États-Unis: 1,48 million de nouveaux inscrits au chômage, en baisse mais plus important qu’attendu

The new applications for weekly unemployment benefits in the U.s. fell to 1.48 million last week, however, a number higher than the expectations of analysts, according to figures released Thursday by the department of Labor.

The ministry said that this number, set for the week of 15 to 20 June, is “in decline” and it is to be compared with a revised increase (1,540 against 1,508 originally estimated) for the previous week. This is higher than the expectations of analysts who had forecast about $ 1.25 million of new requests.
