Unemployment applications up; no Sept. report to be released during shutdown
OKLAHOMA CITY – The number of people applying for unemployment benefits increased slightly last week.
Officials at the Labor Department said applications for benefits went up by 1,000.
The slight increase leaves the level of applications for unemployment benefits near a six-year low.
The labor department is not expected to release its September jobs report as scheduled Friday because of the government’s partial shutdown.
