Weekly Jobless Claims Decline In Ohio, Rise Overall

The Labor Department says first-time claims for unemployment insurance benefits rose last week from a seven-year low.

336 thousand Americans filed claims, an increase of 13 thousand from the previous week. Ohio had the second highest rate of decline among the states. Claims in Ohio fell by more than 15 hundred due to fewer layoffs in manufacturing.
