7 Initial claims dipped 2,000 last week to 339,000, higher than the 330,000 expected, indicating the gov't shutdown may have curbed job growth. Data estimates were used for 4 states and D.C. due to Veterans Day. The prior week was revised up to 341,000 from 336,000. The 4-week average fell by 5,750 to 344,000, but is still above the pre-shutdown level.
