Unemployment claims in California shot to their highest level in three months, topping 145,000 filings last week, the government reported Thursday.

California workers filed 145,400 initial claims for unemployment during the week that ended April 3, an increase of 39,000 from the 106,400 claims filed the prior week, the U.S. Labor Department said.

Nationwide, jobless claims totaled 744,000 during the week ending April 3, up 16,000 from the week before.

California now accounts for 19.6% — about one out of every five — of the jobless claims being filed in the United States, Labor Department data shows.

The current weekly claims totals in California are the highest they’ve been since the week ending Jan. 9, when workers filed 182,600 initial jobless claims.
