A Trend Everyone Hates: Unemployment Rises by the Millions (Again)

Skimm This show

Summary: For the fourth week in a row, US unemployment claims have risen by the millions. We’ll explain what Congress is doing to try to curb that trend. Meanwhile, there’s a new test that some say could help us get back to normal life. We’ll break down what these antibody tests are all about. Also on today’s show: we’ll explain why — despite orders to stay put — some people are venturing outside to protest. This morning, theSkimm hosted a live online presentation, Unemployment, Skimm’d. We explain what the latest unemployment numbers mean for your wallet, and how to navigate the unemployment benefits process.  Call and leave us a voicemail at: 646-461-6370 to shout-out a loved one or share how you’re helping your community during the pandemic.
