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.Click here for more details.

    This is good news because of the state of the economy things have been very hard for a lot of people they are hurting. It would be nice to see a turn around in the job market so that people can find employment. But I do have a concern about the article that say we are out of step with the rest of the world richest industrialized nations it is tmie for us to step things up.
