The US Department of Labor has announced that unemployment claims have increased the rate of 216 thousands of applications over the week ended June 2 to 2,000. The week's data was not set.
The number of unemployed people fell to 202,000. This is the lowest level for the week ended September 15. Economists say unemployment dropped to 212,000 in the past week.
