UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS UNADJUSTED DATA. OH BOY. The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 410,302 in the week ending May 29, an increase of 3,427 from the previous week. SADLY, WE ARE SO CLOSE TO TURNING THE CORNER ON THIS DEPRESSION, yet, it looks like we are starting to fall backwards. We have never had a recovery, but we almost made it to where we were generating more jobs that there were increases in the Labor Pool.
