@adam I don't buy into (un)employment rate numbers. They are based on assumptions made from data when people try to file for unemployment. Maybe there are other metrics they pull from that I don't know of, but that number seems awful low for what I'm seeing around me and hearing from those closer to being 'in the know' than I am.
I will NEVER again file for unemployment benefits since NYS and 29 (more?) other states now require 'verification of identity' via https://www.id.me/. I will NEVER create an account/profile with https://www.id.me/ or any such 'identity verification' entity. Therefore, I will never again be able to file a claim for benefits.
Eventually, id.me ID profiles/data will be hacked or leaked. They manage tens (>hundred?) of millions of ID accounts. MANY have had significant issues w/id.me w/creating accts and/or getting services provided, such as unemployment benefits. id.me requires video-selfie & other data that is everything that a hacker would need to remotely impersonate anyone. I refuse to give such data at all but particularly never to one company. Please research id.me.
