“In the week ending Nov. 15, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 542,000, an increase of 27,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 515,000. The 4-week moving average was 506,500, an increase of 15,750 from the previous week’s revised average of 490,750.”

We’re solidly in crisis territory. Previous peaks were:

10/82: 695,000
3/91: 509,000
