The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits edged up slightly last week but remained at a level that indicated a healthy labor market. The Labor Department says weekly unemployment benefit applications rose by 2,000 to 315,000. The four-week average, which smooths out week-to-week volatility, was essentially unchanged at 315,000. The average has fallen by 9 percent since the beginning of this year. less
