Nearly 22,000 Granite Staters filed for unemployment last week, a fallout from the coronavirus crisis that forced many businesses to shutter or scale back, the federal government reported Thursday.
“It’s a big number and we’re probably going to see more big numbers going forward,” Laconia economist Russ Thibeault said.
There were 21,878 initial claims filed for the week ending March 21, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Nationwide, nearly 3.3 million people filed fresh claims.
