Some 1.4millionpeople filed initial jobless claims last week, up to 12,000from the revised level of the previous week, which was the first increase in 16 weeks.

Florida's unemployment rate in June was 10.4 percent, and the July rate will be released on August 21. June's rate was 11.1%, down from the 14.7% posted in April when the US economy virtually shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected initial claims to tick up to 1.45 million.

Residents of MA filed 4,155 initial PEUC claims in the week ending July 25, 612 lower than the previous week. BLS had expected claims to fall by 180,650.

Ohioans filed 423,452 continued jobless claims last week, which were 352,850 fewer than the peak earlier this year.

"The looming expiration of federal unemployment benefits without a clear-cut replacement threatens a chunk of consumer spending power that has sustained households and made its way back into the economy".


People line up outside a Kentucky Career Center hoping to find assistance with their unemployment claim in Frankfort, Kentucky, US, June 18, 2020. Two-thirds of the claims filed, 829,697, sought the extra $600 a week provided under the CARES Act.

OH has received more than 1.5 million new unemployment claims since the pandemic struck, which is more than the combined total for the past three years.

Roughly 1.2 million benefits have been claimed, and 96 percent of them have received at least one payment, which still comes out to roughly 50,000 New Jerseyans who have not gotten a single payment. That compares to 1.7 million people for the comparable week in 2019.

While some states have seen unemployment applications plummet from record highs after the coronavirus pandemic roiled America's employment picture, some have suffered stubbornly high job losses months into the recovery.

Laid-off workers in Idaho filed 4,703 new claims last week, the department said Thursday.
