Initial unemployment claims down in Wisconsin

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Fewer Wisconsinites are seeking unemployment benefits.

The state’s Workforce Development Agency said yesterday that initial benefit claims are at their lowest since 2007. Secretary Reggie Newson said it’s another sign that Wisconsin’s economy is getting better.

First-time claims for jobless benefits have stayed below 8,000-a-week for five weeks in a row. The last time that happened was in 2005 – and it’s only the second time it happened since 2000. The state’s weekly unemployment claims first dropped below 8,000 during the week ending July 20th – the first such drop since September of 2007.
