NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Jobless claims fell last week, the government said Thursday, by more than analysts expected, dropping just below the benchmark 400,000 that signifies job-market weakness.

The Labor Department report said 399,000 people filed for benefits in the week ended Sept. 13, compared with a revised reading of 428,000 in the prior week. Economists, on average, expected 410,000 new claims, according to Briefing.com.  Top of page
