Jobless benefit claims fell last week

Posted:

A new report by the Department of Labor shows jobless claims fell to the lowest level in four years last week.

The number of Americans filing new claims for state unemployment benefits saw the largest significant decrease sine March 2008. The numbers dropped from 26,000 to a seasonally adjusted 350,000.

This is a much steeper drop than Wall Street analysts had expected.
