As Indians worry about their job security and the government is haunted by the spectre of growing unemployment, there is bad news from America. Something that could add to the panic in India. According to media reports, the number of Americans outbreak has swelled to nearly 39 million.
More than 2.4 million people filed for unemployment last week in the latest wave of layoffs from the business shutdowns that have brought the economy to its knees, the Labor Department said.
That brings the running total to a staggering 38.6 million, a job-market collapse unprecedented in its speed.
