JOBLESS CLAIM NUMBERS DROPPING AFTER HUGE SPIKE

(Wayne County, IN)--Wayne County’s weekly jobless claim numbers are coming back down following a big spike.  When the announcement was made several weeks ago that the extra $300 weekly benefit would continue into September, eight times as many Wayne County residents as normal filed jobless claims.  Now, in the last week, those claims have been cut nearly in half.  Wayne County has dropped from 308 claims to 180 in the past week.
