Business Report: New jobless claims

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As we discuss the difference between being out of work, and working but still struggling, I thought we might look at hard numbers of residents filing claims for unemployment benefits.

These figures are from last week, the seven days to last Sunday. The larger number is total claims, including repeat filings by people who were already out of work.
Kauai 97/381
Oahu 1,203/5,483
Molokai 9/67
Maui 234/986 (includes Lanai)
Hilo 266/856
Kona 141/646
