(Worthy News) - New claims for unemployment insurance fell 3,000 to 218,000 in the second full week of June, the Department of Labor reported Thursday.
Forecasters had expected 220,000 new jobless claims — an extremely low level, but up 2,000 from the week before.
Low jobless claims are a good sign. They suggest that layoffs are infrequent, and accordingly that job creation is high. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
