BREAKING!!! Unemployment Claims At 352,000. Fewest Claims Since 2008.
The number of people seeking unemployment benefits plummeted last week to 352,000, the fewest since April 2008. The decline added to evidence that the job market is strengthening.

Applications fell 50,000, the biggest drop in the seasonally adjusted figure in more than six years, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average, which smooths out fluctuations, dropped to 379,000. That's the second-lowest such figure in more than three years.

For all of 2011, the economy added 1.6 million jobs. That was up sharply from 940,000 in 2010. Economists say they expect roughly 1.9 million more jobs to be added this year, according to a survey by The Associated Press.

Snip - Less than 50%.

This is absolute and total bullshit.

There are less people because less people can qualify now.

Eventually the "new" unemployment claims will be ZERO because there will be nobody left that will qualify.

If the stats come from the govt assume they are 100% lies.

Re: BREAKING!!! Unemployment Claims At 352,000. Fewest Claims Since 2008.
to qualify for unemployment benefits you have to have at least 12 months of prior employment and your employer must have paid in for those 12 months. also, you have to have been let go for no cause.

then you can qualify for a claim.

if a person gets unemployment and sits out for a year, then finds a job for 3 months...he cant just walk back in for another round of unemployment benefits..he no longer qualifies because he doesnt have the 12 month record.

you should expect numbers to come down because of this.

also, the fact that 350,000 people lost jobs is still alarming...

how many jobs were created during this same time?

im always amazed by the media's statement....unemployment is down because we have fewer claims filed.....

yes, 350,000 may be lower than the 400,000 previously recorded, but my GOD! 350,000 more people just lost their jobs...that is horrendous, not a good thing.

if 400,000 new people are filing jobless claims per month, that is a loss of 4.8 million jobs a year...if they add back 1.9 million jobs this year as expected, then how is that positive...we still have a net loss of almost a million jobs?

The media is going to start slanting for Obamas win. Im tellin you guys obama is goin to win again, there is no doubt, well maybe a little. But he is chosen to destroy us and bring the end times and the lead candidate is Romney??? Obama 2.0 if anything, hes probably for SOPA and he even said he was for NDAA...we are fucked as a country...Ron Paul wont win so dont try to say he will. Electoral College wont vote for him if they could.

and keep in mind...that is just the reporting of applications for unemployment...there are many that dont file and cant cause they got fired for cause or got fired and hadnt worked a full year to qualify.

there are probably double the loss of jobs in reality.

Blah blah blah..

Claims went down because the fuck load of people that filed claims a year or more ago have exhausted their benefits. They no longer qualify.

You do understand this don't you?
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.
