In preliminary figures released Thursday morning by the U.S. Department of Labor, unemployment claims in Tennessee rose dramatically for the week ending March 21.
The numbers, which have not been figured for what the department calls “season adjustment,” show 39,096 unemployment claims for the week that ended last Saturday.
During the previous week that ended March 14th, 2,702 unemployment claims were filed in Tennessee. A jump over of well over 36,000 claims.
