More apply for unemployment aid


Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits ticked up slightly last week.

The Labor Department said Thursday that applications rose 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 371,000, the most in five weeks.

The figures “continue to suggest steady but modest U.S. employment gains,” Robert Kavcic, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said in a note to clients. “That said, claims stubbornly refuse to break below the ... range that has been in place for the past year.”
