US unemployment aid applications tick up to 371K
WASHINGTON – Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits ticked up slightly last week, the latest sign of slow but consistent gains in the job market.
The Labor Department said Thursday that applications rose 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 371,000, the most in five weeks. The previous week's total was revised lower.
The four-week average, a less volatile measure, increased 6,750 to 365,750. It had fallen to a four-year low the previous week.
