WASHINGTON Fewer people sought U.S. unemployment benefits last week, driving down the level of applications to nearly the lowest in seven years.
The Labor Department says weekly applications for unemployment aid dropped 11,000 to a seasonally adjusted 304,000. That's not far from a reading of 298,000 two months ago, which was the lowest since 2007, before the Great Recession began. [...]

An, in related news, the Titanic has stopped sinking.
Great news! 20 trillion dollars later and we’re back to square one!
Short holiday week
Blah blah blah.
Bring back American jobs.
Jobs. Stop importing everything.
Fewer and fewer people have jobs to lose.
You really are a one trick pony, aren’t you?
Most people’s benefits ran out several years ago.
I support American jobs.
I also post on other topics.
Yeah, it’s because they’re all collecting disability. No one’s working because democrats pay them to sit home.
At this point, they should be providing the percentage of the still working population this represents to provide some context to this statistic (that will be revised upward later).
Unemployment benefits expired for about 1.3 million people in December 2013, and about 2 million people have had their benefits run out since then.
The senate voted to extend unemployment benefits in March, but the house did not take up the bill.
What are you doing to bring back American jobs, other than bitching that other people aren't doing it?
What jobs do you want to bring back?
And how do you propose we get them back?
Most of the manufacturing jobs and agriculture jobs are being done by legal and illegal immigrants because they are willing to work for minimum wage (or less).
Perhaps you would be willing to put all your life savings at risk to create some AMERICAN jobs? What job would you create?
I have a job.
What I am saying is we have a MASSIVE trade deficit with the Peoples Republic of China.
We buy something along the lines of 440 billion dollars of goods (last year) from the ChiComs.
We only sell around 122 billion dollars of goods to them. (again, last year)
Every single year, we buy billions and billions of dollars more from China, then we sell to them.
Yet China manipulates their home market, to “protect” it.
We are selling out America, while China continues a massive protected home market.
That is flat-out wrong.
Bring back jobs, to America.
Then give it to someone else, and create an American Job.
Your posts are filled with platitudes about American Jobs, yet you offer no solutions. From what I read your solution would be for the United States to follow the example of China and manipulate the markets.
Well the average Chinese man works 16 hours a day and probably makes $10-$15 a day. If they don't work, they are sent to work camps where they will work for free.
If Americans worked like that, then we'd have plenty of American Jobs.
Is that the kind of jobs you want Americans to take? Forced jobs in a centralized economy?
Just thank God you have a job, and if you want more American Jobs, then create them. Hire some enterprising teenager to do your yard and paint your fence. Maybe someday he will become a landscaper or a contractor.
I believe out government needs to step in, and start protecting American workers.
How is a (big) question, but America cannot continue to operate the way we now do.
Both parties, are selling out our own country. China is very rapidly, about to take the global lead. If they haven’t already.
China is (rapidly) growing.
Yet we continue to blindly just send US jobs to China. We don’t even really own the factories, we are sending our jobs to. Just as minority interests. And the workers are certainly not American.
GOP stand up. Support American jobs.
