U.S. Jobless Claims Fall to 381,000 Play

Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Fewer Americans than forecast filed applications for unemployment benefits last week, reflecting a pullback following the Thanksgiving holiday and fewer seasonal firings which may signal the labor market is on the mend. Jobless claims dropped by 23,000 to 381,000 in the week ended Dec. 3, the fewest since February, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington.
