First-time jobless claims drops

(HawaiiNewsNow) - There are new signs the job market is slowly recovering. The Labor Department reports first-time unemployment claims fell by 7,000 last week to 444,000. That's the third straight decline. Layoffs have also dropped back to pre-recession levels, and employers have slowly started hiring again as the economy starts to recover.
