Unemployment Benefits

Yet, as has been the case since November, the state and Triad jobless rate continue to decrease more because of individuals dropping out of the workforce than from net gains in hiring.

Initial state and federal unemployment claims in North Carolina remained on a modest uptick this week, according to the latest N.C. Division of Employment Security report Friday.

There were 1,486 claims Tuesday, 1,420 on Wednesday and 1,967 on Thursday.

Initial state and federal unemployment claims in North Carolina had a modest increase over the weekend after state Republican legislators approved ending federal benefits by as early as five weeks.

The N.C. Division of Employment Security reported Tuesday there were 1,064 claims Friday, 481 on Saturday, 1,633 on Sunday and 1,942 on Monday.

Weekly initial unemployment-insurance benefit claims in North Carolina dropped below 5,000 for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic.

North Carolina had 4,919 claims for the week that ended June 5, compared with a revised 5,932 the previous week.
