1 million Californians filed for unemployment

by ChivePretzel

According to this source. While this only accounts for the state of California, I thought Wall Street estimated around 2.25 million unemployed nationwide? I wonder what the real numbers are for the other states. Please post your state’s numbers and source if you can find them so we can add them up before the official nationwide numbers come out.

EDIT: I’ll start adding up the numbers by state if you can provide a source. Wow, so far, this is pretty sad 🙁

EDIT: All of these sources are saying these are claims from the past week or two. This quarantine is going to last for the foreseeable future so expect more claims throughout April…
