Jobless Claims Fall

HousingWire reports the Labor Department says the number of Americans filing jobless claims fell to 367,000 the week ending May 5, 1,000 fewer than the previous week. This pales in comparison to the week ending April 28 when claims fell 27,000. The four week moving average hit 279,000, 5,250 fewer than the previous week’s drop-off. Capital Economics suggests any drop in claims is important in the economic recovery.
