Unemployment claims in New York have been met by 147,000 American Asians over the past four weeks, while 2,100 people have applied for unemployment benefits in the same period last year. CNN reports about this.
According to the publication, there is a 6,900 percent increase over the previous year, mainly due to the massive closure of Chinese restaurants due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As for the total number, 3.8 million citizens have applied for unemployment benefits, and the increase in unemployment has significantly exceeded the projected rate.
It is noteworthy that before the Coronavirus pandemic, the record number of remaining citizens was recorded in 1982, when 665 thousand citizens simultaneously demanded compensation for 7 days.
