US Jobless Claims Rise
VOA - Thursday, December 1st, 2011
The number of people signing up for unemployment compensation rose slightly last week in the United States, a sign that the labor market remains troubled.
Thursday’s report from the Labor Department says new jobless claims rose 6,000 to a nationwide total of 402,000.
On Friday, government experts will publish the latest unemployment data, which is expected to show that the unemployment rate stayed at 9 percent.
Economists surveyed by news agencies also predict that the economy will have a net gain of 150,000 jobs in November, which is just slightly above the number needed to accommodate new entrants to the work force.
