New jobless claims in Alabama post another notable decline
Thursday, 3 September 2020 New jobless claims in Alabama posted another decline last week – the second consecutive week new claims have hit their lowest point since the very start of the Covid-19 crisis.
881,000 people - less than expected - filed new unemployment benefit claims in the last week of August. But the labor market is still struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic and less government support. Caroline Malone reports.
