La­bor mar­ket bell­wether

Lodi News-Sentinel - - Business -

The La­bor Depart­ment re­ports to­day its lat­est weekly fig­ures on ap­pli­ca­tions for un­em­ploy­ment ben­e­fits.

Job­less aid ap­pli­ca­tions dropped two weeks ago to a sea­son­ally ad­justed 260,000, as claims re­turned to more nor­mal lev­els fol­low­ing the dis­rup­tions caused by Hur­ri­cane Irma and Har­vey. De­spite the impact of the storms, the over­all level of claims re­mains low, sug­gest­ing that most American work­ers en­joy job se­cu­rity.
