The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits dropped 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 350,000 last week, though the total was elevated for the third straight week by technical problems in California. The Labor Department said Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013, that the less volatile four-week average jumped by nearly 11,000 to 348,250. (AP Photo/John Amis, file)
