WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - First-time claims for state unemployment benefits fell sharply in the latest week but remained elevated due to Hurricane Sandy, the Labor Department reported Wednesday. The number of initial claims in the week ending Nov. 17 fell 41,000 to 410,000.
Claims in the previous week were revised to an increase of 90,000 to 451,000 compared with the initial estimate that they rose 78,000 to 439,000.

all the obamabots hear is : decreased..
that’s all that matters. that is all that they hear on the 10 sec newsbreak on their car radio, or the 10 sec newsbreak on whatever stupid TV show they are watching on the MSM.
what a g*damn shell game.
This country is screwed.
There is still a massive backlog of those trying to file for the first time. Democrap governors did their best to hinder those trying to apply. Colorado is estimated to still have over 50,000 first time applicants that can’t seem to get approved. Usually 30,000 are on unemployment, but, thanks to Obama and the Democraps, there are over 200,000 now, not including that estimated 50,000 still trying to get approved.
I like to put things in perspective for the liberals who can't seem to grasp what that number really represents.
Jobless claims will increase by at least 18,000 next month.
Notice that the average now after the election is OVER 400,000 new unemployed per week AND that before the election it the average was around 350,000, almost 100,000 more average now that the election is over. This is just more fraud on top of the voter fraud. this is a communist dictatorship fake elections, fraud from government (well what government is accountable or honest or efficient anyway NONE as socialism doesn’t work).
fall...rise, who cares now?
And of course, the old fall back (just in case they need it) - George Bush.

Sandy for some occasions and Bush for others. Isn’t life grand in the bubble liberal world?
Obama Adm almost as big a liar as Satan himself
I could have sworn there were 100,000+ layoffs around the country the day after the election.
All those people found other jobs? Or have they just not filed yet?
Is Sandy going to be blamed for everything for the next 4 years? Sandy, the new GW Bush for the Obama regime.
how many were added to disability?
Oh, such great news! We have lots to be thankful for this week! /s
Those people don’t seem to be suffering much. Why, they have enough money to go to football games and stuff.
Sorry, couldn’t resist.
I’m confused. I thought the claims were averaging 350k???
What - Sandy hit California HARD /sarc
