U.S. Jobless Claims +20K to 332K in Sept. 11 Week; Survey 320K
By Sarah Chaney Cambon
Jobless claims rose slightly last week but remained near a
pandemic low, as layoffs stabilize amid an economic slowdown tied
to rising coronavirus cases.
Initial unemployment claims rose to 332,000 last week from a
pandemic low of 312,000 a week earlier, the Labor Department
reported Thursday. The four-week moving average for claims, which
smooths out weekly volatility, fell to 335,750, the lowest level
since March 2020.
