Jobless Claims Fall To 336-Thousand
(Washington, DC) -- First time jobless claims are down slightly. The Labor Department report shows 336-thousand first-time unemployment claims were filed last week. That's three-thousand less than the previous week. Economists had predicted the number of first time claims would come in at 335-thousand. Meanwhile, the Consumer Price Index bumped up point-one percent in January. That gain matched economists' expectations.
