Good news on job front
Good news on the job front tonight, the labor department says weekly applications for jobless benefits fell last week to 369,000 thousand.
They say that is a level consistent with modest hiring.
This new number is 23,000 less than the previous week.
Right now, the unemployment rate stands at 7.8 percent, the lowest level since 2009.
This is due in large part to a jump in part-time employment.
