200,000 unemployed and rising

Stuff reports:

There are now more than 200,000 New Zealanders receiving either JobSeeker Support or the Covid-19 Income Relief Payment.

New data released from the Ministry of Social Development on Friday showed that 56,000 of those people had requested support since March 20.

This will rise again of course when the wage subsidies end.
