Weekly Jobless Claims Decline by 6,000

Initial jobless claims fell by 6,000 last week, to 386,000, the Labor Department said Thursday.

The figure was higher than economists’ forecasts of 385,000, Bloomberg reported.

The four-week moving average, a less volatile measure, fell to 386,750 claims.

The number of people receiving continuous jobless benefits fell by 15,000, to 3.3 million, in the previous week ended June 16.
