Jobless claims drop in sign layoffs easing

WASHINGTON — Fewer Americans applied for
unemployment benefits last week, a sign that layoffs are dropping and
companies may be stepping up hiring.


The Labor Department said Thursday that the number of people seeking
benefits dipped by 6,000 to a seasonally adjusted 388,000 for the week
that ended March 26. That's the second decline in three weeks.

Applications near 375,000 or below are consistent with a sustained
increase in hiring. Applications peaked during the recession at 659,000.

*THIS* is the data figure that's been dropping as a result of the existence of the long-term unemployed.....who have made no money or very little money & therefore do not qualify for new claims.

They simply 'drop off' & the media treats them as if they never existed.
