Department of Labor Reports that 3.28 million people filed for unemployment for week ending March 21, 2020

DOL numbers released Thursday reveal both a rise from the prior week (just 282,000 claims filed) and an all-time high that is more than 4 times greater than ever recorded (the previous weekly high was 695,000 in October 1982). Broken down by state, the picture shows most states reporting a massive spike in unemployment last week.
