First-time claims for unemployment insurance in Louisiana for the week ending September 27 decreased from the previous weeks’ total.

Mechelle Broussard, business consultant for Louisiana Workforce Commission, said there was only a slight variation during September for Webster Parish.

“Due to the fact that it was a small variation, I really can’t say that it would be one specific reason,” Broussard said.

Week 1 – Week Ending September 6 – Number of Initial Claims 28 – Number of Weeks Claimed – 183

Week 2 – Week Ending September 13 – Number of Initial Claims 17 – Number of Weeks Claimed – 180
