Initial jobless claims, a tool to measure U.S. layoffs, climbed by 9,000 to 227,000 in the week ended June 23.

That exceeded the 220,000 estimate of economists polled by MarketWatch, but claims are still near the lowest level in half a century.

The more stable monthly average of claims, meanwhile, rose by a smaller 1,000 to 222,000, the government said Thursday.

The number of people already collecting unemployment benefits, known as continuing claims, fell by 21,000 to 1.71 million.

Claims often bounce up and down after school year ends and summer begins, but the broader picture is unchanged. Very few people are being laid off and companies are struggling to find skilled workers to fill a sea of open jobs.
