Marty Cantor answers questions about finances and the latest unemployment numbers
News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen is joined by CPA and economic development consultant Marty Cantor to look at the latest unemployment numbers, and answer viewers' questions about finances during the COVID-19.
Cantor also spoke about how to handle your bills during this financial crisis.
About 1.5 million laid-off workers applied for U.S. unemployment benefits last week, a historically high number, even as the economy increasingly reopens and employers bring some people back to work. The latest figure from the Labor Department marked the 11th straight weekly decline in applications since they peaked at nearly 7 million in March as the coronavirus shut down much of the economy and caused tens of millions of layoffs.
