La. first-time jobless claims increase
Slightly fewer than 1,000 more Louisianans filed first-time claims for unemployment insurance for the week ending June 9 than did the previous week. The state labor department reports today that initial claims increased to 4,272 from the previous week's total of 4,177. However, the figure was below the one for the comparable week a year earlier, when there were 4,445 initial claims. The four-week moving average, which is considered a less volatile measure of claims, increased to 4,070 from the previous week's total of 3,851. Continued unemployment claims filed for the week ending June 9 totaled 33,841, an increase from 32,533 for the previous week. The four-week moving average for such claims increased to 32,573 from 32,035.
