WASHINGTON (AFP) – New jobless claims in the United States remained close to their to lowest levels of the year last week, according to Labor Department figures published Thursday.

Jobless claims hit 420,000, down 3,000 from the previous week’s revised level.

Last week’s new claims were the second-lowest of 2010 after a mid-November drop to 410,000.

The new number is better than predicted by most economists, who had expected claims to hit 424,000.

The four-week moving average, which helps smooth volatility, remained near lows seen in 2008, highlighting a stabilization in the battered labor market.
