South Dakota reports an uptick in new unemployment claims


The Associated Press - July 16, 2020

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — New unemployment claims in South Dakota increased during the most recent reporting period as the U.S. economy struggles to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.

But the number of continued state claims has decreased from its highest mark in May.

The Department of Labor and Regulation reports that 1,160 people made new claims for unemployment benefits during the week ending July 11.

That’s 325 more than the previous week, and an increase of 40%.

A total of 18,687 people were receiving unemployment benefits statewide on July 4.

The number of continued claims has decreased by 6,500 from a historic high in May.
