First time claims for unemployment insurance were up statewide in the first week of 2012.

The state labor department says almost 4,400 people filed for unemployment insurance, which is up from about 3,200 the week before.

The department goes on to say about 3,000 more people have filed for unemployment claims all across the state within the last month, so they need to put some 70,000 people to work.
