  • Google, New York build new unemployment website to handle claims surge
    • New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that he’s simultaneously managing stresses to the state’s health care system and mitigating threats to an economy increasingly composed of unemployed residents. In New York, as in many other states, this has largely meant ensuring that the government’s aging computer systems can withstand the barrage of applications for unemployment benefits. Cuomo said during his daily briefing that New York has been working with Google this week to launch a new website at 7 p.m. Thursday, but also warned that many of the state’s reactions are merely its best attempts to weather an unprecedented crisis.
  • (Wisconsin) State projects 27% unemployment rate due to COVID-19
    • Wisconsin’s jobless rate has skyrocketed to nearly 27% due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state’s shuttering of thousands of businesses to combat the disease, according to a new estimate from the state Department of Workforce Development.
  • States’ Unemployment Compensation Trust Funds Could Run Out in Mere Weeks
    • Six states, which collectively account for over one-third of the U.S. population, are currently in a position to pay out fewer than 10 weeks of the unemployment compensation claims that have already come in since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
