Nebraska jobless claims drop, but still far above average

Nebraska’s unemployment claims have fallen from their recent record highs but were still far above average last week.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports that Nebraska residents filed 16,391 new claims during the week that ended April 11, down from around 27,000 the week prior.

Nebraska set record highs for three straight weeks as state officials imposed new social-distancing restrictions on business and residents hunkered down at home to keep the virus from spreading.
