Nothing To Do, Nowhere To Go 0

Jobless claims decreased by 10,000 to 340,000 in the week ended Oct. 26 from 350,000 the prior period, the Labor Department reported today in Washington.


The four-week average of claims, a less-volatile measure, rose to 356,250 last week from 348,250.

The story attributes approximately 10,000 of these to the Republican shutdown and also reports that 2.88 million persons are receiving continuing benefits beyond the normal time limit.
