Senator Steve Daines

How many Montanans have filed unemployment claims since March 15? How many folks are out of work across the country in the last three weeks? The answers: more than 60,000, and 16 million, according to Montana Senator Steve Daines, who credited his entire team for working non-stop to provide relief that will help the country get past the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Senator Daines’ Voices of Montana interview on Monday, the 5th generation Montanan recalled the uncertain times his family was facing during the recession of 1982, when a previous record 695,000 Americans lost their jobs in one week. Listen to the podcast for that story and more.
