新华社华盛顿11月12日电(记者王伟)美国劳工部12日发布报告称,美国上周首次申领失业救济人数降至70.9万人,就业市场复苏步伐继续放缓。


美国劳工部(Bureau of Labor Statistics)发布的这份报告显示,在截至11月7日的一周,美国申请失业救济的人数比上周上修后的75.7万人减少了4.8万人。


这是过去34周以来,该数字第四次降至80万以下,也是第12次降至100万以下。


上周首次申领失业救济人数进一步下降。但是,继续提出索赔的个人总数仍在上升,”富国证券(Wells Fargo Securities)首席经济学家杰伊·h·布莱森(Jay H. Bryson)在一份分析报告中写道。


报告显示,截至10月31日当周,继续领取失业救济金的人数减少43.6万人,至679万人。


与此同时,截至10月24日当周,领取流行病紧急失业救济金的人数增加159,776人,至414万人。流行病紧急失业救济金是一项联邦计划,为那些无法享受正常国家救济金的人提供额外13周的救济金。


截至10月24日当周,各州和联邦政府各项福利申领人数减少37.4179人,但仍高达2160万人,表明疫情严重扰乱了劳动力市场。


“简而言之,劳动力市场虽然有所改善,但还远远谈不上‘正常’,”布赖森说。

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The number of initial jobless claims in the United States fell to 709,000 last week, as the labor market continues to recover at a slowing pace, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.

In the week ending Nov. 7, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits decreased by 48,000 from the previous week's upwardly revised level of 757,000, according to the report released by the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics.

It marks the fourth time in the past 34 weeks that the number has dipped below 800,000, and the 12th time it has come in below 1 million.

"The number of initial jobless claims fell further last week. But, the total number of individuals who continue to file claims remains elevated," Jay H. Bryson, chief economist at Wells Fargo Securities, wrote in an analysis.

The number of people continuing to collect regular state unemployment benefits in the week ending Oct. 31 decreased by 436,000 to 6.79 million, the report showed.

Meanwhile, the recipients of Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, a federal program that provides an additional 13 weeks of benefits for those who exhaust regular state benefits, rose by 159,776 to reach 4.14 million in the week ending Oct. 24.

The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs -- state and federal combined -- for the week ending Oct. 24 declined by 374,179 yet remained elevated at 21.16 million, indicating the pandemic's severe disruption of the labor market.

"In short, the labor market, although improving, is far from 'normal,'" said Bryson.
