Another 1.4 million people filed for unemployment last week. It marks the 18th week in a row that more than a million people filed jobless claims in a single week. For the past four months, unemployed workers have received an extra $600 in weekly benefits, but that program is about to expire. Meanwhile, a four-month moratorium on evictions under the CARES Act expires today. Princeton University’s Eviction Lab predicts as many as 28 million people could be evicted in the coming months.
