Jobless claims increase 4,000 from last week

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Unemployment claims are up.

The Labor Department reports about 367,000 Americans filed for first-time unemployment benefits last week.

That's 4,000 more than the week before.

The weekly jobs report is generally seen as an indicator of how healthy the job market is.

Economists are predicting another lackluster monthly jobs report, which is due out Friday.
