Unemployment claims drop for second straight week

Published: Thu, September 2, 2010 @ 9:45 a.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The number of people requesting unemployment benefits declined for the second straight week, suggesting that the slowing economy isn’t prompting widespread job cuts. New claims for unemployment aid fell last week by 6,000 to a seasonally adjusted 472,000, the Labor Department said today. Economists had expected a slight increase, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

Right on point censoredship. I guess this is the change you can believe in, or is it the HOPE message. Wait until the summer employment ends, I guess they wil find a way to spin that also. The proof is in the near 10% unemployment rate remaining stagnant. Where is the improvement?
