New jobless claims increase last week

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) State labor officials report that new jobless claims are down in Hawaii compared to the same time last year, but up when taking the short-view.

Hawaii News Now says according to the Department of Labor & Industrial Relations there were 1,881 new jobless claims last week. That is down about 7 percent compared to the same time last year, but an increase of about 200 from a week ago.

Labor officials say new claims rose on Kauai, Maui, Molokai, and in all three Oahu unemployment offices, but fell on the Big Island. The total number of jobless claims in Hawaii, when adding up old and new claims, is nearly 12,000.
