Applications for US unemployment aid tick higher to 254,000
from The New York Times
More Americans sought unemployment benefits last week but the number of applications remained low, the latest sign that layoffs are scarce. The Labor Department said weekly applications for jobless aid rose 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted 254,000. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, ticked down to 256,000, matching a 43-year low first reached in April.
