Nebraska Breaks Unemployment Filings Record For Second Week In A Row
The state of Nebraska once again broke the record for the most unemployment claims in one week. Labor Commissioner John Albin says 26-thousand-788 Nebraskans filed for unemployment last week, topping the previous week's mark of 24-thousand-572. Albin says his office has received as many claims in the last three weeks as in all of 2019. However, Albin says he believes the number of claims has peaked, and he expects to see a decline in filings going forward.
