U.S. outpaces Colorado in new jobless claims

According to BizJournals: “Initial claims for unemployment benefits in Colorado rose 44 percent in the week ending Dec. 13 from the same week a year ago, a lesser increase than the 60 percent national average, the Department of Labor reported Wednesday.

In Colorado, 5,917 new jobless-benefits claims were filed that week, versus 4,097 in the comparable week of 2007. The pace of new claims in the state declined slightly from the week ending Dec. 6.”
