WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The number of people applying for unemployment benefits dropped slightly last week.

The Labor Department reports weekly applications dropped one thousand to a seasonally adjusted 338,000, very little change from the previous week's figure.

Analysts predict April will show a gain of about 175,000 jobs when the month's employment report is released next week.
