The number of new applications for unemployment benefits fell 35,000 last week to 310,000, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.

The claims hit their lowest level since the start of the pandemic, even as the delta variant sweeps through the country. Thursday’s jobless claims number was less than forecasters’ expectations of 335,000.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Thursday report was being closely watched by economists to see what impact the nationwide cessation of expanded federal unemployment benefits may be having on new applications for unemployment.


Mark Hamrick, Bankrate’s senior economic analyst said, “With another significant move lower, new jobless claims have reached a fresh pandemic era low, seemingly on the verge of finally pushing below the 300,000 level. The decline of 35,000 from the previous week’s upwardly revised level puts them at 310,000. They were in the low-to-mid 200,000 range before the pandemic.”

  1. What idiot in their right mind that waited months to get unemployment, be so stupid to jump off unemployment, just to have the threat of lock downs again. And then have to wait months again for an unemployment check ! And on top of it NO extra goverment money and No free Rent, This time! The next lock down is going to be even worse!

  2. The number of NEW claims may be down BUT are they counting all those still receiving benefits? NO! Maybe the reason that the numbers are down is because there aren’t that many people left that hadn’t claimed before.
