JOBLESS CLAIMS UP, LABOR MARKET STRONG

The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week to 260,000, but remained below the important 300,000 mark, which indicates the labor market is still strong. Last week’s numbers marked 85 straight weeks below the 300,000 threshold, the longest such period since 1970, when the labor market was much smaller. (Reuters)
