New Jobless Claims

Wampum got to the numbers before me. 442,000. Ouch.

UPDATE: One can get the full BLS survey results here. Here one can see the estimates including "discouraged workers," "marginally attached workers," and "plus total employed part time for economic reasons." In other words, unemployed plus underemployed plus those who have given up. That unemployment rate is 10.4%.
