Jobless claims in surprise drop


The number of U.S. workers filing new claims for jobless benefits dropped unexpectedly by 10,000 last week to the lowest level in more than two months, government data Thursday showed in a report underscoring a healthy labor market.

Initial filings for state unemployment insurance aid for the week ended March 24 fell to a seasonally adjusted 308,000 from an upwardly revised 318,000 the prior week, the Labor Department said.
