      Union Members Are More Likely To Receive Unemployment Benefits, Study Finds

      Millions of jobless Americans have struggled to get unemployment benefits during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. But one group of workers likely had more luck navigating the overwhelmed state agencies administering those programs: union members.

      A new study published by the Washington Center for Equitable Growth shows that members of unions are more than twice as likely to apply for unemployment benefits than workers who are not in unions.

    2. Wall Street Has Its Worst Day Since 1987

      Wall Street Has Its Worst Day Since 1987

      The escalating coronavirus emergency Thursday sent stocks to their worst losses since the Black Monday crash of 1987, extending a sell-off that has now wiped out most of Wall Street’s big run-up since President Donald Trump’s election.

That puts it way past the 20% threshold to make this a bear market, snapping an unprecedented, nearly 11-year bull-market run. The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 10% for its worst day since a nearly 23% drop on Oct. 19, 1987.

Investors continue to buy up low-risk assets like bonds, sending yields to record lows. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 463 points, or 1.8%, to 25,311. The S&P 500 lost 54 points, or 1.8%, to 2,922. The Nasdaq fell 143 points, or 1.7%, to 8,423.
