In the US, increased the number of applications for unemployment benefits
More and more people want to get unemployment benefits, but the number of applicants remains close to the minimum, which is a positive sign of employment growth.
The Department of Labor said that the number of weekly announcements increased by 11 thousand, seasonally adjusted, to 278 thousand. Over the previous month, their average number dropped by 6500 to 292 750. This is an average of 15 percent over the last year.
Weekly growth occurred after a decrease last week on 42 by thousands to 267 000. There is imbalance due to the end of the holiday shopping season and the recent Martin Luther King holiday, when unemployment agencies were closed. The government is trying to adapt to such seasonal fluctuations, but is not always able to do it perfectly.
The Friday employment report is expected to show that employers added 230 000 jobs in January, according to a survey by FactSet. In 2014, almost 3 million new places were created, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5,6 percent, writes AmericaRu.com
