The number of people collecting unemployment in America hit a record high of nearly 4.78 million last week.

The week ending Jan. 24 saw a seasonally adjusted 588,000 new unemployment claims, 3,000 more than a week earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

In Texas, the unemployment rate was at 4.2 percent in December of 2007, 5.7 percent in November of 2008 and 6 percent last month.

The national unemployment rate rose to 7.2 percent in December, up from 6.8 percent the previous month and from 4.9 percent a year earlier.
