Missouri unemployment approaches a half – million workers

(MissouriNet) —

Nearly 400,000 Missourians have filed for unemployment since the coronavirus started taking its toll on the state’s economy.

The latest state unemployment information shows another 59,000 Missourians have reported being out of a job. That figure is a notable decline from the previous week’s 101,000 jobless claims filed. However, the number of Missourians reporting being unemployed since mid-March has reached more than 398,000. That’s more than double the number of jobless claims filed during all of last year.
