the country is having a chilling effect on commerce in those areas, which puts a damper on hiring.
Restaurant reservations have flagged in areas where spikes in infections are occurring, according to the restaurant app OpenTable.
Phoenix has seen a decline of at least 60% (6) in restaurant reservations since infections started to increase after a lull earlier in the month. The city suffered a 2,233 spike in virus infections on Tuesday.
Reservations have also recently declined by roughly 70% (7) in Houston, where the infection rate is now 1.3 times greater than it was seven (7) days ago.
The reopening of restaurants has been blamed for the spike in infections in Florida, according to Miami Mayor Francis Suarez.
“When we started opening up our restaurants, unfortunately, I think society started to think that we were signaling the all-clear,” he told the Local 10 news station.
Hours worked have decreased in states dealing with a rise in coronavirus infections.
Homebase, an organization that helps businesses record workers’ timesheets, has a database that shows that the number of hours worked in Texas, Arizona, and Florida have declined by roughly 4% over the last seven days.
The spike in virus infections prompted Apple to close its stores in Houston. The computer retailer closed 11 stores in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Arizona last week because of increased infections of the disease

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).
. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
