US jobless claims remain near 5-year low
Recently, fewer Americans applied for unemployment benefits, a sign that layoffs continue to dwindle in a gradually improving U.S. labor market. Initial jobless claims in the last week of August fell by 9,000 to a seasonally adjusted 323,000, which was just a tick above a five-and-a-half year low, the Labor Department said.
