According to the Ministry of Labor of the country, Americans filed 187 thousand applications last week.

The number of Americans who applied for initial applications for unemployment benefits in the last week turned out to be the lowest since September 1969. Such data was published on Thursday by the U.S. Department of Labor.

According to him, Americans submitted 187 thousand applications last week. This is 28 thousand less than in the previous week.

According to Bloomberg, the reduction in the number of applications for unemployment benefits is due to employers’ attempts to retain employees, as well as a large number of vacancies in the labor market. Another reason for this phenomenon is considered to be the high level of inflation, which supports the incentive of Americans to work.
