Unemployment claims up but still near ’07 lows

WASHINGTON — Initial jobless claims rose to 336,000 last week, but remained near their lowest level since 2007.

The number of people filing for first-time unemployment benefits was up from the previous week’s revised figure of 323,000, which was the fewest since October, 2007, the Labor Department said Thursday.

The less-volatile four-week average continued to drop last week, falling 2,250 to a new post-Great Recession low of 330,500. The last time the four-week average was lower was in November, 2007.
