The latest round of bad news from the unemployment front:
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - First-time unemployment claims rose again last week, reflecting a job market that is still struggling to get on a consistent road to recovery.
About 428,000 Americans filed for their first week of unemployment benefits last week, up from a revised 417,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. It marked the highest level of new claims since late June.
Question is, will this help the White House make their case on the jobs bill? Or help the GOP make theirs?
