Unemployment Claims Are Higher Than Forecasts This Week

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

More Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week than forecast.  

The Labor Department says it received 214,000 requests, up 7,000 from the week prior.  

Most analysts had been expecting today's number to come in at right around 206,000.  

While the figures were higher, they're still at a near-half century low.
