WGRC News - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 2:29pm

The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits jumped last week, pushing total applications above 300,000 for the first time in nearly three months. Weekly applications rose 21,000 to a seasonally adjusted 313,000, the Labor Department said Wednesday. That’s the highest level since the first week of September. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose 6,250 to 294,000. The increase is unlikely to raise concerns about the broader health of the job market.

An inspector general with the Treasury Department located 30,000 of the emails on disaster recovery tapes. Last spring, the IRS told Congress that two years’ worth of emails from Lerner, the woman at the center of the scandal, had been lost in a hard drive crash. The missing emails corresponded with the period during which the IRS blocked the tax-exempt status for dozens of conservative groups in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.
