New jobless benefit claims rise unexpectedly
WASHINGTON – The number of newly laid off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week as the recovery of the nation's battered labor market proceeds in fits and starts.
The Labor Department said Thursday that the number of new jobless claims rose to 480,000 last week, up 7,000 from the previous week. That was a worse performance than the decline to 465,000 that economists had expected.
Guess not for these newly laid-off people. And seasonal holiday workers will be out of work soon.

Is the recession over?
Depends on which of Obama's admin/advisers you ask.. Watching them on Sunday Morning is like watching a ping pong match.. One says one thing.. One says another... Didn't they talk to EACH other before they hit the Sunday circuit? lol
