ABSTRACT
The article discusses the employment data released by the U.S. Department of Labor on March 2, 2006. The first-time applications for state unemployment benefits has increased to 294,000 on a seasonally adjusted basis. The IFR Markets' poll of economists predicted an estimated 285,000 benefits claims. The increase in benefits claims is attributed to the two holidays in February, namely the President's Day and Lincoln's Birthday.
