(Washington, DC) -- Weekly jobless claims are down again.

The Labor Department reports 281-thousand Americans filed first-time claims for unemployment benefits last week, ten-thousand fewer than the previous week's revised total.

It's the lowest number of claims since March of last year. It's also basically in line with what most analysts were expecting.
