Weekly ap­pli­ca­tions for U.S. job­less aid fall to 265,000. Fewer Amer­i­cans

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

ap­plied for un­em­ploy­ment ben­e­fits last week, con­tin­u­ing a nearly two-year trend that sug­gests a solid job mar­ket.

Weekly re­quests for job­less aid fell 10,000 to a sea­son­ally ad­justed 265,000, the La­bor De­part­ment said Thurs­day. The less volatile four-week mov­ing av­er­age for claims was 263,000.

The his­tor­i­cally low num­ber of peo­ple seek­ing job­less aid is a pos­i­tive sign for the econ­omy.
