Jobless claims at 7-month low, building permits jump | Reuters

Reuters) - New U.S. claims for jobless benefits hit a seven-month low last week, while permits for future home construction rebounded strongly last month, bolstering views the economy was gaining traction.

The U.S. economy continues to show signs of strong momentum. The improvement in claims underscores that the gains in labor market activity over the past few months are being sustained," said Millan Mulraine, a senior macro strategist at TD Securities in New York.

Slowly we crawl out of the muck. Changes still needed.

For righties it isn't good news, just as job growth isn't, without those what would you Socialists whine about. Oh wait, there are those FEMA camps you say are wainting for you and the American Muslims waiting to take over any second now
