Initial Claims Fall to 43-Year Low

Trump works fast! He’s not even president yet, and there’s already good news. This morning, we learned that initial unemployment claims fell to 235,000 last week (seasonally adjusted).

That’s the lowest since November 24, 1973 when it hit 233,000. Of course, the country’s population is more than 50% larger than it was 43 years ago.
